Double Portion – #23
God cares about everything in our lives, even the things that we would normally think small. Read 2 Kings 6:1-7
Now the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “Behold now, the place before you where we are living is too limited for us. Please let us go to the Jordan and each of us take from there a beam, and let us make a place there for ourselves where we may live.” So he said, “Go.” Then one said, “Please be willing to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I shall go.” So he went with them; and when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, my master! For it was borrowed.” Then the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And when he showed him the place, he cut off a stick and threw it in there, and made the iron float. He said, “Take it up for yourself.” So he put out his hand and took it.
2 Kings 6:1-7 NASB
Even the small things in our life, God cares. Work was going on here and one man lost an item that he had borrowed and he didn’t know how he would repay it. God had Elisha to solve that problem for him.
Sometimes we think that God is only concerned about the big areas of our life, but God wants to be involved in every area of our lives. And not just involved, but in control of every area of our lives. We can trust Him with everything, the big areas and the small areas.
