2 Kings 5:9 Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. 10 And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” 11 But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, “Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’

Naaman, commander of the army of Syria, had leprosy. His ultimate goal was to be healed of leprosy. He went to Elisha’s house with a preconceived idea of how he was going to be healed. When the process of his healing was revealed to him, he became furious. Elisha’s messenger (not even Elisha himself) told Naaman to dip seven times in some of the dirtiest water around. If it wasn’t for Naaman’s servants, Naaman would have missed his blessing because he was frustrated with the process.

Like Naaman, we all have some ultimate goal. We want our business to grow, our family to be made whole, or our finances to increase. We may have our own ideas of how God’s going to manifest these promises in our lives. What do we do when we don’t like the process God has given us? Will we obey God even if it doesn’t make sense or seems beneath us, or will we risk missing our blessing by doing our own thing?

Don’t get so tied down to an idea of how God’s going to bless us because He may do something totally opposite. Trust His process. He’s way smarter than us and He’s already worked things out in our favor to reach our ultimate goal. Trust Him.
