Seeds of Destiny 19 August 2019 – Desire: The Secret of Power With God, written by Pastor Paul Enenche
TODAY’S TOPIC: DESIRE – THE SECRET OF POWER WITH GOD
When a man is passionate for God, it is impossible for God to look away.
SCRIPTURE: And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the cart of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took a hold of his own clothes, and took them in two pieces. He took up the mantle of Elijah as well, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan; 2 Kings 2: 12-13
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When a man is passionate for God, it is impossible for God to look away.
Desire in this context is a strong feeling that you want something. Desire for God, meaning, longing and craving for God. It is confirmed that desire for God gives a man the ability to secure the attention of God. When a man is passionate for God, it is impossible for God to look away (Matthew 5: 6).

Please take note of the following:
i. There can be no spiritual fire without desire
ii. What you do not desire, you do not deserve.
iii. Your destiny is at the mercy of your desire.
iv. What is your interest?
v. No desire, no drive; and no drive, no change.
Elisha was a typical example of those who contacted power by desire. He desired the double portion of the anointing that was on Elijah, even though Elijah was seemingly reluctant to leave anything behind for him (2 Kings 2: 9). Elijah gave Elisha a tough condition – he said, ‘If you see me when I am taken, the mantle will be yours’ (2 Kings 2:10, Paraphrased). And Elisha saw him, and cried out, ‘My father! My father! The cart of Israel and the horsemen thereof; I see you! ‘ (2 Kings 2:12 Paraphrased). But before he received the mantle, he did something amazing: he took hold of his own cloth, and tore it into two pieces. And immediately, something happened by the power of that desperate act: the original mantle dropped. The Bible says, He took up the mantle of Elijah that fell. (2 Kings 9:13)
Elijah did not drop the mantle; the mantle fell. He was going with it and it fell. What made it to fall? Longed for!
The desire in your heart can magnetise the anointing of God in your direction.
Remember this: When a man is passionate for God, it is impossible for God to look away.
1. Deepen your passion for God at the place of prayer, worship and in the Word of God.
2. Make your number one priority in life.
