Elijah called Elisha into ministry and empowered him with twice the portion of his anointing. 

Elisha took over from Elisha and continued from where Elijah stoped. Gehazi failed. But Elisha did not give up on men under him. 

We saw him make a barren woman become a joyful mother of children, help a widow pay her bills, raise a dead boy back to life, help find the lost ax head, save sons of prophets from poisoned food, and even fed a hundred people. 

He was now an established name among prophets. He was established. But he has a mandate to establish others. 

God gave him a new assignment to anoint Jehu as king in Isreal. He realized that it was time to raise others. So, he sent a son of the prophet.   2 Kings 9:1 *_And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramoth-gilead:*_

In order to raise others, there are some basic things you must do. Like Elisha 

1. *Recognize and work with people*. No leader ever succeeds without people. In the Catholic Church, you have the altar boys. In Anglican, you have the seminarians. In Winners, you have church workers. Elisha had the children of the prophets. Have people under you who you can both train and delegate. 

2. *Give them meaningful assignments*. People are trained via relevant work packages. Delegate important tasks to them. Ask them to represent you in a meeting. Send them out. 2 Kings 9:1 *_And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him,...:*_

3. *Give specific and clear instructions*. Do not assume they will know what to do - tell them. 2 Kings 9:1 *_Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramoth-gilead:*_ Assumption is the mother of frustration. So, be specific on the location of the assignment. 

4. *Send them to the right people*. People help people grow. Everyone had a destiny helper. Send your mentees to the right people for the right purposes. 2 Kings 9:2 *_And when thou comest thither, look out there Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in, and make him arise up from among his brethren, and carry him to an inner chamber;*_

5. *Give them relevant tools to work*. Elisha gave him the oil. Give your mentees the necessary tools to achieve maximum results - computers, internet, etc.  2 Kings 9:3 *_Then take the box of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the Lord, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not.*_

5. *Believe in them to achieve excellent results*. Believe that others can do what you are currently doing - and possibly better. Believe in the capacity of others to deliver. 2 Kings 9:4 *_So the young man, even the young man the prophet, went to Ramoth-gilead.*_

He went to Ramatu-Gilead. He saw Jehu. He anointed Jehu, and He left as his master asked him to do. 2 Kings 9:10 *_And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.*_

Work with people in your life to build them into better versions of you. Give people opportunities to learn, grow and mature into leaders. 

When you do this, you not only empower them, but you also free yourself and your time to focus on other things. When you develop and delegate others, you create time to;

👉🏾Play, relax, and refresh 

👉🏾Focus on new visions and missions 

👉🏾Spend with friends and families 

👉🏾Write your articles, books and autobiography 

👉🏾Pray, study,  and meditate 

👉🏾Exercise and stay healthy. 


So build people under you to become like you. Remember, you will not be here for ever. 

So co-create and recreate yourself in other. This was what God did in Eden when He made man in His image and gave him authority, dominion and power. Do the same. 

Start today. 

*Prayer*. Father, help me to identify, build and recreate myself in others just as you did in Garden of Eden 

*Be blessed. Stay blessed*.🙏🏼
