Topic: Raised From Death [Sunday September 20, 2015]

Text: 1 Kings 17:17-24

Key Verse: “And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived” (1 Kings 17:22).

The messenger of God is at once a seer, receiving God’s message for His people; a prophet, warning of danger and consequences of sin; and a servant carrying out actions and activities for the establishment of proper relationship between God and His people. Such a messenger carries the power and authority of the Lord.

He does nothing to earn self- praise or glory in the exercise of Our text deals with an ironic and perplexing situation. God in His majesty and power provided oil and flour for the widow who had demonstrated tremendous faith in Him by obeying his prophet. She went from nothing to something, believing by faith that God who was able to provide for her family in famine was also able to bring the dead back to life. Just then a calamity occurred, bringing death, grief and sorrow. But the God of miracles was available as always. The dead boy was restored back to life. Miracles are a clear manifestation of God’s power, love and compassion. They are to point beneficiaries to Him, the unchanging God and to His Son, Jesus Christ.

Today, believers perform miracles, healing for the sick and deliverance for the oppressed. Such miracle workers should claim no personal glory but point receivers to Christ. Have you received healing or deliverance? You must stay on God’s word and walk in His steps. That way, greater, miracles and blessings will attend your way

Thought for the day: Christ can give life to every dead situation in your life
