As New Testament believers it is not enough for us to say – “Where is the LORD, the God of Elijah?”
In specific situations where we believe God needs to move/act/respond – we should, by His grace, be able to rather remark – “Where is the LORD, my God Jesus Christ?”
Elisha was never wrong in having Elijah as a remarkable role model for what God could do. However, we have someone ‘greater than Elijah’ to emulate, call upon directly, and manifest the power of God in His will.
I think, the opportunities we get to minister or pray can bring God glorifying results, if:
- We can only think – It is not about us but about God.
- It is not to express our knowledge but what God knows.
- It is not about our capacity to love but how much God loves us and others.
- It is not about our potential but His omnipotence.
