"Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored, and you shall be clean. But Naaman was angry" (2 Kings 5:10-11 AMP).

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Tim. 1:7)
Today's Confession: “God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of love, peace, and a sound mind.”

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.
Are you one of those who have trouble sleeping at night? Perhaps just this morning you said, “I was up the whole night — my boy was running a high fever,” or “I slept for only two hours — I was awake polishing up my presentation,” or “I couldn’t sleep at all — I was worried about the bills that are piling up.”

...Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
Notice that Jesus didn't say to the two blind men, "Well, because you are sincere and honest, go your way and see." No, He didn't say that.
"My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them [the Words of God] not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.... Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" (Prov. 4:20-21, 23).
So many people walk around saying things like, "Well, I'm just so tired...I'm so weak...Things are looking so bad." Then suddenly, they think they're going to jerk their faith out from under the table and raise the dead with it.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
(1 John 1:1)
The Word of God is alive. God has given us a written record of the things He has spoken to mankind, so we may know Him and have a relationship with Him. But is His Word just a letter printed on paper and left for us to figure out what it means?
No, God's Word is actually God Himself. That means that everything we read in the Word of God, God stands behind and is ready to perform today.
by Joyce Meyer
Hebrews 12:1-3 says to run the race with endurance, looking to Jesus "so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds" (v.3).
Do you look at a sink full of dirty dishes and want to faint in your mind? Does the thought of mowing the lawn get you depressed? Do you dread making a particular phone call or even a party you are planning?
God has taught me that to enjoy life, I must learn how to enjoy everything.
You may ask, "Now, how could I enjoy cleaning house?" It all depends on your mindset.
by Tim Davidson
"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life."
(John 6:63 NASB)
Do you know that your flesh does not accomplish or benefit anything from a spiritual viewpoint? Naturally speaking, our flesh can push and strive, groan and sacrifice to get ahead in the eyes of men. But when God considers those results He will say that it adds up to nothing. It is living by the Spirit of God in our spirit man that puts us over.
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
– 2 Peter 1:19
"Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring the light of the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts..." (1 Cor. 4:5).
You don't know what to do. You have to make a decision, but you know you need more information than you have at hand. This verse assures us that, regardless of the seeming urgency of the situation, it is best to wait until we are more knowledgeable than we are at present.
