Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored, and you shall be clean. But Naaman was angry. - 2 Kings 5:10-11
So often we miss out on what God wants to do for us because He doesn't do it the way we think He should. We work up an idea in our minds about how He's going to heal us, deliver us, provide for us or give a blessing to us.
s stories; I thought maybe a famous preacher needed to lay hands on me. I was waiting on God to do something spectacular. I went to special meetings, I had all the elders lay hands, and I sat up in the middle of the night waiting on God to do something. Then a pastor friend of mine explained it was faith and to receive it took faith. s the way it will work for you. We think God is going to knock us off our feet with a blast of His power. When He doesn't, we let our faith drop and foul up what He had actually planned to do.
That's what Naaman did. He went to Elisha expecting to be healed in a particular way. When it didn't happen that way, the Bible says, he went away in a rage. Just imagine if the man with him had not convinced him to go to the Jordan. He would have never gotten healed. We like the spectacular, we like pomp and circumstance, we like rituals. s learn to walk by faith and receive what God has for us.
Don't let your own ideas of how God's going to work rob you of your healing or your deliverance or your prosperity. Just trust Him and let Him do things His way. He will work mightily in you. t give up trusting Him, have faith, His promises and His word always work.
