But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the Lord here, through whom we may inquire of the Lord?” -2 Kings 3:11
Elisha was known in 2 Kings 3 for one main thing–being a prophet of God. He was not known for his creativity, innovation, or celebrity status. He had nothing to offer except the One he served.
Despite only being know for following God, he was the one guy who had a voice before the kings of his time and was able to accurately advise them regarding the future.
God often uses those who follow him to influence national leaders. Joseph, Daniel, Elisha…what about you? The hardest part is the first step–being known for following God.
The rest is simply continuing to walk in this reality.
