Elisha then picked up Elijah’s cloak that had fallen from him and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan. He took the cloak that had fallen from Elijah and struck the water with it. “Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over.

– 2 Kings 2:13-14 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The prophet Elijah had been taken up with God. Now Elijah’s disciple, Elisha, was faced with the question of whether God was with Elisha like he was with Elijah. This is every young generation’s anxiety, yet Elisha discovered what continues to ring true today—God has a purpose for every generation. But the walk of faith has no cut path ahead, only the stories of those who have walked before us. Yet God is ready to blaze new trails for each generation that calls out to him. He is the same God of our fathers.
