It’s well written in scripture, and I will read it as stated in one scripture: Jeremiah 32:27, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” There is agreement by most; whether it be spiritually, naturally, theoretically, or practically that there isn’t anything too hard for God. And although it maybe so that there isn’t anything too hard for God, it has been written in scripture that there are definitely some hard things asked of God. Here is how one scripture reads in 2 Kings 2:10, “And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.” We need to still be clearer here, not only is there not anything too hard for God, but the scripture makes it clear that not even the hard things are a hard challenge for God. The challenge of the hard things are at our feet, and not at the hand of God: hence my title of this post, “Made It, Yet Still Went On For If.”
When Elisha told Elijah the hard thing that he shall do for him, Elijah did not say that it shall be so Elisha if God be able to help you see me when I am taken from you, nor did Elijah say to Elisha that it shall be so if God can somehow finish the process of delivering the double portion to you in time when I am taken from you. No, but Elijah did say to Elisha that if “THOU” see me when I am taken away from thee, it shall be so unto thee, but if not, it shall not be so. The Title of my post again, “Made It, Yet Still Went On For If.” The Hard thing is clearly on you and me. When we make it to a place that God has for us, and yet still went on for if, we now ask the Father for a hard thing. When we ask for the hard thing, we are asking for more than what God had planned for us at that time.
It was Elisha that asked for this hard thing, and he found himself blessed because he was with the seasoned, veteran Prophet Elijah. Elijah knew that they had crossed over the water on dry land, and had arrived at the spot of his departure. In order for Elisha to receive the double portion asked for, they still needed more. And even though they were at the spot where Elijah’s anointing had brought them, Elijah knew that more was needed now. We see Elijah go for more in 2 Kings 2:11, “And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.” God, and Elijah worked it together to deliver the double portion that Elisha had asked for: God was in the place where Elijah’s anointing returned him for his ride home: there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, where God parted them both asunder. God opened Elisha eyes to see Elijah’s anointing being divided into two that produced the double portion. This was not hard for God, but it would have been impossible for Elisha to receive it if Elijah had not known to “still go on” even after he had reached the spot. Elijah prayed for God to open up Elisha’s eyes, and God easily finished it up. If you make it to the place that God has for you at that time, and yet still go on, you may have a chance to receive the hard thing. It is not hard for God, but it is hard for us because it is complicated along the way. Sometime you have to still go on to get it, and move God from his plans to establish you as you are as of now.
