There is only one God
(1 Kings 18:36)  At the hour of the afternoon sacrifice the prophet Elijah approached the altar and prayed, "O LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove now that you are the God of Israel and that I am your servant and have done all this at your command.
(1 Kings 18:37)  Answer me, LORD, answer me, so that this people will know that you, the LORD, are God and that you are bringing them back to yourself."
(1 Kings 18:38)  The LORD sent fire down, and it burned up the sacrifice, the wood, and the stones, scorched the earth and dried up the water in the trench.
(1 Kings 18:39)  When the people saw this, they threw themselves on the ground and exclaimed, "The LORD is God; the LORD alone is God!"

In our daily life’s we are constantly faced with challenges that pulls us away from God. It is important to remember again that it is all about God. Everything we do must be to glorify His great name.
It is also important to remember that we can only be successful if we trust Him and focus on Him.
God wants to make Him visible through you. It is in Him that you will find your strength.
In the history behind Elijah and the prophets of Baal, it is clear that God wanted Israel to see that He is the only living God. In the same way God stunned the people of Israel with His awesome power He wants to surprise the world around you with His awesome power.
Jesus came to be the light in our world. He already faced death and defeated sin. He carried the burden so that we can just glorify God. He died so that we can live. Let your life be a reflection of His great love. Anything is possible through Him.
(John 1:1)  In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(John 1:2)  From the very beginning the Word was with God.
(John 1:3)  Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him.
(John 1:4)  The Word was the source of life, and this life brought light to people.
(John 1:5)  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.

The creator of heaven and earth is your protector. He will never leave you and He will never sleep. He is God.
(Philippians 2:8)  He was humble and walked the path of obedience all the way to death--- his death on the cross.
(Philippians 2:9)  For this reason God raised him to the highest place above and gave him the name that is greater than any other name.
(Philippians 2:10)  And so, in honor of the name of Jesus all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees,
(Philippians 2:11)  and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
