Today I continue my advice for those that are seeking God’s will for their lives yet they have not received a positive sense of direction.
In II Kings 3:11, Elisha is described as the one, “…Which poured water on the hands of Elijah”.
When we think of Elisha, we generally think of a great prophet, a mighty man of God, a giant of the faith. It is easy to forget that Elisha started out as nothing more than a servant to Elijah; pouring water over Elijah’s hands and serving him in day-to-day banalities. But his posture of servant hood put him in a position to receive a mantle.
When I started working with Evangelist Bonnke, it was not as a co-evangelist; it was as a personal assistant. I had no ulterior motive other than to serve the man of God. But it was in serving his vision that I first saw the massive crowds of people being saved, healed and filled with the Holy Spirit. It was in seemingly mundane moments that I was catching a passion for evangelism, a hunger to see souls saved and a desire to preach the Gospel. It was then that I saw my possibilities in God. My posture as a servant positioned me to catch a mantle.
If you don’t know what God’s will is for your life, then I would challenge you to find someone else who you sense is doing God’s will, and begin to serve them and their vision as if it were your own. As you sow into their calling, you will reap a calling of your own. You will begin to discover that as you postured yourself as a servant, you were actually positioning yourself to catch a mantle; God’s calling for your life.
