Then Elijah said to Ahab, ‘Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.’- 1 Kings 18:41

Elijah did not just hear it was going to rain, but heard the abundance of it. When we believe the Word of God, we too, by faith, can expect the abundance of the manifestation of His promises. When what we expect does not materialize, we battle doubt and unbelief. 

Have disappointments diminished the fervency of our prayers? Do we hesitate to still believe God for something because it is taking longer than we expected? Do we still believe, but for only a little result rather than for all the manifestation? We must still believe God has His best for us, even we question our hearing of faith. God is increasing our hearing for the sound of abundance,  for such a time as this!

Our prayers can remain fervent because they indeed avail much for God’s will to be done! The Word of God that we hear, we can surely stand upon as we pray and never give up. We can count on the abundance of what He promises in His Word. Our expectations can be for much more than what we can ask or even think. We stand by faith, expecting God’s best, from glory to glory!
