“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.” (2 Kings 5: 2)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In our Focal Scripture, the Syrian forces went to war and captured a little maid who
became a maid to Naaman’s wife. An entire army came together to capture a harmless
little girl. One or two soldiers should have been enough to capture a small girl,
but for the Hebrew maid, an entire army came against her. She was harmless but faced
a huge opposition.
The Hebrew maid later became the channel through which Naaman got information about
Elisha. She was a small girl, but she had strategic information. She looked
ordinary, she was small, but she carried divine deposits and divine information that
would later transform Naaman’s life.
Friend, the magnitude of the opposition against you is indicative of divine deposits
in you. When the enemy comes against you despite your uprightness, just maybe you
are a threat to him; there is something about you that scares the enemy.
When your colleagues, neighbours, haters, mockers, etc always conspire against you
or tell wicked gossip about you despite your innocence, cheer up, there is something
big in you that unsettles them and attracts the opposition.
You may look small but you are loaded with treasures; you may seem deprived and
disadvantaged, but you are the next big thing that God is about to manifest. You may
be the target for the conspiracy of haters, but it’s all a sign of your importance.
Celebrate the battles, conspiracies, gossips, opposition, etc that have come against
you despite your uprightness. If the enemy fights you, it because you are highly
Pray With Me: Lord, I declare that every opposition against me is a sign of my
importance, in Jesus’ name!
