    The providence of God is amazing. He chose to allow four diseased, discarded, disregarded souls to be the instruments of good news -- thank God that they did not allow their condition to dictate their behavior.

    2 Kings Ch7 V. 3 What were the names of the 4 leperous men?

    God's Word is yea and amen. When God is on our side, we will conquer all enemies. If we are on the Lord's side, victory is sure. The Israelites witnessed this clearly in this chapter. God used his prophet Elisha to convey His message to the Israelites. The man who doubted saw the repercussion. The lesson here is that should not doubt what God has promised to do.

    "According the word of the Lord" was all that was needed for breakthrough to manifest. No wonder Moses said "Would to God all His people were prophets". If you start hearing from God, your breakthrough has started. If God says anything, no matter how impossible it may seem, it will surely come to pass. Because God can not lie. We need to yearn to hear the voice of God and depend on Him to lead us

    The Lord made a way! Sometimes God is already working on our lives and we are still waiting.
