Lazaroo – Saturday, March 19, 2011

Mar 19, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, watching… learning…

“Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?’ ‘Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,’ Elisha replied.”
(2 Kings 2:9)

So here’s Elijah – one of the greatest prophets of all time –

offering to do one more thing for his understudy
before You take him to heaven.


His last day on earth
and he’s thinking of somebody else.

(Maybe he’s wise enough to know that if it’s your last day on earth
that’s what you’d better be thinking about!)

So what does his understudy do?

I might guess the right thing to do is say something like…

“You’ve already done more than enough for me, Elijah.
This is your day.”


Instead, his understudy says…

“I want to be twice the prophet you were.”

But here’s the thing that stuns me, Jesus:

You gave it to him.

Psalms 18:35; Psalms 27:1-3; Daniel 10:12; Matthew 20:20-27; Mark 9:33-35; Ephesians 4:1-2; Philippians 4:11-13; James 4:6; James 4:10; 1 Peter 5:5-8

What is Lazaroo?

    Yes … what a marvelous response from Elisha .. Wanting even more then was given to Elijah. To be able to do “even’ more for God. Apparently Elijah did a wonderful job with his understudy! God blessed them both.

    One thing is for sure, if Elisha’s heart wasn’t in the right place he would have never recieved it. I too am stunned at the things given me by the Lord. One thing I learned long ago, when I use them for His kingdom’s sake those gifts continue to come (materially speaking). When I don’t use the spiritual gifts I’ve been given, the Holy Spirit nudges me to “fan into flame” those gifts. I am so glad that we serve a God who gives us the desires of our hearts when we stand in His will ! In 1 Cor 14:1 the Apostle Paul encourages us to “eagerly desire spiritual gifts”. Oh that we would eagerly desire spiritual gifts for the building up of the church and see lost souls come to Christ for the ” the fields are white unto harvest”. Praise, Glory and Honor to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords !!
