Supplying not enough surrender in the era of youth’s capability?
My father, if the prophet told you to do something extraordinary, would you not do it? All the more since he told you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” So Naaman went down and plunged into the Jordan seven times, according to the word of the man of God. His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. Second Kings 5:13-14
Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place. Again, there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha the prophet; yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian. Luke 4:24,27
Second Kings 5:1-15, Psalm 42 & Luke 4:24-30
Imagine being told to go and wash yourself and you’d be clean of a disease that bursted upon your body like puss popping sores in the night causing fingers to die and your face to fall apart. It’s an ugly sight and takes a special person to minister to them and take care of them for the Glory of God the Father. Naaman was aching for cleanliness more than anything else. Could you follow the guide set forth in His Word to find this type of cleansing? I have felt like a little child this past weekend coming to Jesus on my knees crying like a baby needing a hug. We have the answers to life’s puzzling questions in a beauty we continually set a apart by misconception.
We think it’s too much too soon so we give too little too late supplying not enough surrender in the era of youth’s capability. When you find Truth with time to act instead of linger, you listen to the Prophets of Old discovering the type of person it takes to hold a leper or treat a child with no hands. I met this type of man over the weekend in his walk to Emmaus. After a couple of years of living in half mile area of concrete, casualties and corpses, this man takes a break to seek further support completing his journey home finding men to lift him up in prayer in a weekend retreat. I salute this man who I prayed with and embraced as a Brother in Christ.
I finish now returning at 1 AM from flights home to write and share the fire that had me singing out loud in the Charlotte Airport awaiting my flight with arms raised above my head sounding like the loving Jesus Freak I am singing aloud and dancing. I was still humming the tunes of God when I boarded the plane to find one of the men who attended looking up at me taking the words right out of my mouth from row 1 in First Class with voice lifted, “Jesus Christ is Risen!” I spoke out, “He is Risen Indeed!” both of us smiling being amazed that we were on the same flight. God is so amazing.
The Mountains of Sudan are being terrorized by a government seeking to convert tribes of people to be Muslim dropping bombs on the villages tearing hands off little boys destroying the legs of others. I salute Dr. Tom Catena who vigorously doctors and directs Mother of Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. He operates with aging medical equipment dealing with cases that’ll break the heart of any man, woman or child.
He is a testament of God’s faith, hope and love living for and in humanity’s charity true servants of God seek to live and enjoy. His efforts go unnoticed and his risk is goes beyond dangerous protected my his mothers prayers of angels surrounding his hospital he lives and work 24 hours a day committed to God’s Love. Can you help him? See my sight for further information on how you can help a man living God’s Work. Today’s poem is in honor of him below. God, watch over him. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to act in faith of Your love. Welcome prayers for Carolina Emmaus #2. Prayers of safe travel for the Miami Team. Praying for Kairos. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. LORD, keep our fire burning within us. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
