Elisha told Naaiman the army officer with leprosy to go and deep himself seven times into river Jordan to receive his healing. He did not add any value to what the prophet instructed him at first. He thought why the man of God would ask him to go and immerse himself in river Jordan while there were bigger rivers than river Jordan in his land to do so. The moment his servant convinced him to do what Elisha said and he did, he received his healing. God of those days is still the same God of today. All we need to do is to put more value to the things of the Lord for his glory to fall on us. Seek for the presence of the Lord in your life and you shall be blessed.
The Ark of God symbolised the presence of God among the people of Israel. When the Ark touched the river Jordan, the water divided into two and there was dry ground for the Israelites to walk through to the other side. Are you not tired of going through the same problems year in year out? Even three hundred and sixty-nine (369) years after the destruction of Shiloh, people still go there and get their break-through signifying the continuous presence of God there. Let Church members learn to value and put their faith in God for his glory to shine on us always.
