A lot of us had attended several conferences and heard several sermons and messages on divers scriptural messages. A lot of us had been informed of the mind of God for our.
We had received several visions and revelations of what the Lord wanted us to do for Him. BUT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, WHEN THE LORD HAD PRESENTED BEFORE US THE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE EMPOWERED WITH HIS ANOINTING TO EXECUTE THE DIVINE VISIONS AND IDEAS, WE HAD BEEN NEGLIGENT. WE HAD CARED LESS ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITIES.
We had neglected to go extra-miles in hungering and thirsting for Empowerment.
WHEN OTHERS ARE FASTING YOU WERE FEASTING. WHEN OTHERS WERE PRAYING, YOU WERE PLAYING, AND YOU WANT TO POSSESS THE POWERS TO CROSS OVER THE JORDAN RIVER ON DRY GROUND.
YOU WANT TO DO EXTRA-ORDINARY THINGS IN MINISTRY.
YOU WANT TO BE AN AGENT OF HEALING THE LAND WITH YOUR DRAMA, MUSIC, TEACHINGS AND MINISTRY?
Even the Young Prophets in Jericho who were close to the point of Transference of Power, could still not hunger for it, as the woman with the issue of blood who PURPOSED in her heart and grabbed the power from behind of Jesus. NO HUNGER FOR POWER. NO THIRST FOR ANOINTING. They enjoy their Comfort Zone. No Zeal to go Extra-Mile.
SOME CHRISTIANS CAN NOT FAST AND PRAY DAILY FOR MORE THAN THREE DAYS….BUT THEY WANT TO DO MIGHTY EXPLOITS.
When some people heard of Marathon Fasting and Prayers of Three Days or Seven Days, they ran away, but they want to pull down some strongholds…THEY WANT TO TAKE THE KINGDOM BY FORCE!
The Knowledge is there in the Word of God, BUT NO HUNGER FOR THE POWER AND ANOINTING TO PROSECUTE DIVINE AGENDAS.
No Power to Tarry Longer in His Presence. But we can Tarry for Hours Browsing the Net and chatting with Followers and Friends.
Elisha had all the knowledge of what all the Young Prophets in Gilgal, Bethel and Jericho had.
But ELISHA HAD MORE THAN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MIND OF GOD. HE HAD ALSO THE MANTLE IN HIS HAND.
HE GOT THE POWER AND ANOINTING. AND THAT WAS WHAT HE HAD ABOVE THEM.
Acts 1:8 KJV
 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
1.May I receive strength to Hunger and Thirst for the Power and Anointing to fulfill Your Purpose and Visions for my Life.”
2. May You help me to discern every Opportunity for Spiritual Empowerment
