Cured In the Water

So often, we complicate our own paths by holding onto expectations, rather than the task at hand. Naaman was highly regarded and influential as the general for the king of Aram. However, he needed to be cured of disease. After quite the journey, he’s told by Elisha, “Go and wash 7 times in the Jordan River.” Whether pride or expectation, Naaman refused to listen. Eventually, when he finally listened, he was cured. Maybe, we just need to let go of our own expectations in order to experience what God has in store.
