I was reading 2 Kings 2:9 this morning. The verse reads: 9 When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?”Elisha asked, “Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” God blessed Elisha’s life. I believe it is the same reason we are experiencing blessings at Echo Church right now. I believe God is waiting to move bigger on our behalf. We just have not asked God for something big enough. You know, that thing that is so big that there is no question that God is the one who brought the blessing.
Elisha did! He had the audacity to ask. He was persistent in his pursuit. When Elijah asked his apprentice what he wanted, Elisha wasted no time acting like he was humble or that he didn’t deserve it. He got right to it. He asked for what he wanted, he asked for something that seemed outrageous. He was bold when he asked and was not of the mind set that he didn’t deserved to experience the fulness of God’s power unleashed in his life.
God is honored when we ask for the impossible from Him. The bigger it is, the better He looks when He does His thing. The only way for God to overshadow how small we are is for us to be willing to walk in the greatness He has called us to. You want to know how to put a smile on Gods face? Think big. It’s insulting to Him when we don’t. Do it, Don’t wait. Be persistent.
God has been blessing Echo Church. I’m thankful for what He is doing in the lives of our people. I know He is waiting to unleash His power on us. He wants to overshadow just how small we are. We must ask Him to do the impossible. We must be audacious in our request. Do it God.
Fill our building up one time, two times, three times, four times over. Fill it with people that need a savior, who need hope, who are searching for peace, who are desperate for a God that can heal. We are asking you to do the impossible. Do it God! Go big! Move in such a way that no one can question that it was you that made it happen.
