Yahweh, Day 75
Day 75, Yahweh… Validating His Word
1Kings 18:36-39 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
"Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that at Your word I have done all these things. Answer me, Lord! Answer me so that this people will know that You, Yahweh, are God and that You have turned their hearts back."
Then Yahweh's fire fell and consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones, and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell facedown and said, "Yahweh, He is God! Yahweh, He is God!"
Elijah appeals to God to uphold the Veracity of the Word/Message that He had given to Elijah. Yahweh is very concerned about validating His Word. It is paramount to upholding the veracity of His Name ... for if His Word cannot be trusted then His reputation/Name is tarnished.
Learn to intercede before Yahweh on behalf of the veracity/validity of His Spoken Word.
In your situation ... what is the tie to God's Word? That is where your appeal is to be focused … not on the behalf of your situation … but on the behalf of how God’s Word applies to your situation.
