Just when your about to give up if you hold on past the give up moment GOD MOVES SUDDENLY
Elijah said to Ahab, “Up on your feet! Eat and drink—celebrate! Rain is on the way; I hear it coming.” Ahab did it: got up and ate and drank. Meanwhile, Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bowed deeply in prayer, his face between his knees. Then he said to his young servant, “On your feet now! Look toward the sea.” He went, looked, and reported back, “I don’t see a thing.” “Keep looking,” said Elijah, “seven times if necessary.”
And sure enough, the seventh time he said, “Oh yes, a cloud! But very small, no bigger than someone’s hand, rising out of the sea.” “Quickly then, on your way. Tell Ahab, ‘Saddle up and get down from the mountain before the rain stops you.’” Things happened SUDDENLY. The sky grew black with wind-driven clouds, and then a huge cloudburst of rain, with Ahab hightailing it in his chariot for Jezreel. And GOD strengthened Elijah mightily. Pulling up his robe and tying it around his waist, Elijah ran in front of Ahab’s chariot until they reached Jezreel. (1 Kings 18:41-46 MSG)
Was thinking about the diciples waiting in the upper room when It looked like all hope was gone and Jesus was dead. Then suddenly He walks through a wall and I to their midst. Just when they think hey we have Him back He leaves them once again waiting on the helper He promised. They waited in the upper room 10 days. I can imagine they were just about fed up with each other and trying to hold into Jesus words and not start bickering with each other in that room when SUDDENLY like a rushing mighty wind the Holy Spirit fell upon them.
Paul sure saw some suddenlys in his life. From the upper room to his jail house rock
The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. (Acts 16:22-26 NIV)
The bible says it only takes a faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains. Momma Jo sings Faith that moves me. It talks about not needing to move mountains but faith that moves me. If we move us we are really moving the mountain in our lives. The only thing that ever stands between us and God is us. Once that Faith moves us towards Him and out focus back on Him then like all these Suddenlys we will SEE ours. Start looking for all the right n praising God for your hand size clouds. Then get your rain costs out cause suddenly the down pour of what you've been standing n waiting for will pour out on and in your life.
