Preached by Cortney Kluver (01:06)
The Christian life is supernatural. The Spirit of God lives inside every believer and yet elements of the supernatural makes us nervous. It’s easier to shy away from God’s power in everyday life than to embrace the possibility of it. The Spirit of God is orderly, but he pushes the us to the boundaries of our comfort.
Elijah was a great prophet of God but that doesn’t mean his access to God is different from yours. Elijah encountered the supernatural Spirit of God because he regularly invited the Spirit to move is noticeable and powerful ways. When Elijah was challenged by the false prophets and the Spirit of God fell on the altar, notice that the fire of God fell on a sacrifice that was prepared. It didn’t randomly fall in the middle of no where. The fire of God fell because of preparation and a prayer.
Listen as Cortney shares lessons we can learn from Elijah. Expect God to show up in powerful ways. Don’t fake the Spirit of God. Don’t hide from the Spirit of God. Expect the Spirit of God and let him show up when and how he wants.
