2 Kings 5:1, 14 KJV
[1] Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.

The Bible said something about the General Naaman of Syria:
He was a great military General in Syria. He was a great honorable man and famous in his country, but something was missing in his life. He had leprosy on his body, so he was an unhappy man despite his achievement “…..BUT HE WAS A LEPER..”

But because he came to submit himself to the God of Israel, he was cleansed. He had to humble himself to come to the Prophet, he had to humble himself to go to the River JORDAN and dip himself into the river, though there were better rivers in his country. Yet, he had to go to the river of Jordan and bath himself according to the Instruction of the man of God.

2 KINGS 5:14
[14] Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

He had a brand new skin for himself, because he came to the Lord in humility and bowed himself to the God of Israel. Finally, Jabez was born out of sorrow. He was born into sorrow. His birth was sorrowful, yet, God made him honorable above his siblings because he called upon the name of the Lord for a change of life and destiny.

And the Lord heard his cry and answered him. So, God turned him life around and removed the tag of sorrow and made him honorable above his peers.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 KJV
[9] And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
[10] And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

No matter who you are….no matter what you think you have gone through, no matter what you think the devil has made of you.

No matter how messed up the devil had made your life to be. No matter how disjointed you think your destiny might have been…THE MANUFACTURER AND DESIGNER OF YOUR LIFE STILL HAS THE SPARE PARTS IN HIS STOREHOUSE.

He can still repair your damaged life.
He can still amend your broken destiny.
He can still heal your wounded life.
He can still renew your broken homes
He can still give Fresh Wine into your battered marriage.

He can still make things fresh again.
The Lord God of Jerubbal, Jephthar, Jabez, and General Naaman is still the Lord God of Israel.
