Don’t Avoid the Water

I’m Dr. Bob and for just a mentoring minute I want to give you what could be some timely advice. Here it is. Don’t avoid the water. What am I saying? Well, let me take you back to the days of Elijah. One day a great and powerful warrior knocked on Elijah’s door. His name was Naaman and he was afflicted with leprosy. All Naaman’s might, power and authority could not help him. He came looking for a miracle. Elijah would not even see him, but sent instructions through Gahazi, his servant to go wash in the river. Naanman was furious. He wanted his miracle and he wanted it his way. Have you known anyone like that? …After a lot of angry complaining, Naaman humbled himself and obeyed. When he went into the water, God’s healing touch cleansed him of his leprosy. What am I saying? Sometimes you have to surrender your pride to obedience and let God do things His way. Perhaps your miracle needs a bit of humility to put it into motion? If you know Christ, you have already been washed in His miracle-working blood. Now go wash off your pride. You might find your miracle is just on the other side of your obedience. I’m Dr. Bob. Contact me at Dr.Bob@mentoringministry.com and let me know how your swim in obedience felt.
