Read and Meditate on Today’s The Upper Room Daily Devotional for Saturday 11th June 2022, written by Andrew Michael Ardoin. God bless you as you study His Word Today!

2 Kings 6:1-7

None of my concerns is insignificant to God.

As one was felling a log, his ax head fell into the water; he cried out, “Alas, master! It was borrowed.” – 2 Kings 6:5 (NRSV)

Sometimes I doubt that God cares about the mundane aspects of my life. Yet at the same time, how I handle the mundane things reveals my character. After all, Jesus commends those who are faithful with small things (see Matt. 25:23).

I work in a research office. A senior professor at the office has a library of reference books and lets me borrow them. One day the book I needed was missing. I felt certain I had returned it when I last used it, but I couldn’t be sure. This technical book would be expensive to replace. Then I remembered Elisha and the floating ax head. I recalled the words of scripture, “Alas, master! It was borrowed.” I wanted to demonstrate godly stewardship and Christian character in the workplace, so I prayed, “Lord, if I misplaced the book, remind me where I put it. If someone else took the book, may it be returned.”

After about 10 days, the book showed up on the professor’s desk. I don’t equate the book’s return with a miraculously buoyant ax head, but I am always encouraged by answered prayer.

God’s concern for us is beyond measure. We can trust God to bring resolution to any situation, even when it seems insignificant.

O Lord, help us to honor you through faithful stewardship of your gifts. Amen.

To be faithful with what we borrow

I believe He’s alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you Lord for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” Congratulations! You are Born Again... Get closer to God by reading your BIBLE and worshiping with other believers.
