IV. SIMPLE APPROPRIATION
Now I want us tonight to turn to 2 Kings Chapter 2 for our studies. We continue the study of The Life of Miracles. Every believer's life is to be a life of miracles.

And then there was a prize to possess. You remember that he had the presence of his Master and he had the power for his ministry and God blessed him in a marvelous way.
Now we know that Elisha was divinely appointed; God called him but it is not enough to be divinely appointed, you must also be divinely anointed. It is not enough to be saved, you also must be surrendered. It is not enough to have the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to have you and God wants to fill you with the power of His Spirit.
