“…Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and
thou shalt be clean.”
(2 Kings 5: 10)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Elisha told Naaman to wash himself in Jordan seven times, after which his flesh
would be renewed. Naaman was told to do one thing seven times. In Bible numerology,
seven is the number of perfection; so Naaman was told to do one thing to the point
of perfection. One step taken to the point of perfection led to Naaman’s healing.
Friend, God says, do one thing to the point of perfection and it will distinguish
you. Carve a niche for yourself in one area of skill; perfect your abilities in one
area that can distinguish you; be exceptionally competent in one thing you can be
known for; discover one thing and become a master in it.
Discover and perfect that one strategic step that will take you higher. Discover the
idea that will lead to your increase, and work it to the point of perfection.
Discover the skill in you that needs to be perfected, and if you drive it to the
point of perfection, it will open doors for you. Discover your niche and work in it
until you attain perfection.
It’s not enough to do the right thing; God says, do the right thing to the point of
perfection. Work your dreams, skills, business, career, ministry, etc to a point
where you are perfect in your work. Washing in Jordan was simple; and Naaman did it
to the point of perfection and got healed.
Your assignments, responsibilities, career, ideas, dreams, skills, abilities, etc
may be simple in your eyes, but become exceptional and do it until you attain
Doing many things shabbily may mess up your chances, but doing one thing perfectly
will distinguish you beyond measure.
Pray With Me: Lord, give me grace to attain perfection in one thing that will
distinguish me, in Jesus’ name!
