Journal Entry by Warren Mortomore
S – Scripture: 2 Kings 6:4-7 (NLT)
’When they arrived at the Jordan, they began cutting down trees. But as one of them was chopping, his axe head fell into the river. “Ah my Lord!” he cried. “It was a borrowed axe!” “Where did it fall?” the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw in into the water. Then the axe head rose to the surface and floated. “Grab it”, Elisha said to him, and the man reached out and grabbed it.”
O – Observation
For an axe head to float, for iron to float – it is impossible. It is a reminder to us that He is the God of the impossible, for what seemed impossible floated to the surface. As it did the man reached out on Elisha’s instruction and grabbed it.
A – Application
What everyday situations do I face that I am to ask for the God of the impossible for help. I often times face situations in my own strength, my own ability and I don’t ask for his help, and I miss the opportunity of seeing Him work on my behalf. He is the God of the impossible, the God of the dead ends and waits for us to call out to Him for help. When he does answer, when he does provide, He calls us to reach out and grab ahold of what He is doing and providing.
P – Prayer
Lord you are the God of the Impossible. Help me to see you at work in my everyday situations, but not only see you, but to reach and grab hold of the miracle you are working on my behalf.
