2 Kings 6 v 5-6: But as one was felling his beam, the axhead fell into the water, and he cried, alas, my master, for it was borrowed! (6) The man of God said, where did it fall? When shown the place, Elisha cut off a stick and threw it in there, and the iron floated.
Well, seriously, logically that axhead is just not going to float! Right?
|God's creativity outstrips our creativity!|
2 Kings 13 v 21: So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha, and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood to his feet.
OK then, logically, not going to happen, right?
This is why I say faith in God is illogical BUT truly, is faith illogical? Only to us humans who cannot see the bigger picture. But on thinking this through I think I can say with certainty that faith is logical. There are lots of
- Parting the Red Sea
- Water filling pits in the desert with no sign of rain
- Axheads floating
- Men being raised from the dead .........and many more..........
So, logically, if God can make a walking staff bud, a bush burst into flame spontaneously, provide manna to a rebellious hungry nation, make 5 fish and 2 loaves feed thousands (with leftovers), open prison doors, etc, etc, then faith in our God makes perfect sense.
My encouragement to you is faith in Christ is logical and makes sense. Have no doubt in your God. He will never let you down.
