I refer you to the first part of this write up in which we carefully followed the story of four lepers who I choose to refer to as the dare to do it leper celebrities. The story is from 2nd Kings 7:3 to 16 (NKJV) and I am keen to explore the moral dilemma that followed on from part 1.
The story continues (refer to verse 5) By a step of dogged faith, casting aside every fear, they arose and set off to the camp of the Syrians. By the providential hand of God, some other event was happening possibly at the same time the lepers set off to the Syrian camp. The story describes what ordinarily we would call coincidence in the 21st Century; however it did happen and they found that the Syrians had fled from their camp leaving behind all their wealth and possession. It was time for the loot! Heh, what would you do if faced with such situation? I ask myself. These four men carefully sat to eat as much as they could and started to pick to hide as much siver, gold and clothing as they could. Then suddenly they started to question their actions and the fact they have been silent about their discovery of plenty. They remembered home and the state of impoverishment that prevailed! Quite a noble thing to do. Yes I say noble because these were men whom the society did not reckon to be a part of them anyway. They were at the city gates, ostracized from the general population.
All deliberated, they decide to return to inform the King’s household.
The moral of this story:
Irrespective of the peculiar nature of your circumstances, God is not limited by time or geographical distance. He is able to make all things work together for your good in accordance with the word of God in Romans 8:28
Given all circumstances, God is and remains a CONSTANT in whatever situation.
