We have all had moments in our lives when something that we held dear to us, has been taken away. But the good news is that God is a God of restoration. Restoration may not come in the form of what we had in our minds, but God will ALWAYS bring restoration to us. As we continue our series, "Grandma Portion", Pastor Calvin shows us how God was able to work through Elisha, restore a life, and make all things new again.
2 Kings 4:8-44
Pastor Calvin teaches us how Elisha was able to walk in the double portion that was left to him by Elijah. Elisha saw Elijah taken up into heaven in a whirlwind and the very same mantle that Elijah carried, now rested upon Elisha. The double portion was now his. He could walk in favor of the Lord and know that "those that blessed him would be blessed and those that cursed him would be cursed". As we enter into our new teaching series entitled, 'Grandma Portion, we are reminded that God wants us to have a "double portion" or "grandma portion" of his spirit, not once we die and go to heaven, but NOW!
2 Kings 2:15, 19-25; 4:1-7
