When God answered Elijah’s prayer for fire, He did it in such a way that everyone recognized He was God. The fire consumed everything that was on the altar, including the water. Water is supposed to put out a fire, but in this case the fire overtook what was created to overtake it. God moves in such ways in our lives for everyone around us to believe He is real, great and mighty!
God removes all that could come from men so there can be no doubt that it’s Him! When He manifests His glory, He opposes the natural. He feeds thousands with only five barley loaves and two small fishes. A coin appears in a fish’s mouth so taxes can be paid. Instructions are given to cast a net on the side where no fishes were before, and a great catch the fishermen can barely contain comes forth! Provisions come from unexpected places. Healing occurs when it is considered hopeless. A comatose patient sits up and starts praising the Lord. God specializes in doing what is unattainable, unachievable and unfeasible. Irresolvable differences can be reconciled. Success can be attained by the most unlikely to prosper. Salvation comes when all seems lost.
What situations are facing us that only a supernatural manifestation of God can handle? We can expect the Lord to bypass our faith, our understanding and move in amazing ways. He is awesome, able, mighty and wonderful! The LORD, He is God! The supernatural cannot be explained, but it can be attained, from glory to glory!
1 Kings 18:38-39 Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!”
