Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them, and be clean?” He turned and went away in a rage.

How much more, when all he said to you was, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” So he went down and immersed himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; his flesh was restored like the flesh of a young boy, and he was clean.
Today we will be discovering the Bible Point: God has the power to heal. We shout: HOLD ON!
We all facing challenges! Today, as we learn about God’s power to heal, I want you to think specifically about God’s power to overcome challenges. Healing isn’t always physical—it can also be emotional or spiritual. Take a minute to write down some challenges that you are facing right now.
In today’s Bible story, we see how God healed Naaman’s leprosy. Throughout the day, remember to pray for God’s healing in your life. Remember—whatever challenges we face, God has the power to heal.

Thank you for healing
our bodies, our minds, and our hearts.
