Spiritual Coffee: Answer to prayer, was seen in a tiny cloud!



1 Kings 18:44
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.’”


I love to pray, and I love to see when my prayers are answered ! Just as Elijah, prayed seven times, for rain, after a three year drought. There are some prayers, I persistently take to our Heavenly Father.

Praying persistently, does not mean that God did not hear our prayers, the first time! But it is a way to build our faith in Christ. Praying till we see the hands' of God move!

In the bible, Elijah is seen praying not once, twice, or even just three times! But Elijah prayed seven times, for the rain to come. In a glimpse of hope. Elijah servant, sees a tiny cloud, that is the size of a man's hand! That cloud was more that enough of a confirmation, for Elijah; to know that God had answered his prayers.

Fast forward over to the new testament...

We see Jesus, praying to the Father. Note this verse..

Matthew 26:36-45
36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and "pray"over there.”

39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

42 Again, a "second time", He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”

44 So He left them, went away again, and prayed the "third time", saying the "same words"

Christ prayed until, He received His answer. Note this verse...

Mathews 26:45 ....Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? "Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

God is always faithful to answer our prayers. He will always answer us on His timing. Whatever you have been praying about, be patient, and pray till God answers you.

The bible states in Matthew 7:7 to...
[ Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking ] “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

So continue to seek God for the answers, to your prayers! Never stop praying!

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. Lord, I wait patiently on You, to answer the petitions of my heart.

Lord, thank You for always hearing my prayers, and answering them according to 1 john 5:14. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.

Have a beautiful day in Christ, Love Sis Rashida.

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
