New life in Christ demands great perseverance which results in blessings. Perseverance has its pains which may cause faith imbalance but being focused on your goals as an individual or corporately has a sweeter ending.
When Elisha asked for double portion of Elijah’s spirit, it sounded abnormal, but he was focused. He persevered through thick and thin and finally got it. He became a hero and an inheritor of blessings.
Double portion of blessings belong to us and so we must desire them and work towards listening and doing in pursuit of our goal.
The absence of Elijah was not felt because Elisha received the double portion and faithfully continued with the ministry. What blessings do you desire from God?
