2Kings 6:1-7

  Now the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See, the place where we dwell under your charge is too small for us. Let us go to the Jordan and each of us get there a log, and let us make a place for us to dwell there.” And he answered, “Go.” Then one of them said, “Be pleased to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I will go.” So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. But as one was felling a log, his axe head fell into the water, and he cried out, “Alas, my master! It was borrowed.” Then the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, he cut off a stick and threw it in there and made the iron float. And he said, “Take it up.” So he reached out his hand and took it.

He had to REACH IN and violate natural laws of gravity. Miracle only completed once he had participated/cooperated with it.

God is calling many of us from a passive role of “reaching out or reaching up” to a more active posture of “reaching in”.

Perception

We must begin to see differently.

Perception

Power “if you see me” (2Kings 2:10)

Warfare (2Kings 6:17-18)

Fellowship (1Corinthians 13:12)

slide18

PERCEPTION

See the Problem

See the Promise/Purpose/Plan

See the Provision (pre-emptively)

slide19

Urging positivity is not just beside the point when our circumstances are rotten, it’s also dangerously distracting.

Genesis 31

10 In the breeding season of the flock I lifted up my eyes and saw in a dream that the goats that mated with the flock were striped, spotted, and mottled. 11 Then the angel of God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob,’ and I said, ‘Here I am!’ 12 And he said, ‘Lift up your eyes and see, all the goats that mate with the flock are striped, spotted, and mottled, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you.

Participation of Obedience

Our obedience has to be first motivated from relationship (John 14:23, 15:10; 1John 5:3), not just a met requirement for our blessing or acquisition (Deuteronomy 28).
