📖:2 Kings 7:1-20
Confession: Psalm 91
2 Kings 7:6 says “for the Lord had caused the Arameans to hear the sound of chariots and horses and a great army, so that they said to one another, “Look, the king of Israel has hired the Hittite and Egyptian kings to attack us!”
There was a great famine in Samaria and the king of Syria besieged the city. God made the hosts of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of a great host, and they fled and the four lepers were able to enter the camp of the Syrians. God magnified the steps of these four lepers to sound like chariots and horses of a great host, and the Syrian armies fled the camp.
As Christians, God has greater plans for us. When He enlarges the steps under us, our feet will not slip (Psalm 37:23). Take the example of the four lepers, they were no match for the Syrians. They were determined to go beyond by faith, and took the risk in entering the camp. God saw their faith and intervened in their favour. He enlarged their steps and they were endowed with treasures they never thought or imagined in their lives. We all want enlargement in our various lives, be it spiritual, physical, or financial. Enlarging one’s step is to go beyond, or to go further in life. When God enlarges our steps, we will achieve things we never thought possible or didn’t plan to accomplish in life.
The lepers didn’t know that God would enlarge their steps. They had faith and determination, and God worked in their favour. When we surrender all to God, He will make us to take the right steps and manifest our plans. Whatever we want to do, let us have faith in God, do our part and allow Him do His part. He will enlarge our steps and put our lives on the right path of our destiny.
God loves us abundantly and wants to bless us. The footsteps of the four lepers was what God used to produce the sounds of chariots and horses heard by the Syrian armies which made them flee the camp. God may not be able to enlarge our territory, if we don’t do our part. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith and He will enlarge our steps. For those yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, this is not negotiable, do so now, tomorrow might be too late. DO IT NOW! Have a relationship with God.
