Everything comes by obedience. First comes love and from love springs obedience, and through the door of obedience flows all of Yahweh's intended blessings.We are predestined for blessings, as in Yahweh has desired us to possess his many blessings. But blessings only flow in a relationship of love, manifested in our obedience. An example.
A man came to Elisha for healing. He had leprosy and his king was willing to pay whatever needed to be paid to have him healed. The instructions he received were simple:
“Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and be clean.” (2 Kings 5:10)
But we don't like simple. We like to feel like we are doing something, earning it. The man was upset and about to walk away without the healing. Such a simple thing to do but he would rather go without. Thankfully his servant convinced him to follow the instructions and he received the blessing of healing.
We are not unlike that man. Often we choose to walk around with burdens, sorrows, worries and fears, ignoring the instruction for healing because it is too simple. Healing is available for those who choose to follow the instructions. Our lives would be simple and joyful if we would just follow the instructions in a relationship of love and obedience. Don't walk away from the healing.
