Elam came to me early. I could tell he was distraught and agitated. So desirous was he to be on his way, he was already dressed and equipped for his journey.
I understood the feelings that were coursing through his mind, and took pains to express them back to him. And I followed that with the reminder of what happens when we let emotions blind us to the leading of the Spirit.
In that very moment I knew that indeed this was the Spirit’s prompting him. And said so, just as Elijah and the others joined us.
Elijah then released them to follow up what we had discussed yesterday. For the timing was right.
Then he told me to prepare.
