DEVO 09.14.22


“When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken from you." And Elisha said, "Please let there be a double portion of your spirit on me."”

(‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬)


- This portion of scripture is from right before Elijah is taken up in a chariot of fire.

- Elijah, the great prophet, said to Elisha, "Ask what I shall do for you?

- Elisha has an option. Ask Big or ask small!

- Ask for something easy or something difficult.

- And Elisha went for it!

- He asked as big as he could ask!

- He asked for something that he had never seen before.

- He asked for MORE!

- He asked for Double!

- And Elijah said, “You have asked a difficult thing,”

- And the amazing thing is that he got what he asked for.

- He asked for more and he received more!

- He took part in twice as many miracles as Elijah.

- Elijah took part in 14 recorded miracles and Elisha saw 28.

- Do you know that is the same thing that Jesus says to you today?

- Today, Jesus says to you, “what do you want me to do for you?”

- In Matthew 7:8, Jesus says “For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

- So what is your “Big Ask”?

- Or have you given up on asking God for anything big and simply settled for what you can pull off on your own?

- Have you settled for the ordinary instead of the extraordinary?

- Today, take a look at your requests.

- Philippians 4:6 says, “In every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

- “Present your request!”

- Make it known!

- James 4:2 says, “You do not have because you do not ask God.”

- ‭‭So, what are you missing out on simply because you haven’t asked?

- It’s time to dust off those God given dreams that you set on a shelf years ago.

- It time to dig up the miracle request that you buried in the ground years ago because you decided that it was to big for God.

- We need the boldness of Elisha, to ask BIG.

- Get your passion back!

- Stir your faith up, once again!

- Today, ask “BIG ASK” prayers.

- What do you have to lose?

- 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.””

- ‭‭Have a great Wednesday!
