Power follows Passion!
There are 4 things that Elijah took with him up to Mount Carmel and I believe that they are the ingredients for passion and power.
He took a revelation.
You see before Elijah ever took one step up that mountain, he could already envision Israel back under the government of God, he could see that false religious order being overthrown.
He could see Baals altars torn down, and the altar of The LORD standing in it’s place,He could see the prophets of Baal slain by the sword and the one true God being praised.
Even David had a revelation before Goliath even hit the ground. Get that revelation! You need to see yourself as God sees you, You need to lift your eyes above your present circumstances and get a vision of your divine destiny.
The second thing Elijah took with him was an expectation.
He expected the fire to fall, He expected God to show up, He expected Gods power to be manifested. Expectation is the breeding ground for Manifestation. Now let’s take it to the next level.
Elijah had a desperation.
His life depended upon God answering by fire. If fire did not fall, Elijah would die on that mountain.
It was desperation that brought the woman with the issue of blood to Jesus. It was desperation that caused the leper Naaman to come to the prophet of God and dip himself seven times in the muddy Jordan.
When you get desperate, you don’t care what other people say or think or do, all that matters is: I have got to get to Jesus, and I have got to touch him for myself.
The final thing Elijah took with him was a resignation.
That means that Elijah had already predetermined in his heart and mind that he was going through with this challenge, even if he had to die on that mountain.
Many times when life gets hard, your first thought is to quit and bail out, but not in this case, he had his mind made up.
God says it is time to get out of neutral and get in gear! Don’t keep going back and forth, from hot to cold, up and down.
God says it is time to come in and shut the door behind you, It’s time to burn the bridges behind you, it is time to be sold out with that made up mind.
Tear down every other altar, every other love, every other god and let the fire of our Almighty God consume you.
