2 Kings 5:2-3 NLT At this time Aramean raiders had invaded the land of Israel, and among their captives was a young girl who had been given to Naaman’s wife as a maid. 3 One day the girl said to her mistress, “I wish my master would go to see the prophet in Samaria.

3. We must take action on our faith!
2 Kings 5:5-6 NLT “Go and visit the prophet,” the king of Aram told him. “I will send a letter of introduction for you to take to the king of Israel.” So Naaman started out, carrying as gifts 750 pounds of silver, 150 pounds of gold,[b] and ten sets of clothing. 6 The letter to the king of Israel said: “With this letter I present my servant Naaman. I want you to heal him of his leprosy.”
Q9 - Like Naaman, where does the miracle begin?

I will ask God to do what I cannot, and I will focus on the answer not the problem. I will take action by faith by doing all I can do and letting God do the rest!
