“2. And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of
the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife. 3. And she said
unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for
he would recover him of his leprosy.” (2 Kings 5: 2-3)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When the Hebrew maid in our Focal Scripture was brought to Naaman’s household, her
primary assignment was to minister to Naaman’s wife. She had a limited job
description. She had no business serving Naaman directly. She had limited relevance.
In the process of time, the Hebrew maid brought the idea of how Naaman could be
healed. She went beyond serving Naaman’s wife and added value to Naaman himself. She
stepped out of the confines of her job description and solved a higher need.
Friend, you may be in the same level of influence, but dare to operate above your
job description. Solve a higher need. Do more than men expect you to do. Rise above
the confines of your limited job description and do things that will add more value
to people around you. Step out of that mould that men have cast you in and do what
they don’t imagine you can do.
You can do more and be more than men thought you could do or be; more doors of
relevance will be opened to you; God will transit you from where you play second
fiddle to where your potentials and potentialities are maximized; God will cause men
to see you through the binoculars of the higher needs you can solve.
The Hebrew maid was not forced into a higher relevance; she just saw what she could
do differently, and she did it and became more relevant. Discover what you can do
beyond your current job description, and as you do it, your relevance will grow.
Pray With Me: Lord, open my eyes to see the extra that I can do and be, in Jesus’
