ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Tuesday 25th January, 2022

TOPIC: FIRST THINGS FIRST TEXT: 1 KINGS 18:30-46 Elijah began by fixing the altar of the Lord which was in ruins because of the spiritual backslidden and apostate state of the nation of Israel. For us today, the altar of the Lord is no longer physical but in our heart. It is when we do first things first, beginning with repairing the altar of the Lord in our hearts through confession and repentance, that we can expect God to answer our prayers. Also, after confession and repentance, when we pray, instead of the physical fire that fell upon the altar when Elijah prayed, the fire of the Holy Spirit would fall afresh upon us and sanctify us - body, soul and spirit. Lastly, Elijah prayed again and what followed was great outpouring of rain. In our own case, after we have been sanctified by the fire of the Holy Spirit, we should pray again for the great outpouring of the latter rain of the Holy Spirit. We must travail in prayer like Elijah did and never give up until the outpouring comes resulting in great revival.

QUESTION

Have you repaired the altar of your heart and, or the family altar that lies in ruins? PRAYER

I confess and repent of my sins that have laid Your altar in my heart and family in ruins and ask for the release of Your holy fire and the latter rain of Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus name, Amen.
