2Kings 6:4 “So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.”

2Kings 6:5 “But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed.”

…From yesterday…

A cry for help is all that is needed to bail us out of any calamity.

This cry can also be called prayer. It is a master key that can turn situations around in our favour with alacrity. Hear these:

Psalms 102:2 “Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.”

Psalms 91:15 “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.”

Isaiah 30:19 “You people who live in Jerusalem will not weep any more. The LORD is compassionate, and when you cry to him for help, he will answer you.” (GNT)

We have this assurance in God that whenever we call to him, he answers us. The poor man’s cry may have been out of desperation or frustration, probably that was why he used the phrase, Alas, master! The word “alas” means unfortunately, regrettably, sadly or painfully. His cry sounds hopeless but he sent it in a God-ward direction.

As a prophet he knew the Old Testament law about restitution and the teaching that whenever a man lost or damaged something that he had borrowed, he had to replace it and make the loss good to the lender.

But hear me, no crisis is ever hopeless so long as we cry out to God for help in the midst of it. A cry for help is an invitation for supernatural intervention.

Any man that does not know how to call out for help is definitely a proud man! Arrogance is what makes a man to keep quiet when he needs help.

Psalms 50:15 “And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”

Beloved, cry if you must but wipe your face and speak!
