This is what the Bible declares in 2 Kings 2:13-14; He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. *Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, where is the Lord God of Elijah? And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over.”
Friend, it takes the mantle of the anointing to fall upon you to see signs and wonders in your life. There is a level higher than where you are. Elisha had an anointing when he was serving Elijah but he needed a new level of the anointing as a successor.
He received a double anointing. He did not settle for mediocrity. Elisha put a demand on the anointing upon Elijah. When you rest you rust. The devil is a consistent character he came to kill, steal and destroy – John 10:10. If we are to overcome him on all fronts, we have to be consistent in the Kingdom business, in prayer and fasting.
Remember, consistence is one of the secrets of the anointing. For you to win in life, you got to be consistent.
The world is asking where is the God of Elijah who answers by fire? Where is the God of Elijah who answers prayer?
Friends, the most powerful prayer is the prayer that is answered.
Similarly, it takes the anointing to see great results in prayer.
“…and when Elisha had struck that water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over.”
The mantle/anointing and prayer will enable you to cross over to the other side. It doesn’t matter what barrier or hindrance is before you.
When you pray to God and also receive the anointing, the God of Elijah will make away for you. Where seems to be no way.
- Lord, dispatch your angles to roll away every stumbling block to my promotion, advancement and elevation.
- I receive the mandate and mantle to put to flight every enemy of my breakthroughs, in the name of Jesus Christ.
