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.
I read through this scripture during my quiet time the other day, and while I’ve read it before, this time I paused to pray and ask God what the point of this scripture is or how I could apply it directly to my life. The study notes in my Bible are pretty silent around this scripture and instead of Googling or researching online, I wanted to pray and ask God what He wanted me to take from it.
