“And so it was, when they had crossed over,
that Elijah said to Elisha,
“Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?”
And Elisha said –
“Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”
2 Kings 2 : 9
The young man Elisha- could have asked for a number of things–
Elijah’s fame- his honor, or his talent and ability.
But instead he asked for- a Double Portion of the spirit Elijah had!
He could have seemed greedy to ask for twice as much!
but it actually indicated Elisha’s greatest need.
He did not let anything separate him from the “man of God.”
Weather he went to Bethel and Jerico- He stayed close to him.
You and I know the source of our Power!
It is by staying close to the Lord through a meaningful devotional life-
Daily study of His Word:
constant communication with our Lord
and fellowship with his people.
ELISHA- performed miracles –
which were deeds of mercy and kindness.
His mission was very much like that of our Savior.
A Double portion – awaits you and me – The promise of-
“the out pouring of the “Latter Rain-
as men and women of our churches unite their efforts together.
“Make Elisha’s request ours too!
WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH.
