Unbelief is crippling to a Christian. How long will you go on dismissing the truths written in God’s word? I’ve heard it taught that God will not do anything contrary to nature; for instance, gravity. Then lo, and behold, I come across a segment of scripture, denying that lie. This is not the only one, just the one that I’m dealing with today. Elisha was the head of a group of prophets, and they congregated together, but needed more space. They decided to build a new place, and during the process one of the prophets dropped his axe head into the water. He freaked out because he had borrowed it. Elisha dipped a stick into the water, and the iron axe head floated to the top. This was unnatural, defied gravity, and yet, here it is in the Bible. Elisha was given double the ability to prophesy, because he saw Elijah carried away in a chariot of fire into the heavens, (another unnatural occurrence), but we have access to the same Spirit, but because of our unbelief, we prohibit ourselves from walking in these types of miracles. We need to go back and relearn the truth, and stop dismissing notions in the Bible that don’t fit the narrative we’ve been taught by man; then, maybe, we will begin to see and experience God as never before.
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. 2 Kings 6:5-6
