Genesis 26:13 “And the man waxed great and went forward and grew until he became very great”
2Kings 5:21 “So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said Is all well?”
Gehazi was described as running after Naaman, that is an indication of a man pursuing wealth by all means. Hear this:
Proverbs 28:20 “A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent”
Once you see a man running like Gehazi, you have seen a man who is not willing to follow the growth process. He is a man that want to follow shortcuts, he want to suddenly become very great without waxing great and going forward. Gehazi ended up making a mess of his destiny.
2Kings 5:23 “And Naaman said Be content take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him.”
2Kings 5:27 “The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.”
Elisha his master followed Elijah for not less than twenty years before he became the notably prophet the world knew. Elisha followed process, he was always introduced as:
2Kings 3:11 “…Elisha the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah.”
Elisha consistently sow seeds of service into the life of Elijah and ended up with a harvest of the double portion of the anointing on Elijah. His service was the seed and he of course reaped a hundredfold.
Friend, what seeds are you sowing towards your greatness? Are you following the growth process? Even Jesus came and followed the growth process:
Luke 2:40 “And the child (Jesus) grew and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.”
