Not by my mind or power but by the Holy Spirit, its going to be a year of double portion according to 2 Kings: 2. 9. And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I am taken from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. It will come pass as long as we believe in it. From a dream many years ago to the fulfilment of a dream, in between it involves character building.
God will test us before the coming of our blessings, in order for us to develop our character. Nonetheless, God will only test us in the areas He has trained us after He has trained us. Elisha seeked to have double portion of your Holy Spirit instead of material things and Elisha had double portion of miracles of sains and wonders.
Let our vision point upwards and let your blessings rains down from an open heaven. Blessings and revival comes in waves and when it pours it will not stop. It is important that we have a good character to receive God’s blessings. Luke: 5. 5. And Simon answered and said, Master, we toiled all night, and took nothing: but at thy word I will let down the nets. 6. And when they had done this, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their nets were breaking; 7. and they beckoned unto their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. God blessed us with double portion in order to bless us and to bless others with the 2nd portion.
John: 21. 3. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also come with thee. They went forth, and entered into the boat; and that night they took nothing. 4. But when day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach: yet the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5. Jesus therefore saith unto them, Children, have ye aught to eat? They answered him, No. 6. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. Peter then acknowledge that he is a sinner and fell down on his knees is awe of God’s workings.
A man’s ministry ends when he defeat the prophets of Baal on the mount. Elijah’s ministry was cut short as he has lost faith in God and the gloomy circumstances he went through. 1 Kings: 19. 4. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper-tree: and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, It is enough; now, O Jehovah, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. 5. And he lay down and slept under a juniper-tree; and, behold, an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. 6. And he looked, and, behold, there was at his head a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. 7. And the angel of Jehovah came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for thee. 8. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God. 9. And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of Jehovah came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah? 10. And he said, I have been very jealous for Jehovah, the God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword: and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. 1 Kings: 19. 18. Yet will I leave [me] seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
