1Kings 18:42-44

…And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.” Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’”

To win a case in the courtroom, there must be a presentation of an evidence. While Elijah was praying, he was looking for a physical evidence to back up his expectation of rain (the small cloud like a man’s hand). Under the new covenant, we do not look for physical evidences to back up what we are expecting, but the word of God is our evidence (see Hebrews 11:1).

Not seeing does not mean it does not exist (see John 20:29). Faith is the evidence and the title deed that you require. It is important to know that after praying, the enemy wants to destroy your evidence by stealing the word from your heart, such that you will have no case. The good news is, you have a responsibility to guard your evidence. Hebrews 10:23 confirms this, it says “hold fast to your confession…”

Beloved, do not run a relationship or business without an evidence from God’s word. Locate the evidence that pertains to you in the Bible. Notice, Jesus’ life and ministry while on earth was simply in accordance with the evidence in the written word. He said “Behold, I have come, in the volume of the book it is written of Me, to do Your will, O God” (Hebrews10:7). There are specific things written of you, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into it, that is one of his jobs (see John 16:13).

Backed up with an evidence from God’s word, your search for a job, spouse, your desire to live in health, your yearning for financial expansion becomes fruitful. Always remember, do not appear in court without your evidence. Elijah could not start running faster than the chariot until he saw the evidence of God’s word. In like manner, speed in your result rate is guaranteed as you run with your evidence.

Prayer:
From today, I will not embark on any project without an evidence from God’s word. All my actions will be in accordance with God’s plan and purpose for my life.

Mediation:
John 20:29
