October 27, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – PASSING THE TEST OF SERVICE AS A DANIEL – 2 Kings 2:1-15
Elisha had faithfully served Elijah for twenty good years by pouring water on his hand. When what he waited for was now within his sight, he still had to pass the final test. Elijah told him, “I’m going somewhere, wait here.” He refused and said, “The Lord your God do so to me if I stay”, and he followed Elijah. They got somewhere else, and Elijah told him to stay behind but he refused again. Finally, Elijah said, “Now, ask what you want. If you see me while I go, you will get it.”; and Elisha set his face on Elijah. When the chariot of fire parted, the fabric of eternity burst into time to take Elijah up.
That chariot parted Elijah and Elisha, and Elisha said, “My father I see you.” Then Elijah dropped the mantle and Elisha picked the mantle of Elijah. At that point, he passed his test. The last miracle of Elijah became his first miracle. He parted the river Jordan, crossed it, and the sons of the prophet came to bow. But can you imagine what he went through? The son of a wealthy man pouring water on the hand of a rugged prophet whose house address he does not know – that was his test.
Some people may come to discourage you when you are going through divine processing. As soon as you get on the right road, you will see all kinds of devils come out to break your focus; they will try to weaken your determination and get you to fail the divine test. Don’t allow it!
PRAYER: Lord, help me to pass Your test that will qualify me for the next level anointing in Jesus’ name.
