Elijah said to King Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!” So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees.

Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.” Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. Finally, the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.”

Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’”  And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for his home in Jezreel. 

Then the power of God came upon Elijah giving him supernatural strength. He tucked his cloak into his belt and outran Ahab’s chariot back to Jezreel.
