TOPIC: Out of the Ordinary

TODAY’S READING

2 Kings 5:1-14

KEY VERSE: Naaman’s servants came up to him and spoke to him: “Our father, if the prophet had told you to do something difficult, wouldn’t you have done it? All he said to you was, ‘Wash and become clean.’” – 2 Kings 5:13 (CEB)

MESSAGE

When Elisha, the man of God, told Naaman what to do to be healed, Naaman initially refused to do it because it seemed so common. He was expecting an extraordinary healing and almost missed a miracle because the road to the miracle seemed unremarkable.

I know there have been times where I have missed out on positive changes because I didn’t want to do the ordinary things to make the extraordinary changes possible. Also, I wanted healing in my physical health, but I didn’t want to eat less and exercise more. I wanted advancement at work, but I didn’t really want to put in the extra time to make myself stand out.

I wanted a better relationship with my children, but I didn’t want to give up any of my time to make that happen. So many times I’ve failed to do the things God has called me to do because I was waiting for a miraculous proclamation. I have learned, however, that things won’t get better as a result of grand gestures but rather with the dedicated daily efforts of Christians who refuse to give up the faith.
