We tend to look up to Old Testament figures as heroes for their most defining moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the walls of Jericho...and Elijah calling down fire on Mount Carmel.
When we look up to these biblical heroes, we shouldn't forget they had a backstory, months and years of development, even challenges, prepared them for the task which made them unforgettable.
All serious believers yearn to summon up the boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel, and pray down heaven into seemingly impossible situations. However, few are willing to go through the obstacles required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness come ahead with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.
Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to learn how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine, and how the emboldened, fiery faith you long for is being fashioned by God in your life right now.
