Fire to the Flood
"Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.”
1 Kings 18:43
In this passage we read how Elijah called forth in faith a Mighty rain storm. He prayed and prayed with his head down low until a small, non-intimidating cloud appeared. And as that cloud drew near, a Mighty storm unloaded water to a dry Kingdom.
