2 Kings 5:10 Then Elisha sent him a messenger, who said, “Go and wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored, and you will be clean.”

Joshua 6:14 So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days. 15 Then on the seventh day, they got up at dawn and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. That was the only day they circled the city seven times. 16 After the seventh time around, the priests blew the horns, and Joshua commanded the people, “Shout! For the LORD has given you the city!

Throughout scripture, God tells His people to do some strange things. In one case, God tells a leper, through Elisha, to get clean by washing himself in dirty water. In another case, God gave Joshua the war plan of walking around a city once a day for seven days.

Some of the things God instructs us to do go against our logic, our education, and understanding. But, to experience the best results in our lives, we must be obedient to God’s requests.

After obeying God’s instructions, we may not see immediate results from our obedience. Just know, the success is not in the outcome, but in the obedience. Whether it be the next day or the next month, believe God will reward us for our obedience.

Let’s not go on thinking our logic is smarter than God’s plan. Even if God’s instructions are strange, let’s push past our logic and believe His way is more beneficial than anything we could ever come up with.
