The four lepers: Miracles outside the gate-2
2 Kings 7:8 “And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid [it]; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence [also], and went and hid [it].”
2 Kings 7:9 “Then they said one to another…that we may go and tell the king’s household.”
Beloved, I have news for you; your own miracle could just be outside your gate as well. What gifts, talents and ideas have you abandoned and termed useless? Your own could even be a friend you feel is useless and can never amount to anything.
Today, I want you to think back and reconsider some of the things you have treated with disdain and abandoned. I believe the Holy Spirit is calling us to take a second, third, if not fourth look at those things we have considered leprous.
God can use anything to get our miracles across to us if only we will let him. Let’s take a look at the case of Peter:
Acts 10:13 “And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.”
Acts 10:14 “But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.”
Acts 10:15 “And the voice [spake] unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, [that] call not thou common.”
God brought a miracle to Peter outside his gate but he refused to embrace it. Peter even had the effrontery to tell God he will not “open his gate”. He was simoly saying what he has pushed outside the gate must remain outside the gate!
God said He has made them clean Peter said an emphatic NO. He refused to budge at the prompting of the Spirit of God.
If you read the story of the four lepers down in 2 Kings 7, you will discover the king of Israel also took the same position as Peter.
To be continued…
