It is important to observe that the Hebrew maid that saved Naaman was a captive. She was a product of warfare. She was a result of Naaman's involvement in battle. Naaman may have come home with scars of battle but he also came back with a maid from Israel. His battles may have taken something from him, but he also took something out his battles. What Naaman took out of his battles was what laid the foundation for his healing and restoration.
Like Naaman,we often face battles in different spheres of our lives. We face battles in our health, finances, families, marriages, careers, businesses and academics etc. Our battles often leave us in sorrow, depression, fear, loss of confidence and doubt etc. Sometimes, our lives are sad reflections of injuries that the battles of life has bestowed on us. Unlike Naaman, we often fight battles and end up with scars but without spoils.
Today hear God's counsel to us: We need to take a Treasure out of every battle we may face in life. We need to frustrate the devil by taking something positive out of every negative circumstance we may be facing. We need to learn a positive lesson out of every adverse experience that comes our way. We should not allow ourselves to fight a loosing for nothing battle.
We need to build more confidence with unwavering faith, resilience, maturity, self control, joy, Peace and love out of our destined battles. Even when our battles don't come out with material benefits, we still need to seek to glean Spiritual lessons and deep life principles from it.
We should not let the battles of life make our life a trashcan, we need to take a treasure out of every challenge we may be facing!
Pray with me,"Lord, I choose to take treasures out of my destined battles in Jesus name". Amen.
