Persistence Pays

Read 1 Kings 22:51 through 2 Kings 2:25; Luke 21:1–24

Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here; the Lord has sent me to the Jordan.” And he replied, “As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you” (2 Kings 2:6).

Elisha, the prophet Elijah’s understudy, had learned persistence. Although Elijah asked him three times to remain behind, Elisha refused. He knew Elijah was going to heaven that day, and he wanted to be with his mentor until the last moment.

If Elisha had turned back when Elijah told him to, he would have missed the double portion of Elijah’s spirit, and might not have performed as many miracles. Naaman’s leprosy might not have been healed (2 Kings 5:1–18), the Shunammite’s son might not have been restored (2 Kings 4:18–37), and the widow’s oil might not have multiplied to pay her debt (2 Kings 4:1–7).

Those who want more of God’s blessings must push beyond the convenient. Sometimes they must press through great difficulties to obtain what they seek.

Challenge for Today: Remember Elisha, and press forward until you receive God’s blessing.

Quicklook: 2 Kings 2:6–15
