“He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him…..”

2 Kings 2:13

The mantle of Elijah was more than just a piece of Cloth he wrapped around his shoulders. It symbolized everything the man was. It represented his sacrifice, his commitment, his faith, his love for God, his consecration and his power.

When Elisha picked up that mantle it meant: I’m stepping up. I’ll pay the price. I’ll live the life. It means from this day forward, I am who this mantle says I am. When you pick up this mantle: You are saying to God I’m committed, I am chosen by God, I’m anointed, and I’m appointed. When you pick up this mantle you are saying: I’m in the game, I’m not a spectator on the side- lines. I choose Gods side, I choose truth, I choose holiness, I choose faithfulness and obedience. You and I stand on the brink of our own Jordan. For many of us God has been speaking and we have been trying to listen to what He is calling us to do. The facts are that God is looking for men and women who will live obedient lives who will allow Him to reach others through them.

As you step out rely on the facts that you know about God to lead you in your ministry. Doing what God wants us to do will open up an entirely new future in our lives. Finding a way to allow God to use you will open up doors of opportunity that you could never imagine.

God is calling men and women in these days that will answer the call. For someone reading this devotion today that may mean laying aside what you are doing and following God by serving others in some full-time ministry. By opening yourself to do a ministry that involves serving others you will find that your future looks far different than you could imagine.
