Elisha & Naaman
Read: 2 Kings 5:1-14
Think: There are things in your life that probably need to be healed: a bad attitude, conflict with your parents, a struggle with anxiety and depression, or constant drama with friends. What is the thing you know God is asking you to do to be healed, but that you are being stubborn about? If you know that God can heal you, what is holding you back from “stepping in the river” just like Naaman did?
Hope: Jesus said, “… if you have faith as small as a mustard seed…nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NIV) There is no need to feel shame if your faith feels weak. God specializes in being strong when we are weakest.
Pray: God, I have doubts and struggles, help my unbelief! Bring healing to the areas of my life that I need it most. Give me the faith to trust and obey.
Apply: Take over someone else’s chore today: walk the dog, do the laundry, fold the clothes, wash the counters, etc.
