July 31 , 2008 - Devotional: Why Do You Ask?

"When they had crossed, 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.
'You have asked a difficult thing.' Elijah said. 'Yet if you see me when I am taken from you, it will be yours - otherwise not'."
(2 Kings 2:9-10)

WHY DO YOU ASK?

God's strength and power is not ours to give - it is God who decides, it is God who imparts. It is not asked for as the means to our end, it is given so that God may be glorified.

In the Book of Acts in the New Testament we read of Simon who practiced sorcery in the city but was amazed as the Philip the man of God was preaching the Good News and evil spirits were coming out of people, many were healed and great joy spread throughout Samaria (See Acts 8:4-25). Simon became envious of the power Philip displayed and offered money to receive it. The Apostle Peter was there as well and exclaimed, "May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money!" Acts 8:20

If God uses you, be thankful but remain humble, it's not anything you've done, it is what you will do that spreads the Good News of His love for the mankind you come in contact with.

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
