Naaman was a leper. He was a commander of the Aramean army. He was a very important person. when he heard that there was a prophet who could heal him, he went to see him. Elisha gave him God's message. Go and dip seven times in the Jordan reiver.
He was totally upset. Bathe in the filthy Jordan? No way. His officers chided him,“Sir,if the prophet had told you to do something very difficult, wouldn’t you have done it? So you should certainly obey him when he says simply, ‘Go and wash and be cured!’” (2 Kings 5:13, NLT). He did and he was.
But, it took trust in a God he was not familiar with. It meant that to recieve the blessing, he would have to pass the test of trusting God. He did.
How about you? Is God testing you to trust Him in some area? Are you? Will you?
