SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI

DATE: MONDAY MAY 17, 2021.

TOPIC: USING US AS WE ARE.

DEVOTIONAL READING:
2 KINGS 5:1-27

KEY VERSE: And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.
(2 Kings 5:2)

BIBLE CHARACTER:
YOUNG JEWISH GIRL

Life can take unexpected and painful turns. One little girl in Israel found herself a prize of war. She became a slave, the property of Naaman’s family. And yet the story that unfolds is contrary to what we might expect.

Instead of self-pity, we find her pitying her master; instead of wishing evil upon those who had captured her, she hoped for their well-being. She wasn’t crushed by her misfortune; she rose above it.

Naaman, this little girl’s master, was a successful Syrian commander but he was also a leper. In Israel, a person with leprosy was shunned. Sufferers were forced to announce their uncleanness to anyone who came near.

In simple faith, a little girl suggested to her mistress that Naaman ought to see the prophet of GOD in Samaria. She was sure Elisha would be able to bring about his healing. There must have been a note of conviction in her suggestion, because Naaman took her seriously. Eventually, he was healed by GOD.

Sometimes, all we can do is point people toward GOD. Yet that in itself accomplishes a great deal. The faith of one child set in motion a chain of events through which GOD received glory.

We should be alert to the same opportunities today. GOD can accomplish miracles with our small actions.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Young Or Old, God Is Willing To Use Us As We Are.

PRAYER POINTS.
1. O Lord, use me for your glory in the Name of Jesus Christ.
2. My father, redeem me from the hands of the wicked in Jesus Christ’s name.
3. Ancient of days, please, remember your covenant of life and grant me both physical and eternal life in Jesus Christ’s Name.

Be Lifted!
