Numbers 5:1-31; Proverbs 2:1-22; Mark 14:27-52

And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? 2 Kings 5:7
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118:9

People expect governments to cure diseases and avert natural disasters, yet they are powerless to solve the tragedies that sin causes. Israel’s king could not cure Naaman, but the Lord healed him. Human power is limited, but God is omnipotent. Look to Him, rather than to men. —Keith Keyser

Our times are in Thy hand; we’ll always trust to Thee,
Till we have left this weary land, and all Thy glory see. —William F. Lloyd
