“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not. And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. .......” 1Kings 18:41-45 (emphasis added).
The perfect time is, the NOW time when the little cloud of the Holy Spirit in your inward life is going to grow, enlarge, expand, multiply and fill your entire being completely. And then will overflow and pour out from you to meet the need of the whole nation.
It rained over the whole nation after three and half years of famine.
Were you feeling dry spiritually and in the ministry for the past few years? Were you saying in your heart, “Nothing much is happening these days in my ministry, I am not seeing that real move of God as I desired to see in my lifetime”? Then get ready, you are the candidate in whom the indwelling Spirit is going to rise, multiply, flood and overflow so mightily to bless kings and nations.
What happened during the days of Elijah in the outward and in the natural is going to happen in you in the Inward and in the Spiritual now.
To God be the Glory!!
