Going on Alone

This is from The Vine website today:

Elijah and Elisha were out walking together when 'a chariot of fire… separated the two… Elijah went… into heaven. And Elisha… saw him no more… ' (2 Kings 2:11-12 NKJV). Oswald Chambers writes: 'It's not wrong to depend on your 'Elijah' as long as God gives him to you. But God doesn't intend him to stay, and although the thought causes you to say, 'I can't continue,' you must.' There are times in life when we must go on alone, and draw from God the strength to do it.

Alone at the Jordan. Here Elisha 'took up the mantle of Elijah… struck the water… the water… divided… and Elisha crossed over' (2 Kings 2:13-14 NKJV). The river Jordan represents death. When you lose someone you loved and depended on, you ask, 'How can I go on alone?' You're not alone, God is with you!
