Moment of Wisdom – A step of faith – 3
Scripture Reference: “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! For he would heal him of his leprosy.” – 2 Kings 5:3
Whoever thought a maid would be instrumental in changing a general’s life. In 2nd Kings Chapter 5, Naaman was introduced as the commander of the army of the king of Syria who was great and honourable. He was also said to be a mighty man of valour. But he had a problem, he was a leper.
Well, that says a lot. This highly placed government official had an embarrassing disease and he must have had spent so much money just to be healed.
A day however came that his wife’s maid suggested he go to the prophet Elisha. I think ‘suggested’ is an understatement. She was so sure that she actually said “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! For he would heal him of his leprosy.” (Verse 3)
That took a lot of courage and guts from her, but after the master had done what she said and came back whole, we can only imagine the kind of reward she would have received from the general. This only happened because she seized a moment to be courageous and help her master.
Daily digest: Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
Prayer: Dear Lord, give me the help you have promised to those who ask for it, that I may overcome my fears and go bravely forward.
