2 Kings 5:9-14 NKJV

Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, “Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’ Are not the Abanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them and be clean?” So he turned and went away in a rage. And his servants came near and spoke to him, and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do something great, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.“


Naaman the commander of the army of the king of Syria was a great and honorable man before the king for he had obtained victory in war even-though he was a leper. When the Syrians had a conquest in Samaria, they captured a young Israelite girl and brought her home. The girl noticed that Naaman was leprous and informed his wife of the prophet Elisha who was able to heal him by God’s power. Later when Elisha informed Naaman to go and wash at river Jordan seven times, at first he though it was a joke and a ridiculous proposal for the waters of Damascus were all better than the rivers of Israel. Upon persuasion by his servants, Naaman humbled himself and washed seven times as per the prophets decree. He received his healing and restoration, and his skin became like that of a little child. Imagine if Naaman would have been proud and refused to submit and wash? Often times have we heard and experienced God working in mysterious ways in our lives and loved ones when we humble ourselves before Him. God our Master healer and deliverer and can use anyone, anything or any situation to heal and restore us and those who are lost and suffering among us. We are called to submit ourselves to God in humility and we will receive our healing and requests. Further, God will use us to cause transformation just like He used prophet Elisha for the glory of His name.


How Great are You Lord in all the heavens and the earth. There is none like You Lord, Your greatness transcends all things. How Great is Your name, You are feared among all other gods. Like You healed Naaman, may You heal us, our families, communities and nation. May You restore all those who are sick and suffering among us even as the doctors are on strike. May You cause calm in the health sector dear Jesus. May You comfort all those who are broken hearted. May You deliver all the street children from the oppression of the devil and grant them breakthroughs in their lives. May You deliver us from all the chains of the enemy and lead us to a victorious life in all spheres for the glory and honor of Your name. May You use us in our ministries and vocations to cause transformation by Your power in Your name of Jesus Christ. Yours is the greatness, the power, glory, dominion, victory and the majesty dear Lord. Indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours and You exalt Yourself as head over all. We praise You and exult You now and forever. Amen
