What is holding you back from going forward? Is it fear? Is it your current job? What is it that is keeping you away from moving closer to Him? All of us has a mandate from God but it’s up to us to carry it out.
In 1 Kings 19 we read that Elijah had cast his mantle upon Elisha as he passed by him.
Elisha had two choices whenever that happened he could have:
1. Ignored Elijah
2. obeyed and followed
” So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen in front of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and cast his cloak upon him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, “Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?”21 And he returned from following him and took the yoke of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the yokes of the oxen and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and went after Elijah and assisted him.”
“To step forward in your destiny,You have to step away from your security”
