Why Elevation Worship’s Upcoming Album May Help Usher in a New Season of Revival

“And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel, and he threw himself down on the ground and put his face between his knees. And he said to his servant, ‘Go up now, and look toward the sea.’ And he went up and looked and said, ‘There is nothing.’ And he said, ‘Go again,’ seven times. On the seventh time, he said, ‘A small cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising out of the sea.’ And he said, ‘Go up and say to Ahab, “Mount your chariot and get down, so that the rain does not stop you.”‘ In the meantime, the sky turned black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode and went to Jezreel” (1 Kings 18:42-45).

We believe revival is rising. We see our faith being stretched. We feel our hope being restored. Echoing this spirit of Elijah, it is the prayer of Elevation Worship, with the release of our new live album, There Is a Cloud, that these songs will usher in a new season of revival in our hearts, in our churches and in our world.

But one of the most difficult places to live is between what God has done in the past and what you’re praying for God to do in the future. It’s the place that’s often referred to as the desert—the place of the dry spell and the drought. Maybe you’re there now.

When we find ourselves in this place, our eyes instinctively go to what we don’t have and what seems to be missing. Our focus goes to our frustration instead of His faithfulness.

It doesn’t have to be this way, though. You have a choice in every season, even seasons of drought. You get to choose your perspective.

You get to decide if you will complain about what’s missing or call out to God to provide what’s needed.

You get to decide if you will see the dry ground as a cause for complaint or as the catalyst for crying out to God in complete dependence.

You get to decide if you will stare at the parched, dry ground or fix your eyes toward the skies heavy with blessing.

A season of drought can actually drive you to greater devotion. It can bring you to a place of asking God to “do it again.” To plead with God to come through in the ways that only he can. But, it doesn’t happen naturally. It’s a choice—and the choice is yours.

And we believe the new songs on this new album will fuel your faith and restore your hope as we draw closer to the heart of Christ. Find There Is a Cloud on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and wherever music is streamed. Find out more at elevationworship.com.
