When Elisha was separated to follow Elijah, the sons of the prophet went to stay somewhere and watched Elisha but by the time Elisha got back and said, “Where is the God of Elijah?” and took the mantle of Elijah that fell and parted the river hither and thither, they said, “The spirit of Elijah is resting upon Elisha”. He didn’t preach to them before they bowed.  The spirit did not just fall on Elisha – he qualified himself for it by following Elijah alone.
 
Among all the disciples of Jesus, John the beloved had the greatest revelation (he wrote the book of Revelations) because he was always walking in that separation. He leaned on the chest of Jesus and he was the one that Jesus told the name of the one who would betray him, even Peter did not know.
 
If you want to be elevated, then you must be separated. Too many people like the crowd; they have a ‘crowd mentality’. Sometimes God calls you to be separate from the crowd. He says: “Come apart, I want to talk to you.” People don’t allow God to separate them, so they remain small and they blame the devil. When Elisha was going to receive the anointing, he separated himself from the sons of the prophets and began to follow Elijah. He was the one pouring water on the hands of the man of God. They mocked him and laughed at him, but he was in the separation for the anointing. If you want the anointing, then you must be separated. Before John saw the book of Revelations, he was separated from people. 
 
 
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to separate and rise above the crowd mentality. I receive divine enablement to pay the price needed for elevation in Jesus’ name. Amen!
