Bible Verse of the Week: 1 Kings 18:43b

"Seven times Elijah said, 'Go back.'" -1 Kings 18:43b
Success is certain when the Lord has promised it. Although it may seem that God is not answering, it is not possible for Him to be deaf to our matters. Seven times Elijah's servant returned to report that the rain cloud God had promised had not yet appeared, but Elijah replied seven times to go back and look again. We must hold to our faith seven times seventy and never think of disbelieving. Faith is humble and pleads fervently upon God again and again. Believing souls become submissive and find it good to wait for and upon God. Elijah's believing prayer was fulfilled and so shall ours be. Ask with faith, and it shall be given to you. ~Jesselyn
