Don't Set Yourself Up for Failure

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 5 and Philippians 1:6

God can reverse every curse in your life - from the financial and physical to the generational and spiritual. The prophet Elisha would not accept payment from General Naaman for God's restoration of the warrior's health, but the prophet's servant Gehazi couldn't resist. He lied, took the payment and hid it. Elisha knew what Gehazi had done and rebuked him for jumping ahead of God's provision and blessing. Gehazi set himself up for failure, and his punishment was the curse of leprosy. 

Seven years later because of God's divine arrangement, Gehazi was able to take and hide a load of riches from an abandoned Syrian camp.  A changed man, Gehazi generously shared the loot with the children of Israel, and God restored his health and promoted him to the king's advisory board.

If you are wrestling with a curse, or have given in to its control, God wants to accomplish something in you greater than just getting rid of your problems.  Put your trust in God and obey His Word, and you too, like Gehazi, can enjoy a comeback.
