Today you should read: 2 Kings 6:1-7

Miracles….

Have you ever seen a miracle with your own eyes?  I have had the privilege of seeing several – and its changes so much about your faith and how you see God.  God has used miracles to reveal Himself nearly ever since the beginning of the world.  Things like parting the Red Sea, healing, raising the dead, feeding the 5,000 and so many more.

In today’s story, we see yet another miracle – a floating ax head.  A borrowed ax – an accident – a difficult situation – and God’s servant showing God’s power by saving the situation.

Does God still do miracles today?  Yes!  He’s the author of all healing.  He saves marriages that seem hopeless.  He brings things back to memory in the most critical times (ask a student).  The greatest miracle of all is the salvation of a lost soul – the change of life that transforms everything.

Need a miracle?  Pray and ask in faith – believing in God and then leave it up to Him.

But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.             James 1-6-8

Trust the answer to God.  Miracles don’t always take the form we expect.  But make to mistake – we serve a miracle working God who is able – more than able.  Trust Him with your miracle today.

  1. I love this passage. What I love most, however, is the part of God’s character that it reveals. The same God who speaks mountains into existence, who parts the seas, who gives sight to the blind, and who gives life from death…this same God also makes axeheads float. He is not just God of the extraordinary, He is God of the ordinary…and He cares about us in the minor details of our day. I get so consumed with the “significant” events in my life that I often fail to include God in the routine events.

    Elisha provides a wonderful example, as this miracle of the ordinary is sandwiched between the healing of an Aramean general and the ultimate deliverance of Israel’s army. May I learn to look to God in all things, remaining cognizant of human needs in the midst of life’s “important” events.
