10 KEYS - WHEN YOU CAN'T SEE ANYTHING COMING.
LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 1 KINGS 18:43 (NLT)
"Then he said to his servant, "Go and look out toward the sea." The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, "I didn't see anything." Seven times Elijah told him to go and look."
1.Rule number one - your carnal mind will never show you that there is something good coming .so don't count on it .believe what the Lord is showing you in your mind/spirit .Remember you are a spirit being and the spirit is more stronger than your flesh (physical senses).David prayed to God for his eyes to be opened in Psalm 119:18 "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law." .Key- when God shows you something good in your mind "grab" it with both hands.listen it exist , you can only receive it by faith , nothing else.
2.Your physical senses will never sense anything coming but the "facts" lol . Time to cast your fleshly imaginations down and pick up your spiritual antenna to receive what is coming . 2 cor 10 :5"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."
3.God will not show what is coming to the proud . Why? scripture says it better in the book of 1 Peter 5:5(ESV)"Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Key- when we doubt God , we are being proud . when we believe Him we re humble . Is a revelation I found out ." think"
4.Anytime you humble yourself before God by believing His word , He does not only show you what is coming , but tells you via His word what is coming . Why? He knows you believe Him. Prov 22:4"By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life."
5.Elijah was persistent . Now this is the key -
