As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axe head fell into the water. "Oh no, my lord!" he cried out. "It was borrowed!" – II Kings 6:5
God didn’t create you to reap and count losses and miseries, but rather to experience His goodness and thereby count your blessings. That is why the Bible say that “Oh that men should praise the Lord for His goodness and wonderful works…” (Ps. 107:8). Peradventure the devil has despoiled you of your blessings, fret not, because God will arise to restore you in multiple fold. Because God did not create you to accumulate losses, everything you have lost shall find its way back into your life in Jesus name.
In II Kings 6, when one of the sons of the prophet who borrowed the head of an axe lost it to the waters, he knew that he had borrowed trouble if he could not return the axe head. Interestingly, though he cried his eyes out but he didn’t hide the ugly incident from Elisha, the man of God. Because nothing is impossible with God, the head axe found its way back out of the waters. The loss of the axe head was, of course, a case of non-recoupable loss in the sight of the son of the prophet, but know that when God takes over your case, what is considered lost in your sight is under the eagle eye of the Lord.
Certainly. God’s package of restoration is colossal and complete. Hence, God doesn’t restore a man half way. He rather gives him a total package of restoration of everything he had lost. Because the hand of the Lord is not shortened to only help you to an extent, everything you have lost shall be fully restored back to you, to make your joy full and overflow in Jesus name. Jesus is the Great Restorer whose restoration power is unlimited. Seek His face today over your lost possessions and your face will begin to radiate with joy in Jesus name.
