[The Glory Unveiled]
Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage. ( 2 Kings 5:12 )
Like Naaman, the single reason for the delayed breakthroughs, blessings and opportunities in the lives of many people is enshrouded in this verse of scripture. Many people have predefined how the solution to their problems should come about and they wait for years in anticipation of that miracle to come to them through that door of their imagination and creation. It is like they stay all their lives in wait that their answers will come through a particular door and until something comes from that door, they feel it is not God. Prophetic instructions are supposed to be followed to the letter without editing. Unless prophetic instructions are followed to the letter, instant results may be delayed. God’s ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not like ours, so whatever comes from God to us, whether it makes sense or not, just do it. When Jesus told the servants at the wedding in Cana to fill the wine-holding pots with water, they might have wondered if Jesus knew exactly what was needed for the occasion, but Mary told them to do whatever He tells them [even if it seem senseless—implied] (see John2:1-10). Naaman delayed his healing because he thought he could have customized his healing to suit his understanding but it failed. Has God instructed you through His word or [genuine] prophet, then the distance between you and the fulfillment of that word is your action. Act upon God’s word!
Prayer_Bead: Father in Heaven, thank you for showing me through your word that I should submit to your word for genuine results.
