Has your faith sunk
2. Job 42:1-10
“Faith is not believing that God can; it is knowing that He will”.
Faith allows God to do for us and with us what we could never do alone.
It’s a story that is told to us about a miracle that God performed through one of His greatest Old Testament prophets, Elisha.
Elisha was the prophetic successor of another great Old Testament prophet named Elijah. God had raised Elijah to be His spokesman during the very difficult and wicked times of the kings of Israel. Elijah had served his people faithfully; but the time finally came when God called His prophet to Himself—taking him up to heaven in “a chariot of fire”. But before Elijah departed from this earth, God had called and commissioned his successor Elisha.
Elisha’s school of the prophets was growing and now needed to be relocated and expanded. He asked his students for help in supplying the necessary building materials. Each student was to cut down a beam and bring it with him to the new construction sight.
Why is our faith Sunk?
1. forgotten the plan of God.
2. forgotten and overlooked others
3. forgotten to sharpen the edges
What is the axe in our life?
The faith of God is the axe in our life today.
We forget to sharpen the faith through the word of God
Where is the cutting edge this morning? For most of us, it is at the bottom of the river, totally beyond our reach and beyond our ability to recover. Can we get it back? Yes! If we will take the steps we have been given this evening. Are you willing? That is the first step. The second is in getting before the Lord and dealing with the problem His way!
