In 1 Kings 17, we find the story of one of the greatest prophets of Israel, the prophet Elijah. This is the first time we read of Elijah in the Bible. When he shows up in this chapter, he’s a fully formed prophet. We’ve no idea what went on in his training. We’ve no idea of his background. All we know is that when he appears before King Ahab, he’s fully formed, fully mature, and he had the authority to open and to shut the heavens and the authority to call fire down from heaven. And you’ve got to know that when a man has the authority to do things like that, that he has been prepared for such an hour. This is the Year of the Prepared. If you’d prepare yourself now and come into fullness, you’ll see the Glory of God manifesting in your life.
