…Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” (2 Kings 5:10)

Naaman was the commander of the army of the king of Syria. He was a great man who won battles for his country. But, he was a leper, a limiting and degrading disease. As one might expect, he did all he could to overcome his ailment, all to no avail.

One day, a female servant in his household suggested that he go to Israel, her country, and meet a Prophet named Elisha who could cure him. She gave her advice through Naaman’s wife! One thing then led to another, and he did as advised.

Naaman met the prophet in Israel and expected him to do some magic or make some landmark pronouncements before his healing could take place. But the man of God did none of both. He did not even come out to meet him face to face. He simply sent words to Naaman thus:

Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.”

Naaman felt slighted and wondered why he should wash in River Jordan while his country had better rivers. He refused to do as told and went away in a rage. But his servants urged him to change his mind.

He later did and washed seven times in the Jordan, and his flesh became like that of a little child. His problem was solved once and for all! ‘Go and wash’ was a clear instruction to Naaman, which He obeyed and got healed.

It should come to your mind, too, at any time God tells you to do something. Are you having some issues in your life right now? Are they so bad that you can’t even discuss them with anyone?

And have you done all you could to resolve them without success? If you have, now is the time to approach God for help. He will tell you what to do. Is He asking you to change your job for a new one?

Is the Lord asking you to accept a marriage proposal from someone? Is He telling you to acquire a new skill or start a new business? Is He nudging you to write a book, compose a song, or produce a movie? Is God asking you to set up a ministry or serve Him in a specific way? ETC.

If He is, He wants to solve your problem once and for all. He wants you to move from where you are to where He wants you to be, that is, a better place. Please, obey him! GO AND WASH!! Maybe you ‘washed’ before, but things haven’t changed for you; don’t worry, ‘WASH’ again.

If you do, before long, you will have rest (Matthew 11:28), safety (Deuteronomy 20:4), plus joy (Isaiah 35:10). You will have strength and peace too (Psalm 29:11). And God will heal your broken heart (Psalm 147:3). He will promote you (Psalm 75:6-7 (KJV)), and you will prosper, for that is His wish for you (3 John 2).

Not only that, but your children will become mighty and blessed (Psalm 112:1-2 (NIV)), and you will also be called blessed (Malachi 3:12), in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Jesus is Lord!
