SEEING IT TO THE END
Main Text: 2 Kings 2: 10 -‘‘Thou hast asked a hard thing, never the less, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee but if not, it shall not be so’’.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 – Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof; and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Elisha asked for a double portion of anointing from his master Elijah, when he will leave him. The master regarded the request as an enormous one but gave the price Elisha has to pay to receive the prize. The lesson to learn here is that every prize has a price and whatever we price highly will locate us if we preserve to the end. Elisha was spiritually alert and patient and stayed with Elijah diligently till Elijah was taken from him and he received the prize – double portion of his master’s anointing.
Elijah was saying to Elisha in the main text that if he strides to the end by finishing what he started years back, he will get the result of his work. Most people ask for things and are not willing to do what is required to get the request.
We must be able to endure hard work, wait longer for results than we expect, endure loneliness, betrayal and many other unpleasant things if need be. Our Lord Jesus as our example endured all such hardships before He could complete Gods will for His life and we should follow His example.
Take a decision today brother that by God’s grace, you will finish what you started to get prize. It may be keeping a church commitment, attending Bible Study etc. Get it to the end and you get the prize; waiting for you at the finish line.
If you respect your testimony, you will wait for it, despite all odds. Resist discouragement, avoid stupid haste, submission or quitting and wait till your change comes for our God cannot lie.
YOUR TESTIMONY IS NEARER THAN YOU THINK
