Naaman (4)

‘…He was…a mighty man…but a leper…’ 2 Kings 5:1 NKJV Before leaving the story of Naaman, let’s observe two more things: (1) Everybody needs help. Not just the down-‘n’-outers, but the up-‘n’-outers. Being a five-star general doesn’t mean a thing when someone’s dying of leprosy. ‘But they wouldn’t listen to someone like me,’ you say. …Read More

Naaman (3)

‘…He was…a mighty man…but a leper…’ 2 Kings 5:1 NKJV When God gives you an answer, don’t argue and don’t rationalise. Just do what He tells you-and you’ll come up clean. Naaman’s pride almost cost him his life. When he left Elisha’s house he was angry because Elisha hadn’t come out to speak with him …Read More

Naaman (2)

‘…He was…a mighty man…but a leper…’ 2 Kings 5:1 NKJV Naaman had a problem; a unique one. In recalling this story Jesus said, ‘…Many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman…’ (Luke 4:27 NKJV). It’s easier to believe God for something you’ve seen …Read More

Naaman (1)

‘…He was…a mighty man…but a leper…’ 2 Kings 5:1 NKJV In examining the story of Naaman the leper, we begin by looking at his condition. ‘Naaman, commander of the army of…Syria, was a great…man…but a leper.’ (2 Kings 5:1 NKJV ) In spite of his past victories and present honours, he had a hidden problem …Read More

In Harness with Jesus

‘Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me…’ Matthew 11:29 NKJV Some of us find it easy to trust God for health, yet we stay awake all night worrying about finances. Or we trust Him for finances, but not to direct our steps. Jesus says, ‘Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me.’ …Read More

Spiritual Distance

‘…The people stood afar off, but Moses drew near…where God was.’ Exodus 20:21 NKJV Moses alone knew what God’s presence felt like, what His voice sounded like and what His radiant glory looked like. And apparently the people of Israel were happy to leave it that way. They said to Moses, ‘You speak with us…but …Read More

Are You Feeling Inadequate?

‘…Our sufficiency is from God.’ 2 Corinthians 3:5 NKJV God will never give you an assignment that does not require His involvement. He calls us: ‘…Not according to our works [ability], but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus…’ (2 Timothy 1:9 NKJV) When God gives you …Read More

The Blood of Jesus

‘…The blood…makes atonement for the soul…’ Leviticus 17:11 NKJV Jeffrey Ebert says: ‘When I was five years old, before factory-installed seat belts and automobile airbags, my family was driving home at night on a two-lane country road. I was sitting on my mother’s lap when another car driven by a drunk driver swerved into our …Read More

Paul’s Thoughts on Temptation

‘Get rid of the old yeast…’ 1 Corinthians 5:7 NIV Paul gives us four thoughts to keep in mind when it comes to temptation: (1) Where we consider ourselves strongest, is where we’re least likely to prepare for attack. One man tells of getting involved in an affair. He recalls a conversation he had with …Read More

Don’t Strike Back!

‘…If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.’ Matthew 5:39 NLT Do you feel taken for granted? You thought they cared about you, but they were just ‘using’ you. That’s what happens when we put our lives into the hands of people. Men and women are not creators; they can’t …Read More
