Press on and do what God has called you to do, He will lead you!

Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha . . . saw him no more -2 Kings 2:11-12 
It is not wrong for you to depend on your "Elijah" for as long as God gives him to you. But remember that the time will come when he must leave and will no longer be your guide and your leader, because God does not intend for him to stay. Even the thought of that causes you to say, "I cannot continue without my 'Elijah.' " Yet God says you must continue. 
Alone at Your "Jordan" (2 Kings 2:14). The Jordan River represents the type of separation where you have no fellowship with anyone else, and where no one else can take your responsibility from you. You now have to put to the test what you learned when you were with your "Elijah." You have been to the Jordan over and over again with Elijah, but now you are facing it alone. There is no use in saying that you cannot go- the experience is here, and you must go. If you truly want to know whether or not God is the God your faith believes Him to be, then go through your "Jordan" alone. 
Alone at Your "Jericho" (2 Kings 2:15). Jericho represents the place where you have seen your "Elijah" do great things. Yet when you come alone to your "Jericho," you have a strong reluctance to take the initiative and trust in God, wanting, instead, for someone else to take it for you. But if you remain true to what you learned while with your "Elijah," you will receive a sign, as Elisha did, that God is with you. 
Alone at Your "Bethel" (2 Kings 2:23). At your "Bethel" you will find yourself at your wits' end but at the beginning of God's wisdom. When you come to your wits' end and feel inclined to panic- don't! Stand true to God and He will bring out His truth in a way that will make your life an expression of worship. Put into practice what you learned while with your "Elijah"- use his mantle and pray (see 2 Kings 2:13-14). Make a determination to trust in God, and do not even look for Elijah anymore. (COPIED FROM SOMEONE ELSE.. BUT GOD IS SAYING, PUT YOUR CONFIDENCE IN ME, NOT IN MAN TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU DO, AS HUMANS WE GET DEPENDENT ON OTHERS TO HELP US TO DO WHAT WE FEEL THAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO, THEN WHEN THEY ARE GONE, WE ARE LOST. BUT GOD SAYS GO ON, THE FIELDS ARE WHITE IT IS HARVEST TIME.)
