No Doubt About It

2 Kings 5 has the account of a young Jewish girl who becomes a slave in Aram. She is considered "small and insignificant", but still speaks up and tells her master Naaman about the prophet Elisha, who can heal him of his leprosy. Her bold faith and confident contentment in the Lord stand in contrast to Naaman's responses when he finally meets Elisha. This study shows that even when we feel insignificant or overlooked, the Lord can still use us in mighty ways, having impact even in the small things.

No one is immune when it comes to temptation, and the increase in visual media has made us more susceptible to the danger. Thousands of years ago, King David made a series of poor decisions because he didn't turn away when confronted with temptation. Alone and bored, he allowed his heart to be corrupted, and then continued to make the problem worse while ignoring the Lord's conviction. His failures bring us to practical conclusions about how we can guard our heart and mind.

The account of David and Goliath is always portrayed as a huge win for the underdog. But David actually had a tremendous, unbeatable advantage. He had an unshakable conviction in the power and help of the Lord, as he stood to defend Him. This conviction sharply contrasted not only with Goliath, but with the Israelite people. David's example helps identify 4 convictions that define God's people--those who love and fully trust the Lord.

In cooking, a reduction is made when a sauce simmers at a low boil. This reduces it's volume by half, intensifying it's flavor. In Judges 7, we see this principle of reduction as the Lord subtracts Gideon's army from 32,000 to 300, to fight 120,000 Midianites. He does this to teach us 4 spiritual principles which remind us of His power, and teach us to rely on His strength and sufficiency.

Throughout the Bible, there are examples of a small object or decision having a huge spiritual impact. In the first message of the new series "Small", we look at the life-changing decision Esau made in selling his birthright for a bowl of stew. His impulsive choice revealed spiritual indifference that challenges us to evaluate our appreciation for the Lord's blessings, and our discipline to desire what is essential.

The Bible tells us that when we pray, we are to be bold, confident and unwavering, knowing the Lord will work. The extent to which we approach prayer with that kind of uncertainty depends on three factors--our purity, our dependence and our maturity. These influence whether we pray with an attitude of expectancy or entitlement. In Psalm 5, David models that we can "eagerly watch" for the Lord to work in wonderful ways when we pray with fully yielded faith.

It All Points To This

When the Lord leads us, He always has specific purposes which point away from us and toward His generous grace. Sometimes we can become discontented because we are uncomfortable with what it requires of us. But once we realize that He is leading every person toward spiritual birth and growth, it humbles and encourages us. So when we live in His power, and allow Him to stretch our faith, even trials become a place of blessing and joy. Because the only goal is for Him to receive all the glory He deserves.
