2 Kings 6:4-7: If it matters to you, it matters to God

Religion tries to tell us that God only cares about “the big stuff.” But our magnificent God is so loving and so powerful, He cares about every single detail of your life and is able — and wants to — take care of it for you.

In 2 Kings 6:4-7, the Bible has the following story:

“…They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axhead fell into the water. ‘Oh no, my lord!’ he cried out. ‘It was borrowed!’ The man of God asked, ‘Where did it fall?’ When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. ‘Lift it out,’ he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it.” (NIV)

In this beautiful story, we see that God even cares about a lost axhead! The man had borrowed the ax, so you can imagine him being upset when he lost the axhead. But God took care of him. Through Elisha, God miraculously returned the axhead to the man.

Next time you misplace a hammer, ask your loving heavenly Father for His help. Next time, you have any care (no matter how small it may seem), pray to God. He loves to help you — His beloved child.
