Now the company of prophets said to Elisha, “As you see, the place where we live under your charge is too small for us. Let us go to the Jordan, and let us collect logs there, one for each of us, and build a place there for us to live.” He answered, “Do so.” Then one of them said, “Please come with your servants.” And he answered, “I will.” So he went with them. When they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. But as one was felling a log, his ax head fell into the water; he cried out, “Alas, master! It was borrowed.” Then the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, he cut off a stick, and threw it in there, and made the iron float. He said, “Pick it up.” So he reached out his hand and took it. (2 Kings 6:1-7, NRSV)
Can an iron ax head float in water?
Or better question, have you ever been near the water or on the water and dropped something into or overboard? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to drop a stick in and make the item float to the top?
This is what I posted about yesterday. We want to see the miracle. The big thing.
These are the things we read about and ask, why don’t they happen today? Maybe they do and we just can’t see them because we can’t believe it if we did.
Maybe God is working all around us and we just overlook it because it is too simple.
What would you honestly do if you saw this? Would you believe without a doubt from then forward?
How would this affect your faith?
