Elisha needed to cooperate with the call of God on his life to receive the mantle. He could’ve rejected this calling, as so many people may have done in their lives. For Elisha, he hungered and pursued this appointment, as shown in how he pursued Elijah as a mentor. It was a sign of the burden God already placed in his heart. We can learn that if we have a burden and a desire for a certain appointment, it’s probably God who placed it there. God would not really call you into something, without placing a desire for this holy calling.
Joseph knew that at a young age, through prophetic dreams, that God called him to be a ruler. The desire God plants in our hearts is just one of many possible confirmations that the calling is ours. Thus, just because you have a desire does not mean that you are already called — remember, the heart can be deceitful at times (Jer. 17:9).
