Topic: Recover Lost Resources – from – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi [Thursday, January 04, 2018].
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).
Our text talks about the sons of the prophets who got Prophet Elisha’s permission to enlarge their residence. They went in his company to cut beams from Jordan. The axe head of one of the young men fell into the river when cutting his beam. And the axe was borrowed. He cried to Elisha who promptly identified where it fell, cut down a stick, and cast it into the water; and the iron swam up, defying the time-tested principles of floatation and upthrust. The presence of Elisha made the difference.
To recover your lost resources, be it health, money, material, position, or a Christian experience, you must cry unto God. Beloved, life’s challenges are common to all, but you need not fear if God is with you. No matter what you have lost in any area of your life, you can recover it through Christ. Like the sons of the Prophets, invite Christ into your life; daily walk with God and call upon Him in prayer. He will turn your losses into gain.
Challenge: You will not borrow, lose but gain.
Prayer: Dear Lord, turn my losses into gain in Jesus’ name.
Quote: Cry unto God.
