Why You Must Build A Culture That Looks Again

This post is a follow-up to the blog, TWO WAYS YOU CAN BE CERTAIN SOMETHING GOOD IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. I encourage you to review that post here. But, also recognize that Elijah’s story has even more to reveal.


Scripture is loaded with the truth regarding how God speaks regarding what we hear. He commands us in the last book of the Bible to be sure and keep an ear in tune with the Spirit so that we may listen to God’s voice. Throughout a broader context of the New Testament, we are reminded that “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Likewise, we can not walk by sight, but we must walk by faith. So, we settle upon Hebrew 11’s foundation that faith is the evidence of things not seen. Why? Because faith starts with what you hear.


Do you hear something that you don’t see? Then, you are operating in faith.


I believe that God is starting a revival and an awakening in our nation and beyond! I realize, right now, we may not see it in its full glory. But we are in the stages of God repairing the altars. People are starting to review their relationships with God. They are beginning to give what is meaningful. They are beginning to allow God to remove the coincidence from their lives. And in return, God is setting the stage for something good to happen!


That is why you must build a culture that looks again. Allow me to explain…


Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” -1 Kings 18:41


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.” -1 Kings 18:43


Again, I ask, have you ever heard something that you didn’t see?


Maybe you’ve heard you're going to be free… but you don’t see it.

Maybe you’ve heard you’re going to be healed… but right now, you don’t see it.

Maybe you’ve heard you’re going to be restored and reconciled… but right now, you don’t see it.


This reality is why you have to build a culture within your life, family, and relationships that says LOOK AGAIN!


Seven times Elijah told his servant to look again. Seven times! And God is looking for someone, somewhere, that will build a “look again culture.” So many times, we give up too soon, and we MISS it. If you can hear it, you can see it...in due time.


You have to be willing to put something meaningful on the altar, allowing God to remove the opportunity for coincidence simultaneously. Then allow God to speak to you. The result: something good is going to happen in your life!


Be willing to hear and obey. Perhaps, even allowing time to pass. But, all along the way, keep your eyes on the horizon. If you hear the rain, then rain is coming.


Keep looking!


Don’t give up when it gets difficult or when frustration occurs because you will hear God long before seeing His movement.


Keep looking!


And one day, you will not only hear the sound of rain, but you will see the ground getting wet. Something good WILL happen!
