“And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.” 2 Kings 5:3Text — 2 Kings 5:1-5
Naaman was a soldier in the Syrian army; he was a high-ranking officer. He commanded great authority, but he had an ailment – leprosy; he was a leper. His army went to the land of Israel, fought and defeated its army and took some people captives.
A little maid (a young girl) was among them. He took her to his house to serve his wife. The little girl knew the power of the God of Israel and she did not forget or hide her faith in Him. She told her mistress that there was a prophet in Israel who could heal her husband of the leprosy. The information got to Naaman, he went to Israel and received his healing through Elisha the prophet of God.
Do you hide your faith in God from people who do not know Him? Be an ambassador for Christ like that little maid; proclaim the power of Jesus to save and to heal anywhere you find yourself. It will also make your faith to grow. Pray for the sick, share what you have with the needy, encourage those who are sad and be a worthy example to others. God will honour you.
Prayer for today
Father, please help me to proclaim Your power wherever I find myself.
