I Only Need The Letter
Then the king of Syria said, “Go now, and I will send a letter to the king of Israel.” So he departed and took with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, and ten changes of clothing.”
II Kings 5:5 NKJV
Naaman left carrying a lot of stuff. The thing that ended up being the most valuable, in fact the only thing of value to his quest at all, was the letter. The letter opened up the way for him to be healed. The heavy riches did him no good. They were unnecessary. They just weighed him down. All he needed was the letter.
God has given us a letter. It is His Word. It is more valuable than anything else in life. Other things just weigh us down. There is no substitute for or equal to His Letter!
King Jesus, Thank You for Your letter to me. It has more value than anything else I can own. Amen.
