When God sends you a man of God, you are given a chance to receive him and catch the anointing that is on his life. The anointing is the principal thing that you and I need to do God’s work. The prophet Zechariah knew that the most important thing was the anointing. It was he who said, Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit. Elisha also realized that the thing which made Elijah’s ministry successful was the anointing. When he had the opportunity, he asked for the anointing. Some people may have asked for the money, the education or the qualifications that Elijah had. But Elisha just wanted the anointing.
