“Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, ‘I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.’ Then Elijah shouted, ‘Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’” (the Bible, 1 Kings 18:44, NLT)
The Bible tells us that God’s answer to one of the worst droughts in Israel’s history was a cloud no bigger than someone’s hand. A tiny cloud, but huge potential!
Are you facing a drought emotionally, spiritually, physically, professionally, or relationally right now?
God is sending His cloud. It may not be very big or imposing. And perhaps it won’t be something that captures people’s attention.
But today, I invite you to trust Him…to not expect God’s “how” (which may be different than what you’ve imagined) but rather to place your expectation in the Lord Himself.
And yes, as surprising as it might seem, the Lord uses little things to pull us out of situations that are beyond us…
- Moses had a staff to save an entire people (see Exodus 4:2-3)
- A shepherd conquered Goliath with smooth stones (see 1 Samuel 17:40-50)
- The widow received what she needed to pay her debts and live, thanks to a bit of oil (see 2 Kings 4:1-7)
- The Savior of the world came…as a little baby (see Luke 2:10-13)
The power of the solution isn’t in its size, but in the might of the One who brings it about in your life!
