Elisha knew he was soon to inherit the ministry of Elijah the prophet. He was not sure when the day would come but he knew the time was soon. He decided to ask boldly for more than most would imagine. Most people knew of the amazing miracles that God had worked through Elijah and that would have been bold to ask for that same anointing, yet Elisha took it one step further; he asked for a double portion of the blessing. His trainer Elijah granted his request, provided that Elisha witnessed God taking him up to heaven. Once Elisha understood the terms, he was unwilling to leave his side until his "Jedi Master" was escorted to heaven in a chariot of fire.  He got the double blessing!  Do we dare invite God to work in our lives with this kind of boldness?
