There are some strange and wonderful stories about the prophet Elijah. Here is one example from 2 Kings.

“Elijah answered the captain, “If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed the captain and his men” (2 Kings 1:10, NIV).

Elijah’s confidence about his identity as a man of God is immediately proven true.

There are times when I seek this confidence, what John Wesley might describe as assurance.

In what ways are you confident and assured of your faith?
