Looking to the Master

In 2 Kings 6:5, we read the second in our series of seven principles to regain our spiritual edge. It is the response of the man who lost his cutting edge,

But as one was cutting down a tree, the iron ax head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, master! For it was borrowed.”

When this man lost his ax head and it fell into the water, he cried out and said, “Alas, master!” He went to the prophet.

The prophet was God’s representative in that day. He was the mouthpiece of God. If you wanted to hear from God, you went to the prophet, and the prophet would give a word from God.

Today, thank goodness, we have direct access to God as individuals. We can go directly to the Lord Jesus Christ who is our Master. And that is the second principle to regaining your spiritual edge. You need to realize the only One who can restore your edge once it is lost, is the Lord Jesus Himself.

You need to get your eyes off of men and get your eyes on the Master. Some people make a great mistake because they have their eyes on men. You will always be disappointed if your eyes are on men instead of on the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is only One who can help you regain your spiritual edge, and that is Jesus Christ. No man or woman can take His place.

So today, put your eyes on the Master. Cry out to Him to help you regain your spiritual edge.
