“Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his
master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria…”
(2 Kings 5: 1)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Naaman was a great and honourable man, he was a noble soldier, he made progress from
being a mere recruit to being a captain in the army. Naamam was relevant in his
generation; he achieved fame as a soldier; he rose to the limelight.
Naaman’s greatness came because the Lord used him to give deliverance to Syria. He
became great because God used him; he was great because he served God’s purpose;
Naaman fulfilled a divine purpose/assignment, and greatness came to him.
Friend, your greatness is tied to the fulfillment of God’s purpose and assignment on
your life. Greatness will come your way naturally when you learn to do God’s will
and fulfill God’s plan and purpose for your life. Greatness will not come only by
your abilities, but it will come when your abilities serve heaven’s purpose on
earth. Greatness is when heaven finds profit through you.
When you discover and fulfill God’s purpose for your life, you are on the highway
that will eventually lead you to honour and fame. When you fulfill God’s
expectations from you, greatness is inevitable. Your greatness is tied to an divine
assignment that God wants you to fulfill. Aligning yourself with God’s plan is the
only way to be more than you are.
Naaman’s master may not have planned to make him honourable, but what God did
through Naaman made him honourable. Your honour and fame does not lie in the hands
of men; it lies in God’s hands. Seek God, seek to fulfill His plan and assignment
for your life, and you will naturally attain greatness.
Pray With Me: Lord, show me that divine purpose and assignment that will make me
great and famous, in Jesus’ name!
