Had Elisha asked Elijah what was expected of him,--what would be his work,--he would have been answered: God knows; He will make it known to you. If you wait upon the Lord, He will answer your every question. You may come with me if you have evidence that God has called you. Know for yourself that God stands back of me, and 221 that it is His voice you hear. If you can count everything but dross that you may win the favor of God, come.

Elisa kaldes til profet

Hvis Elisa havde spurgt Elias, hvad man ventede af ham, ville han have fået dette svar: "Gud ved det, han vil vise dig det. Hvis du venter på Herren vil han besvare alle dine spørgsmål. Du kan følge mig, hvis du er overbevist om, at Gud har kaldet dig. Du må gøre det klart for dig selv, at Gud står bag mig, og at det er hans røst, du hører. Hvis du kan regne alt for skarn for at vinde Guds gunst, kan du roligt komme."
