From the Pastor's Desk

Over years, a truth has resurfaced repeatedly to me. In 1 Kings 19 God spoke to Elijah not by the wind or earthquake, but by the still, small voice. It was just a feather, so light and unobtrusive that it could have been written off except for one thing. It was God's voice, and He was about to move.

In 2 Kings 4 when the widow was about to lose her sons to the creditors, she had one small pot of oil in her house. She would borrow vessels to fill, and the oil would flow until all the bills were paid. It was just a hint of hope and blessing, one little pot so easily neglected. We need to shift our focus from lack to a limitless God. It was the beginning of the most spectacular move of God ever.

God is a God of more than meets the eye. He prepares for His people what no eye has seen and no ear has heard (1 Cor. 2:9). Searching skies for drought's end, the servant only saw a cloud as small as a man's hand (1 Kings 18:44-45). It wasn't very long before "the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain." It is God's way to prepare things beyond imagination, when only the slightest hint of anything can be detected. A cloud of hope is God's promise of downpour. Latch onto it and don't despair. God's forecast is outpouring and rain!
