Have you ever found yourself in a place you didn’t want to be? Have you ever wondered how God could possibly use you in the situation you’re in? 

In today’s episode of All God’s Women we look at a beautiful testimony of God at work through a humble servant girl. Though she’s only mentioned in one verse, she is the personification of what a Christian woman should be.

In 2 Kings chapter 5 we’re introduced to Naaman. He was commander of the army of the king of Syria. He was a great and honorable man of valor, and a victorious warrior, but he had leprosy. 

We all know the familiar phrase in Esther “for such a time as this”. Although the phrase itself is only found in that one instance, the concept is throughout the Bible. That little servant girl was in Naaman’s household for such a time as that. You are where you currently are for such a time as this. 

In the days ahead we may very find ourselves in places we never intended to be. Situations may not be of our choosing. But we will have the choice of what we do in those situations. 

When you’re whisked away from the comfort of your former life and thrown into an unfamiliar world, you have the choice to wallow in darkness or to shed light in the darkness. The choice is yours. What will it be?
