Keep striking

Sometimes we have to press in to receive what we need from the Lord.  It is so easy to spend just a few minutes in prayer and walk away hoping we will receive what we have asked for but the final prophecy of Elisha in 2 Kings 13:18-19 paints a different picture.  The king was told to strike the ground but stopped after three times.  Elisha didn’t tell him how many times to strike but the kings desire to defeat his enemy did not rise to the level of repeatedly striking the ground over and over again.  Because of this, Elisha told him if he would have struck the ground 6 or 7 times the outcome would have been different.  When you need a breakthrough, when you are up against a serious challenge, don’t stop asking Him for help, don’t give up.  Keep striking heaven with your prayers until you receive the breakthrough!
