It’s such a joy to be your hostess today!
The purpose of WFW is share God's word (no famous quotes or literature...only the word of God)
In the midst of receiving some disappointing news at St. Jude last week, (changes in my son's scans), I came upon this devotional that encouraged me so much. No matter what we may be facing in life, we can rise above the circumstances, and be the “great” men and women the Lord has purposed for us to be.
The Bible says that Naaman was a “great…man, but a leper.”
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” (Lk. 4:27 NKJV).
God was about to make Naaman a “greater man” through his time of testing. Whenever God is going to take us to another level, He often permits us to get into predicaments without any human solutions.
When He wants us to have greater influence, He often permits us to face greater challenges.
Before you can be exceptional, you must first work to develop a faith that can believe God for the impossible, and trust what He says regardless of the odds.
We must stop focusing on the problem and start focusing on God.
In the face of all the odds, Naaman believed God, and received his miracle. How about you? (By Rick Godwin)
