In 1 Kings 5 Naaman went to the prophet Elisha to be healed from his leprosy.
2 Kings 5:10-11 says:
Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”
But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. (NIV)
Many people today are like Naaman. They want a breakthrough from God, but only expect their prayers to be answered supernaturally. They overlook the importance of their own obedience.
God does work supernaturally, but still requires us to take action.
Are you praying for a job? God wants you to put in many applications as you’re praying. Are you praying for good health? God wants you to eat properly and exercise as you pray for your health. Are you praying to get out of debt? You have to work hard and manage money wisely as you pray for help.
Whatever breakthrough you’re praying for, make sure to take the needed actions. Otherwise, you might miss out.
