Daily D – 2 Kings 5:10
Then Elisha sent him a messenger, who said, “Go wash seven times in the Jordan and your skin will be restored and you will be clean.”
2 KINGS 5:10 (CSB)
Now and again, God speaks so clearly it is hard not to hear his voice. Sometimes we make things more complicated than they are. We want to be sure, really, really sure, that we heard God correctly. Living with wisdom and power, as Jesus taught in Matthew 7:24-27, is a matter of hearing and obeying. Somebody ought to write a song called Trust and Obey. That could help us internalize God’s message.
Do not look for these Daily D entries next Tuesday and Wednesday, and maybe even a bit longer than that. Neck surgery is on the schedule for Tuesday morning. This will include a one-night stay in the hospital. The doctor promises relief from neck pain immediately. The full recovery, of course, will take a bit longer.
So what was my Bible reading today? This text is about healing. Then I read Psalm 34. If you haven’t read it lately, take a look at it. You will see why it is encouraging to me today. Verse 4 is so, so good: “I sought the LORD, and he answered me and rescued me from all my fears.”
The reading in Matthew today is from chapter 8. Verses 1-4 are about healing. Verses 5-13 are about healing. Verses 14-17 are about healing. Get the message?
* What is God saying to you today?
* How will you not only hear but obey?
* What will be the result of living with wisdom and power?
I will trust God for healing.
Our Father, thank you for encouraging my heart. Thank you for calming my fears. Thank you for healing my body. You are better to me than I would be to myself. Amen.

John 9:8, 9 His neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar said, “Isn’t this the one who used to sit begging?” Some said, “He’s the one.” Others were saying, “No, but he looks like him.” He kept saying, “I’m the one.” (CSB)
Luke 6:43-45 “A good tree doesn’t produce bad fruit; on the other hand, a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. A good person produces good out of the good stored up in his heart. An evil person produces evil out of the evil stored up in his heart, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.” (CSB)
John 8:31, 32 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (CSB)
