2 Kings 5 is a wonderful account of Naaman the leper being cleansed. There is so much in this chapter, but what strikes me today is that God used a little girl to lead Naaman to the truth. Maybe it’s because I am surrounded by children this week that I’m thinking about the great work that God does in children’s lives.
Now the Syrians on one of their raids had carried off a little girl from the land of Israel, and she worked in the service of Naaman's wife. She said to her mistress, "Would that my lord were with the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy." So Naaman went in and told his lord, "Thus and so spoke the girl from the land of Israel."
God uses children who know the truth! This little girl knew that God could heal Naaman and she told them that. God honored her faith and the great leader was changed! Marvelous.
I can’t describe the joy that Craig and I have working with the young people God has given us this week. Listening intently. Learning verses. Conversations about the Lord. I’m enjoying watching some of these young people grow in the Lord Jesus in such a powerful way in a short couple years. God is going to use them in their generation to be His witnesses! I know it!
What a great God we have. That he would use any one of us to point people to him is amazing. A little girl. Wonderful! Maybe you today?
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
