1 Kings 19

Elijah went up to Elisha and threw his cloak around him. 1 Kings 19:19

Elisha burned the plowing equipment. Then he set out to follow and become Elijah’s attendant. 1 Kings 19:21

Lord, when you throw the cloak of your Holy Spirit upon us, we must stop, turn, and follow you. Today, give me the strength to burn my equipment and set out to follow you. May I prove myself to be a worthy attendant.


The Beatitudes contain the “dynamite” of the Holy Spirit. They “explode” when the circumstances of our lives cause them to do so. – Oswald Chambers
