In 2 Kings 6 we learn a valuable lesson with Elisha and the floating axe head. We learn how the one who was chopping the tree with a borrowed axe lost the axe head off of the handle. Once he realized that he had lost what he had borrowed he called out to Elisha for help. Elisha asked the young man where he lost it and then they stood together over the place where it fell.
I want you to think about this with me in another light to better understand this message. Would you agree that what you have in your life is a gift? Would you agree that what you have has been borrowed? Now the question is, how affective is your life with Jesus Christ? Have you lost your edge in the Word of God? Do you know where or why you have lost it? Does your life appear to be like an axe without a head in making no headway in the walls before you?
Way too many times we, like the one who lost his edge, lose ours because we forget how God is the One that carries us forward. Until we learn to apply Gods Word to our lives we are ineffective as a handle hitting the tree. If you feel stumped today in problems within your home or within your work then seek God’s Word for the answers you need to move forward once again….Amen
