“And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.” — 2 Kings 2:14
Elisha found himself standing alone when he was used to being with his leader. His faith, provision, and victories were all based on the faith and actions of his leader. But one day he had to trust the God of his leader. He had to look to God for himself. This is exactly where He wants us—looking to Him for our needs and desires every day—not waiting for some special blessing to fall from someone else.
Where is the Lord God? He is right here with you…He is always with you. He said: “…I am with you always…” (Matt 28:20). Who or what will you believe, your circumstances, doubts or hearsay? I say no to these things and implore you to trust the only one Who promised to always be with you.
Regardless of what you are facing, and how alone you may feel. Look within your own spirit and know He is there and then serve Him, love Him, trust Him, worship Him, and follow Him—He will remove the loneliness and take you over your obstacles.

Reblogged this on Jesus.
This seems such basic living of faith, but when we need help do we phone or visit or text or email a person, or do we start with the One Who has all the power and love to hold us through the trouble? Sometimes I still try to go to second base before first, and that just doesn’t work…
