Memorise: “Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed; thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation” (Exo 15:13).

Read: 2 Kings 5:1-2

Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper” (2 Kings 5:1). This verse introduces Naaman in a beautiful way. He was a man that held great portfolio and was described in beautiful prose.

As we look at the story of Naaman, we want to quickly compare him with the Almighty God. Naaman was the captain of the Syrian host while God is the captain of the Host of Heaven (Psalm 24:8-10). He was captain over men – flesh while God is Lord over spirits and flesh. God is Lord over human and animal flesh.

“The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea” (Exodus 15:3-4 ). Naaman was powerful and could conquer nations by the backing of God’s power even when he never realized it. Victory came for Syria several times not because of Naaman’s wisdom or excellent credentials, but because of God’s help.

On the other hand, God can completely wipe out the armies of all nations in one day. With one angel, He wiped out the army of Senacherib in one night. This means with less than 5000 angels, the nations of the world could be wiped out in one night.

We learn here that God gives us victory over sicknesses, enemies and problems out of mercy even when we have not known Him. There were times we came across death situations but miraculously, He rescued us even though at the end, we gave the glory to ourselves or somebody else. A young boy went into the stadium one day. He had no knowledge of swimming. He did not follow the due process either.

He went to the junior swimming pool and got himself wet. Then he stole into the adult swimming pool and took a hurl. “Here I come!”. He thought he was smart for gaining access without paying. As he sank into the water, he tried to stand on his feet like he would in the junior pool but soon realized he had landed in the deepest part. He began to gulp water as he dipped in and out of the water.

He could not cry out for help the way he should. He was confused. He was drowning. But as God would have it, one of his cousins who was there came to his rescue. Today, he is a senior pastor in our church. But for God’s mercy, that could have been his end.

Reflect over several encounters with death from which God delivered you. Thank Him.

  7. i needed a word for my situation and got it thru this msg. may GOD continue to be with u daddy, IJN. Amen

  8. I am always bless with the Messages from Daddy, the only fear is that some of the RCCG Pastors specially here in Cameroon does not like to catch the humility of Papa Adeboye. They are breging other teaching from other congregations. I deeply regret that situation. specially here in Douala where once you come to church once they appoint you a Pastor in charge of a parish, it is not a good practice( The Parish in Kotto-Douala is not led by a humble pastor) those who are in charge should investigate and they will find something. It is only by his Mercy that some of us we are looking for other congregations to fellowship while we are following the messages of Daddy Adeboye by Television and internet.
