The Floating Ax Head

Sunday, December 11, 2011| Message byEric Ludy
There are tests of faith that prove the true substance of our spiritual man. First instance, when God appears to be silent, how do we respond? When God appears to have forgotten, do we actually believe He has? Or when the natural realm boasts that such a thing is impossible, will we believe the boast? Or how about when it would appear our God has lost, will we, for even one moment, tremble under the anxiety of such a farce? Ax heads sink in water. It's a natural fact. But God is in the business of making iron float. And the church of Jesus Christ today must once again believe that even though it may appear that the ax head has officially sunk, it is in such moments that our God smiles and says, "Now watch what I will do!"
