[The Glory Unveiled]
And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. [ 1 Kings 18:41 KJV ]
Many times when we receive a prophetic word or any word of promise from God, we tend to be carried away by the euphoric feeling of it’s fulfillment. Instead of doing something that will bring that word into the tangible realm, most of us do nothing. Once we receive the word, we assume that ends everything. As a matter of fact, things do not work like that. When the word of God comes to us, it is initially in the intangible realm. But when we begin to war with the word, inviting the overshadowing power of God, it becomes tangible. When the prophetic word came to Ahab, that there was the sound of abundance of rain, there was nothing physical in that moment to support that claim. In the next verse it says, Ahab went to eat and drink, trusting that there would be abundant rain indeed. But come with me, on an imaginary journey to see what would have happened if there was no one to pray and ensure that the intangible word becomes real. Obviously, Ahab will celebrate what he was expecting but his eyes will not see it. The word of God came to pass not because Ahab celebrated but because Elijah went to pray. This shows us that, after the word has been received, the first thing to do is to carry the matter back to God in prayer. Pray and demand that what had gone out of the mouth of God will come to pass. And then when that is done, you can go ahead and celebrate it. Yes, the celebration is also important, it is an action of faith that says “I believe that I will have what I am celebrating”. So, before you do what Ahab did, do what Elijah did first. And then we will see the manifestation of every promise.

Wisdom_Quote.: Until it is settled on the mountain of prayer, it cannot be seen in the valley of manifestation.
