BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Zechariah 13–14; Revelation 21
2 Kings 6:3-7
MFM Daily Devotional 30th December 2022 MESSAGE
In 2 Kings 6:3-7, the Bible presents an interesting account of the sons of the prophet’s well-meaning intention to enlarge their dwelling place and make it more habitable. To achieve this, they decided to go to the forest and cut woods for the project. They requested that Prophet Elisha should go with them, and he obliged.
While they were felling trees, the axe head fell into the river. The son of the prophet lamented the loss of the axe head. This was because the axe head was borrowed and without it, their work could not continue or their mission be accomplished. It was the most important tool for the work at hand.
Your axe head could be that cutting edge skill or talent that sets you apart from others. It could be your anointing. It could be the spiritual gifts that make your ministry impactful. It is anything tangible or intangible, physical or spiritual that God has given to you to fulfil your divine assignment. Therefore, the implication of the loss of the axe head is destiny abortion and failure as well as the death of the person’s glory.
The truth is that the devil has stolen the axe head of millions of people. In God’s record, such people are billionaires, famous business tycoons, prophets unto nations and inventors. It is unfortunate that in real life such persons are failures, crawlers, unknown and unsung individuals with no impact in life. Their axe head, the instrument to fulfil their destiny with and to connect them to unusual success in life, has been lost or stolen.
Is there any hope for anyone in such a situation? Can anyone in this kind of predicament find help? The answer to both questions is in the affirmative. In the biblical account in our Fire Scripture today, the axe head was miraculously recovered by the intervention and prophetic action of Elisha. The law of nature or science was suspended. The power of God located the axe head from the bottom of the river and brought it to the surface where it floated and was picked up.
Beloved, you were lost and Jesus Christ found and saved you. The same Lord and Saviour can find and save the lost today.

Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
