A Miracle Shown To Naaman

2023-11-01 02:08

In the Book of Kings, we can see a man named Naaman, who was the captain of the army of the king of Aram. Even though he was a great man, he was suffering from leprosy. By the suggestion of a slave girl he decided to visit the land of Israel to see the prophet of God Elisha, who was claimed to be filled with the Holy Spirit and could perform many miraculous things.

When he visited Elisha, he thought that the prophet would do something miraculous to cure his disease such as praying to God, stretching his hands over the leprosy. Or he might have expected that the prophet would tell him to do some extremely difficult job to be cured. However, when he went there, the prophet even did not bother to come out to meet him in person. He just sent him his servant and told him to go to the Jordan River and wash his body seven times.

When he heard this, he got angry and decided to leave the place without doing what the prophet had told him to do. He thought it was a foolish thing to wash in the Jordan River. If he had to wash, there were cleaner rivers in his own country and he could be healed better there. However, his wise servant persuaded him to obey the words of the prophet.

2 Kings 5:13 But Naaman’s servants went to him and talked to him. They said, “Father, if the prophet told you to do some great thing, you would do it, isn’t that right? But he said, ‘Wash, and you will be pure and clean.’” 14 So Naaman did what the man of God said. He went down and dipped himself in the Jordan River seven times, and he became pure and clean. His skin became soft like the skin of a baby.

When he obeyed the words of the prophet, his disease could be healed. What does this story teach us about? This story clearly shows us that we can be blessed when we obey the words of God. When we look at the bible, we often meet people who received incomprehensible words from God. God told Moses to stretch out his hands over the water and the Red Sea got divided, opening ways for the people to cross.

God told Gideon to fight against 135,000 Median Soldiers with 300 men; moreover, with torches and trumpets, not with swords and spears. When they obeyed, they could see the miracle of defeating the enemy completely. How about Joshua? God told him to turn around the city of Jericoh to destroy the fortified city. When he obeyed, he could see the miracle of the city being totaled to the ground.

All these faced moments to test their own faith toward God. They overcome the test and could achieve great things. Sometimes, God might command us to do something that we cannot understand with our own knowledge. At this moment, we have to let go of our own thought and idea. When we obey the words of God, we will also be able to see miracles.

This might sound difficult to do. When we think of God who planned the end even from the beginning and fulfills everything according to his plan, however, we will come to realize that the way of God is the best. God already knows everything and He knows what is best for us. Therefore, what we have to do is to obey God, remembering that God has the best answer for everything. Then God will allow us to see great things achieved through our obedience as He had shown to those who obeyed him.

    I learned that there are so many reasons and evidences that we cannot consider that the bible is only just a book about that we cannot check the truthfulness. I believe the bible because I saw so many evidences and prophecies that came out true as the time passed. I really hope everyone who see this article to try to learn and think about the bible which testifies the passover is the way to eternal life. That’s the bible and God is trying to tell us.
