2 Kings 5:5-8
So he (Naaman) departed and took with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, and ten changes of clothing. Then he brought the letter to the king of Israel, which said,
Now be advised, when this letter comes to you, that I have sent Naaman my servant to you, that you may heal him of his leprosy.
And it happened, when the king of Israel read the letter, that he tore his clothes and said, “Am I God, to kill and make alive, that this man sends a man to me to heal him of his leprosy? Therefore please consider, and see how he seeks a quarrel with me.”
So it was, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, “Why have you torn your clothes? Please let him come to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.”
When Naaman the leper acted on the advice of his Jewish servant to go and seek healing in Israel, he met with two very different reactions: The King of Israel started to sweat and to panic, because he couldn’t heal him. Elisha the prophet, however, was cool and in control. He didn’t even get up from his chair to deal with the situation, because he knew he was graced to deal with it effectively. And so he did.
Have you ever presented a problem to someone who was not graced to handle it? Without even trying to, you stir up trouble. The King of Israel thought that Naaman’s request was a trick to draw his nation into war and acted like Naaman was an enemy. He only wanted to get help, but he ended up creating a mess.
If you are not graced for certain issues it creates a huge problem. Many Christians only know grace as the means by which they can be saved, but there are far more applications of grace than salvation alone. The multi-faceted grace of God is all about that specific ability to handle a challenge that would otherwise be too hard for you.
My prayer for you is that God would release grace into the situations where you need it the most because things have been perplexing you for a long time. Maybe you have a child that the school system has labelled delinquent, yet with the right grace, that child would blossom and thrive. Maybe you need promotion and open doors and everyone else gets opportunity by conniving and maligning their way there, yet with the grace of God, while others are sweating, you will walk right in.
Don’t attempt to handle issues the same way as the world, by getting slicker and more manipulative. There is no need because grace is available to get the job done God’s way.
When you know that you have a flow of grace in your life, you can be like the Shunamite woman who, when looking at her dead son, could still say, “All is well.” Because she knew that the same anointing that gave her the son, would also raise him back to life.
Grace for sweatless victories is released this year. You will not have to endure drama and confusion over the issues that are troubling you, because this year God will give you grace for your family, your business, your boss, your children, and every other affair of your life. There will be grace to handle finances, deal with health challenges and understand people so as to bring out the best in them. Things that have stayed unresolved for years are about to break loose in your life. Receive the grace you need by faith TODAY!
Heavenly Father, thank you for the multifaceted grace that you have released towards me. Right now I release my faith for the specific grace I need for the impossible situations of my life.
By faith I declare that instead of drama, all is well. Instead of fear and sickness and brokenness and strife I enjoy sweatless victories because your grace makes the difference. Thank you, Lord for massive turnarounds this year because of your grace. In Jesus’ name!
