“But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, Indeed, I said to myself, He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.”
2 Kings 5:11
Here we see Naaman the Syrian who has leprosy and desires to be healed, but he wants it to be done his way grand and ceremonial. When it doesn’t happen he gets angry, his real sin here is pride which we all suffer from at one time or the other!
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: GOD RESISTS THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.”
Remember this as you go out into the day making comments like if everyone drove like me the roads would be great! If everyone loved and worshipped like me the world would be amazing! Part of pride is making everything about us, It’s all about me! Realize it’s not!
“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.”
The greatness of the LORD is unending, the more you search the greater it gets! Don’t get caught up in the leprosy of life (pride), But instead get caught up in the LORD. Have a blessed day doing things His way!
