And The Brook Dried Up, Part 2of2, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


1Kings 17:1-7, “6 The ravens brought him bread in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook, 7, “And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land”.

In the midst of the drought, God provided for Elijah and I believe Elijah may have been content and comfortable with God’s provision, however after a while the brook dried up. While the means stopped, the provision by other means did not. Read the rest of this entry »

And The Brook Dried Up, Part 1of2, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


1Kings 17:1-7, “6 The ravens brought him bread in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook, 7, “And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land”.

It is often easy to talk about God’s provision, our common king size problem is the aspect of waiting. God’s strategy and time table is different from ours. We know this for sure from Isaiah 55:8&9, “for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my way, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways“. When you think that everything is out of control, He is in control, nothing escapes Him. Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in His time”. We need to understand that it’s His time that counts and not ours. Read the rest of this entry »

Numbers 13:1-33, “30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it”

The bible says that as a man thinks in his heart so is he. Many times we speak what we see. What we see indeed can be a fact but believers are not called to live by facts but by faith. In our story, the fact is, there were giants in the land of Canaan, however the truth was, God had given them the land regardless of the facts. Read the rest of this entry »

I Am Not Where I Was, Part 2of2, Evans Olang

Matthew 9:20-22, “And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment”

As we looked at the woman with the issue of blood in Part 1, we could glean some principles from her story and apply it to our lives as we start a New Year.

1. Be a Jesus seeker: This woman in the midst of her situation became a Jesus seeker. She made it upon herself to find Jesus. Mathew 9:20, “And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment”. She decided to make a quick move before the opportunity passed her by. Read the rest of this entry »

While many look forward to the New Year, a number make resolutions for the New Year only to fail early due to human efforts. Instead of making resolutions, I prefer making declarations for the New Year. I commit these declarations to God knowing they are possible through Him. Read the rest of this entry »

Phi 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing but by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your request be known to God”

It is vital that we pray earnestly, effectively, constantly and by faith. I am talking about beyond our usual prayers, prayers that causes heaven to stop and listen. The prayers that sends hell into chaos. Daniel made these kind of prayers and what did Daniel have that we don’t have at our disposal? If there is one mission the enemy has, it is to stop believers from praying and I think he has succeeded in many levels.
