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. 2 Kings 5: 11
Could your perspective or your expectations be getting in the way of God’s perfect will for your life? God desired to heal Naaman of his leprosy yet Naaman got angry with God’s proposed method. It didn’t align with Naaman’s idea of the way things should go, the way things should be done in his life.
My life is not my own but I’m living the life He gave me.
Lord make me mindful of how I might be letting my perspective and my expectations get in the way of what You might be doing or want to do in my life. I don’t want to beg for Your permissive will, I want to be submissive to Your perfect will. Please increase my faith with ever increasing trust in You.
