II Kings 13:14-20 KJV  Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.  [15]  And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows.  [16]  And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king's hands.  [17]  And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD'S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.  [18]  And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed.  [19]  And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.  [20]  And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year.


-At some point in life, it will slip in and it will sap your energy and it will do its best to talk you down from your high and lofty ideas.  It happens to the best of men and to the worst of men.  It is an attitude of “live and let live.”

-Don’t stir the pot too much and don’t expect people to get overly involved in a quest for revival.  Get a diversion, a hobby, or a project that will keep you occupied.  Sell your soul to the poverty of half-heartedness.
