walkingElisha didn’t pass go or collect $200. He didn’t go to jail either. When he discovered the call of God in his life, he walked after Elijah.

He ran.

1 Kings 19:19-21 (NIV) 19  So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. 20  Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. “Let me kiss my father and mother good-by,” he said, “and then I will come with you.” “Go back,” Elijah replied. “What have I done to you?” 21  So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his attendant.

As you listen, be aware that Josh uses visual aids so that his hearer gets the idea more clearly. In this podcast, you’ll have to imagine Josh standing on the balance beam walking, then sitting, then clinging to it like a baby.

Take this challenge to walk in faith, trusting Jesus by taking what Bob Fetherlin calls, “Faith-filled risks”.
