Living in the Current Anointing of God

In reading through the story of Elisha I am struck by the ease with which Elisha moves in each situation. The miraculous pours from him. He has not looked back since he struck the Jordan River with Elijah’s cloak.

There is almost the mundane situation of having the stew taste funny and he knew what to do. Then there is the widow and the oil that supplied money for the debt she owed. It is as “every day” as an ax head that gets lost, or the very surreal event of the enemy’s general coming for a visit.

Elisha isn’t intimidated. He doesn’t show favoritism. He hears from God and moves as God wants him to move.

Elisha wasn’t intimidated by Naaman, an enemy of Israel. He doesn’t refuse Naaman because he is the “enemy.” He hears God and lives to OBEY.

My heart is challenged. This week has been a week of prayer as I’ve examined this life of Elisha all over again.
