2 Kings 6: 1- 7
And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. 2 Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there, and let us make there a place where we may dwell.” So, he answered, “Go.” 3 Then one said, “Please consent to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I will go.” 4 So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. 5 But as one was cutting down a tree, the iron ax head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, master! For it was borrowed.” 6 So the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. So, he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float. 7 Therefore he said, “Pick it up for yourself.” So, he reached out his hand and took it.
“…WHERE DID IT FALL? AND HE SHOWED HIM THE PLACE (2 Kings 6: 6).”
Today if you sense there was a time when you were closer to the Lord than you are now. Or a time when you sensed God’s work in your life more than you do today and you ask, what do I need to do? Well, there needs to be an acknowledgment and confession.
The Holy Spirit wants to take you by the hand and lead you to the place where you lost it. The place where you lost it, is the place where you will find it. The place of losing was also the place of finding.
He’ll show you the place where you got away from the word. He’ll show you the place where you allowed unconfessed sin in your life. He’ll show you the place where you had the wrong spirit. He’ll show you the place where you rebelled against Him.
The place where you lost the power of God is the place where you’ll find the power of God. That’s where the power of God will be renewed in your life. The prophet said, “Show me the place.” The Spirit of God comes to you today and He is saying show me the place.
The prophet of God cut a stick, he cast it in the water at the very place where the axe head had gone down, and the axe head rose to the surface and not only did it rise to the surface, defying the law of gravity but it swam against the current defying the currents
That’s supernatural. He recovered it. That was the supernatural working of the power of God.
“… AND HE REACHED OUT HIS HAND, AND TOOK IT (2 Kings 6: 6).”
This is our birthright as children of God. We don’t have to be without answered prayer, we don’t have to be without the power of the Lord, we don’t have to be without the anointing of the Holy Spirit, we don’t have to be without the leadership of God in our life.
You don’t have to be without the power of the Spirit working in you. Today we say to the Lord, this is where it happened. This is what’s wrong Lord.
Once you’ve put it under the blood of Jesus Christ it’s your right as a child of God to reach out and to take it, and to receive it.
“… [Jesus] breathed on [His disciples] and He said to them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost (John 20:22)” And today the Lord is saying to you, receive the Holy Spirit. He is available to you.
I want each of you, and everyone connected to this ministry to have the keen, sharp cutting edge, soul winning, and life changing power of God upon us in every ministry. In everything we do, and all that we attempt for the Lord, that God would be in it, that God would bless it.
