I was reading about the time when God told the prophet Elijah to anoint Elisha to follow in his same calling. The bible says Elijah placed his mantle upon Elisha. As soon as I read that verse of scripture, the Lord began to speak to me about picking up our mantle. Many of us have dropped our mantle and are not doing what the Lord has called us to do.
Your mantle is your outer cloak. It’s the anointing the Lord has placed upon you. Your mantle is the power of God. There’s no need to be afraid of your mantle. God has selected you and called you for a specific purpose.
It’s time to pick up your mantle and walk in the authority and power of the Most High God. Let your response today be like that of Elisha. He kissed his parents, sacrificed unto God and ran after Elijah to be his understudy. Elisha accepted the calling which was placed upon him. He ran after his calling and went on to do great exploits for the kingdom of heaven.
Your mantle is whatever God has called you to. Writing, singing, dancing, musician, preacher, teacher, artist, poetic, parent, student, evangelist, intercessor, counselor, prophet, even president, pick up your mantle.
