DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?
1Kings 17:1- "And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, 'As the Lord lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word'".
Do you know who you are? Knowing who you are will determine the kind of exploit you will do upon the face of the earth. In today's text, Elijah knew who he was, therefore, he was empowered to make a declaration and the heavens backed him up! Note carefully, Elijah said there shall not be dew nor rain for three years in the land except at his word, that is, except he gave a contrary declaration. Whao! Halleluyah!!
What gave Elijah such a confidence to declare that it is only by his own word? Not even by God's word. Elijah's confidence was in his location. Your location will determine your allocation and the kind of exploits you can perform in your journey into purpose. He said; "As the Lord lives, before whom I STAND...". Elijah was standing right! His location was also right! When you are standing right, you, I repeat, you alone is enough to deal with your adversaries.
Matt 18:18..."Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven...". Why it seems your word don't move your mountain is because you are yet to discover your location, that is, you are yet to know in whom you are standing.
Bro and Sister, I encourage you today to do a soul searching and find out where you are located. Can you be found in Him? When you are rightly located, you can call those things as be not as if they were. At your word, like Elijah, you can declare a thing, and it shall come to pass.
Declare it loudly; Lord, I seek a right standing in you!
