“She’s a woman on a mission, placed there by God to represent Him and to speak His word boldy and without fear.”
The past few days have been fast, furious and full of activity. All of which I am grateful for but it has made it tough to find time to write what I am thankful for daily.
Not that it matters to you all much as I know you are busy with your own lives, but for me I like to follow through with these goals I set for myself.
So I’m combining a few days of gratitude into one post and wanted to share this devotional a friend shared with me.
The devotion was called Naaman’s Little Maid.
To give you a little back story, Naaman was the commander of the Army of the king if Aram (2 kings 5:1-14) He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the Lord has given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy.
His maid was the one who told him if only you would go see the prophet who is in Samaria, you would be healed of your leprosy.
Because of this maid being at the right place at the right time doing what she was supposed to do that day and speaking with boldness to her master he was able to get healed.
Like many of you, most of my days are filled with exercise, cooking, cleaning, homeschooling and running errands. However, yesterday I had the chance to go to a meeting at church and happened to get their as they were praying for a young boy to get healed.
I asked what he needed healing from and he had gut issues the doctors have not been able to determine what is causing them. Something in my spirit woke up and I very humbly but boldly asked if I could speak a word over his life and pray for him.
You see, my daughter Corrie as many of you know had liver issues which put us on the GI floor in the hospital and into a world of learning all about the gut and internal organs. Corrie was healed and because of that I have a healing testimony to give away and I know the Lord as Jehovah Rapha the Lord who heals. I also have some knowledge now on the gut and resources to connect families with on gut healing. Getting to pray over that young man was an extraordinary outcome of the ordinary assignments I was doing that day.
I’m telling you all this because I didn’t know it then but during that season of walking through our healing journey God was teaching me things that I am now able to use to encourage others. He gave me an ordinary assignement of being a mother to a medically needy child which led to many life lessons and an extraordinary outcome of healing & having a little world changer because of her story.
So like this devotional says, “take courage, my sister. Don’t be intimidated by by those around you. Don’t allow subservient positions or poor wages to stifle your lips of praise. Be renewed in your mind. You are in the right place at the right time. God will use you as only he can. Listen carefully. The master conductor is about to give you your cue.”
Today my prayer for you if you made it to the end of this post, be grateful for the ordinary assignments you have been given as they truly can lead to some extraordinary outcomes.
