"Thou Hast Asked a Hard Thing"

Today I resolve: "The supernatural life for me" - supernatural in purpose, guidance, provision and power.

He who would follow Elijah beyond Jordan must, shall, return over Jordan, alone.

We may think of staying where we are. Or we can follow to one place or another to which some others have already attained. Jordan, however, is the place these others can only look at from a distance. These may KNOW certain things by the Spirit, but they shall see the DOINGS of him who follows and returns back, alone, over Jordan.

Be one who has moved beyond supernatural KNOWING into supernatural DOING.

The requirement is more than to put yourself into a "sink or swim" situation. Elisha did more than that. He followed Elijah to the place where he had no option but to require the supernatural, alone, in order to get back over Jordan.

Two of them went over Jordan - only ONE of them came back.

Elisha followed to the point where he knew he had to get it in order to return back.

"There is that maketh himself poor, and yet hath GREAT riches"

"And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting."
