Re:Verse passage – 1 Kings 18:30-39 (day two)

“O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and that I am Your servant…” vs 36b

Elijah makes sure to set things in the proper perspective. His first actions were to repair the altar. By doing so he was honoring the covenant that God had with Moses and the people of Israel. His prayer is one that we should take notice of. Elijah makes clear nothing wonderful that is about to take place is due to him. All the glory, all the honor belongs to the Lord. When we pray, how do we focus our prayers? How much attention do we give to honoring the Lord? Examine your prayer life today, and make an effort to not only exalt him, but to surrender any sort of pride, ego, or adulation that would take any focus from God. See how the Lord shapes your heart as a result.
