Facing Transition with Expectancy!

8 10 2013

ElishaWe are in a series: A Life like Elisha. His life teaches us many lessons. The first was how to respond to new assignment when they come (September 28, responding to New Assignments), the second was how to have undivided commitment and today we see how to embrace transition with expectation!

When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?” “Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” Elisha replied. “You have asked a difficult thing,” Elijah said, “yet if you see me when I am taken from you, it will be yours–otherwise, it will not.”

2Ki 2:9-10

Standing at the Jordan Elijah asked, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?” Elijah kept Elisha focused on the future, if you had been asked by Elijah would2 leaves you have asked for?

Elisha spoke from his heart asking for a double portion of Elijah’s prophetic gift and as he stood firm, watching to the end, his wish was fulfilled not by Elijah, but by the Lord!

He embraced transition with expectancy and we need to do the same!

Blessings and Complete Joy,
