II Kings 2:11-12
As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. Elisha saw this and cried out, “My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel!” And Elisha saw him no more. Then he took hold of his own clothes and tore them apart.
It doesn’t happen very often – a supernatural, miraculous, awe-inspiring vision of God. Moses, Mary, Paul, Jacob, Hagar, and Peter, they all got a glimpse into the spirit-world that was life changing.
Chances are you will never experience anything like these people. You may never see chariots and horses of fire. You may never experience the sight of angels ascending and descending. But…as you spend quality time in God’s presence, you are giving Him permission to work in you a life-changing event.
God can speak to you in ways that are as real to you as seeing a chariot of fire. Many people ask me how they can hear from God. I tell them all the same thing – be listening. God knows you personally. The Lord knows exactly what it will take for you to know that you have heard from Him. The Lord has your address, He knows where you live and how to get to you. All you can do is listen and wait.
Be open to His Spirit today. Be ready and listening. Who knows, you may be that one in a million that receives a “sky-opening” vision. But if not, you can still hear something from God that will turn your life around.
