What spiritual advantage do you have?
2 Kings 2:15 AMP: When the sons of the prophets who were [watching] opposite at Jericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” And they came to meet him and bowed down to the ground before him [in respect].
My dear friend in Christ, many people are doing everything humanly possible to secure the respect of men but they are not getting it even after paying a heavy price. Some have deliberately refused to stop chasing after money and fame using their own intelligence and other human suggestions. Unknown to them that what commands real results in this world are unseen or rather spiritual things.
Elisha was a nobody before he met Elijah. No one took him in high regard. Even when he was a servant to Elijah, that didn’t change anything as far as men’s perceptions are concerned. However, everything changed the moment he requested for a double portion of Elijah’s spirit and he got it. At that point, all the other prophets perhaps even those who started the prophetic ministry before him began to respect him.
Child of God, you must stop all the rat race and chase of the mundane things of this world and focus on spiritual things. You only command strange results with spiritual gifts. All the things you seek after will naturally look for you once you can secure your spiritual gifts which will now become your advantage. Things that were hitherto difficult will suddenly become easy. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I will focus on the spiritual gifts.
- Precious Holy Spirit, help me to remove my attention from the mundane things of this world and focus on the spiritual gifts you have for me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
2 Kings 2:1-15
