II Kings 2:9 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.
Elisha has served Elijah. He has been there in the ministry and helping him personally. When Elijah lets Elisha know that he is leaving he gives Elisha the chance to ask for something. Elisha asks for double portion of Elijah’s spirit. He wanted to be like the man of God. That is what I want to do!
I want God to use me. I know that I have failed in so many ways but I still hunger to be used of Him. I want my life to count. I want to see God do great things. I know you do also.
Let’s pray that God will show His power in and through us!
