The Shunamite mother wanted Elisha to come visit her deceased son. Elisha told his servant to go to the boy and lay his staff upon him. The dead boy wasn’t affected by Elisha’s servant. He wasn’t affected by Elisha’s staff. 
The Shunamite woman convinced Elisha to come to her house. The boy came alive when Elisha went to him. 
Isn’t that a picture of us sometimes? We think “oh this will be easier and it’ll probably work”. But that type of attitude can lead to blessings being delayed and hearts potentially becoming hardened. 
Surrender fully to what you are called to do when you are called to do it. You have been called to do wonderful things for the Lord. He is wanting to use you for his glory.
Scripture taken from:

II Kings 4:28-37
