Elijah The Man, Part 1
“Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit” (James 5:17-18).
A few weeks ago we brought a message entitled, “The God of Elijah.” Today we want to look at the life of Elijah and see that although he enjoyed a great victory at Mt. Carmel, he was a man of like passions as we are and struggled with some of the same weaknesses.
First we see the need of importunity in prayer. We have the tendency to give up when we do not received an immediate answer to prayer but we see with Elijah the importance of continuing faithfully to seek God. We then observe the weakness of man.The prophet lost sight of what God has done for him and became gripped with fear. We then note the help needed and finally there was work to be done.
