God knows our need before we do!

In this latest example of God’s provision, we see Elisha pray that an axe head might float after being lost in the Jordan. God, we see, is sovereign over all aspects of our lives. He cares about the detail. Do you need God’s provision in your life? Are you wondering whether He’ll move? In this latest episode we see God working all things for good. Sending Elisha ahead to save the day. God is never caught out. Never caught unaware. He sees our need before we do and makes ample provision. He is a God who cares and who has gone to every length to rescue us.


2 Kings 6:1–7 (Listen)

The Axe Head Recovered

6:1 Now the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See, the place where we dwell under your charge is too small for us. Let us go to the Jordan and each of us get there a log, and let us make a place for us to dwell there.” And he answered, “Go.” Then one of them said, “Be pleased to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I will go.” So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. But as one was felling a log, his axe head fell into the water, and he cried out, “Alas, my 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. And he said, “Take it up.” So he reached out his hand and took it.
