2 And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.

3 And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.

4 And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho.

5 And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.

6 And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I pray thee, here; for the LORD hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on.

7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan.

8 And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.

9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

10 And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.

11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;

14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.

15 And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

MESSAGE:

The Holy Spirit is the custodian of gifts and He gives to whomsoever He wills. Baptism in the Holy Spirit comes along with gifts (Acts 10:45-46). Spiritual gifts are important parts of the Christian life. God has provided each believer with spiritual gifts for the purpose of strengthening the body of believers and glorifying Him (Ephesians 4:7-8). It is the responsibility of each of us to discover our gifts so that we can become an asset to the body of Christ (1 Timothy 1:6).

Elisha is an example of a young man that discovered his gift and used it to bless the body of believers. How? Reading through the text above, we discovered that he was very committed to the work of God and the servant of God. He grew above distractions around him and in his walk with God. Also. He was highly observant; he witnessed how his master parted Jordan.

And, He was a man of vision and was very conscious of his need. Also, he was ready to pay the price for the hard thing he asked for. He was very sensitive to the Spirit of God.

A man of prayer, he was not a profane person like Esau. He was a man of faith and was bold as well as fearless. He believed in the God of Elijah, did what his master did in parting and crossing Jordan. It worked for him and he became a man of power.

Beloved, your gift, when discovered and put to use, will make you an asset to the body of Christ. God has blessed each of us with one gift or the other. Do a study on the life of Elisha and prayerfully discover your gift today. The world is waiting for your manifestation.

However, you cannot possess the gift of God if you are not born again. Surrender your life to God today. The gifts of God are meant to edify the body of believers; they are different from natural talents.

PRAYER POINTS:

MORNING

  1. Father, let every dormant gift in me be stirred up by the fire of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I shake off every distraction that is preventing my spiritual growth, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father, sensitise my spirit to discover Your gift in me, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING

  1. Father, grant me grace to pay the price of greatness, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Deliver me from profanity and frivolity, in the name of Jesus.
  3. God has not given me the spirit of fear. I receive boldness to possess my possession, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Lord, deliver me from spiritual laziness that will not allow me to discover my gift, in the name of Jesus.
