    Our God answereth by fire! It is curious that some roadside god will be contending with the creator of heaven and earth! Our omnipotent God showed His power and put baal to shame. Its worshipers got the treatment they deserve. Pray that God will keep showing His might in our lives to bring down the stronghold of satan and its cohorts.
