The Impossible Take a little longer?

T he slogan of the U S armed Forces is :The difficult we do immediately: the impossible take a little longer. The original version is reputed to have come from Charles A. de Calonne.This seems like a  claim to instill confidence. However, in the Bible we do have recordings of many such impossibilities. I like this one below about what the famous prophet Elisha did.From 2 Kings 6:1-7  Contemporary English version   One day the prophets said to Elisha, "The place where we meet with you is too small. Why don't we build a new meeting place near the Jordan River? Each of us could get some wood, then we could build it."   "That's a good idea," Elisha replied, "get started."    "Aren't you going with us?" one of the prophets asked.   "Yes, I'll go," Elisha answered,and he left with them.   They went to the Jordan River and began chopping down trees. While one of the prophets was working, his ax head fell off and dropped into the water. "Oh!" he shouted. "Sir, I borrowed this ax."     "Where did it fall in?" Elisha asked. The prophet pointed to the place, and Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. The ax head floated to the top of the water.    "Now get it," Elisha told him. And the prophet reached in and grabbed it.
