“The Swimming Axe Head”

Key Verse

“And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.” 2 Kings 6:6

Text — 2 Kings 6:1-6


Iron is a heavy object that cannot float on water, it sinks into it – it is the law of gravity. The sons of the prophet in our Bible passage needed to expand their abode. They informed Elisha their master and invited him to go with them to Jordan. As they were cutting down the trees, the axe head of one of them fell into the water and he cried out to their master for help. Then a miracle happened – prophet Elisha cut a piece of wood and threw it into the water at the spot where the axe head fell into. Contrary to the law of nature, the axe head floated on water – the iron swam!

If the sons of the prophet did not invite Elisha to go with them, they would have been without solution to their problem. As the prophet responded promptly and solve the problem (made the axe head to float) so Jesus responds without delay to all our problems and needs. You need Jesus today, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
You may have challenges with your health or that of a loved one – call on Jesus. Your academic work may not be going on well, tell Jesus He will give you wisdom for excellence.
