But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed – 2 Kings 6:5 (KJV).
That is the Focal Scripture of Be HOPEAssured Devotional today.
The story of our Focal Scripture began with the sons of the Prophet desiring a larger place of dwelling; and seeking Elisha’s permission to embark on an enlargement project. It was while one was felling a beam that the axehead fell into the water.
Friend, every plan to move you from one level to a higher and larger one will always be met with stiff opposition from hell. The devil’s business is to do evil. Do not expect him to applaud your advancement projects.
Of all things they needed to fell trees, it was the all-important axe that they don’t have hence it was borrowed. Check what you need desperately but don’t have; they are the things that will move you to your next level.
It wasn’t any man that fell into the water; it was the most useful part of the borrowed instrument – the axe head. It didn’t fall when they were cutting other woods but when they were felling the beam (the building’s support system). What the devil attacks the most is the most profitable aspect of your life. Don’t give up in any area you face frustrations; there’s enlargement there.
Child of God, it is war against the devil. There’s no quitting in our agenda. Remember that as Elisha, the man with Elijah’s double anointing was on hand to rescue the situation; Jesus Christ, the One anointed without measure, lives in you. Be HOPEAssured that your enlargement is guaranteed! Amen!
Declare With Me: No matter the challenges, my enlargement is sure. Amen!
