Leadership Promises - When The Real Leader Speaks

"Then Elijah said to all the people, 'Come near to me.' So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down." 1 Kings 18:30.

When Elijah spoke, people jumped. But most amazing of all, by the end of the day after all the theatrics, Elijah turned his face toward heaven and cried, "Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again" (1 Kings 18:37) - and God did.

How did the prophet gain the ear of everyone who heard his voice? We can discern a number of reasons:
  • His Courage: He was willing to stand-alone for God.
  • His Conviction: He had a passion for what he believed.
  • His Character: He was honest and forthright with everyone.
  • His Connection: He magnetically drew the people to himself and to God.
  • His Credibility: He eventually gained the people's ear because he got the results he wanted.
