Being God's Man

And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijal said to Elisha, "Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?" Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."  2 Kings 2

We can be tempted to put more trust in the leaders God gives us than in God Himself.  History teaches that, as wonderful as these godly people are, God always has another Moses, Elijah, or David. Often the successor will come with a double portion of their predecessors's spirits.

God's purposes do not depend on us. He has limitless ways to accomplish His will. The same God who led Moses could also use Joshua. If no one were willing to serve Him, the Lord would accomplish His work own divine power.  We are not irreplaceable to the Lord. He will achieve His purposes.  The question is this:  Will we be part of God's activity, or will He find someone else?  We deceive ourselves if we think we are indispensable to God.  Service to the Lord ia an honor God bestows on us, nor a favor we do for God.
