1 Kings 18:36. When it was time for the evening offering, Elijah the prophet approached the altar and prayed:“O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.

Elijah had the right to ask God to prove Himself because Elijah had followed all of God’s instructions. Elijah knew God’s instructions because he pent much time in prayer, including listening time. God is always ready to give us instructions but we need the habit of listening. When we receive instructions we must follow through in faith that through our obedience God will act. When we don’t follow through we will hear no more until we confess our lack and obey His instructions. Our question is if we have not recently seen God working through us when did we last hear and follow through in obedience and faith? Let us learn to walk with God daily as an obedient and faithful vessel for God to work through us.
