A dear man of God was graduating from our campus, several years ago. I did all I could to see him before he left. I was finally able to see him around 2am, on the road, after a very busy schedule. I took a seed with me, knelt near a gutter as he laid hands on me. The words he prayed over me have become one of the mantles I wear to date.
Friend, don’t joke with impartation. You would be the same person in the next five years except for three things; the friends you keep (relationship), the books you read (information) and the impartation you receive. A lot of people have read powerful books, met great people but are still lacking in manifestation because of lack of impartation.
My own spiritual father taught us never to get on the stage of destiny with incomplete preparation and incomplete impartation. Preparation will get you ready for your destiny, impartation will make the difference on how you fulfil that destiny. When you see the way Elisha treasured the impartation from Elijah, you would understand how priceless it is.
“And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken away from you. And Elisha said, I pray, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me” (2 Kings 2:9). Elisha did not ask for physical things, he asked for spiritual impartation, and it made all the difference in his life and ministry. Joshua entered into his prophetic destiny by impartation (Deuteronomy 34:9).
One of the blessings of following and service is impartation. You have not truly followed or served someone until the grace on that person rubs off on you. This is why you must know what you are looking for. Notice that while Elisha got the double portion of Elijah’s spirit, Gehazi got leprosy; his focus was different (2 Kings 5:20-27). People could not doubt the followership of Jesus’ disciples when they saw their manifestation; they have been imparted (Acts 4:13).
God has designed that the stuff you need to become all that He has ordained for you would be packaged in people. This is why you must be a student of information and a recipient of impartation. Let go of pride. Get your focus right. Treasure relationships. Follow well. Serve well. Pay prices. Sow seeds. Go for impartation. There is something you need that is in someone else’ life. Why struggle through life when you can leverage grace?
