“So Elijah departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him.” — 1 Kings 19: 19 —
Every one has a defining moment in life. Where they have to let go of something or change course. It is mostly a hard decision to make like; quitting your well-paid job to being a full-time preacher.
This brings the prophet Elijah to mind. When he came to name Elisha as his next successor. That was a defining moment in the life of Elisha. Elijah showed up and placed his mantle, or cloak, over his shoulders- which represents the transferring of spiritual leadership.
You may be facing a defining moment in your faith journey. It could also be work or relationship related issues. But in all these, God is asking you to trust Him by making a drastic change and walking with Him. For as long as your decision is backed by His will, it will surely push through in the end.
All you have to do is ask God for courage and faith to leave old things and move forth to new ones.
The strength of the Lord has been made available to me in these times to move forth into victory. I take hold of it as i step into my next level, Amen!!
