“Seize the Moment”

June 10, 2018 ()

Bible Text: 2 Kings 4: 13-20 |

As we continue to look at Namaan's experience with receiving deliverance from his leprosy, we find that Namaan almost missed his moment.

So often you and I are faced with God orchestrated moments that we miss for numerous reasons. Sometimes we are just not ready for what God will do in our lives and we miss a great opportunity. While at other times, maybe the timing just isn't right and we realize afterward that I should have taken advantage of the moment. Then there are those times that we just outright blow it and hope that one day God will give us another shot.

The reality is that God wants us to seize those special God moments in our lives so He can move us from where we are to where He wants us to be. However, in order to seize those moments, it requires interpretation, realization, and dedication to understand and embrace what God has for us. Namaan had the help of others to assist in recognizing his God moment and not allowing it to pass. He also realized who was responsible for the moment of transformation. Finally, Namaan needed to be dedicated because someone (Gehazi) was out to take advantage of Namaan's good fortune.
