Throw A Way The Recipe Book, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


2Kings 5:1-14, vs. 1, “Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the LORD had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper”.

I am amazed by how God works, His ways are not our ways and His plans are not our plans. He is the God of the impossibilities. We know He will do it because He has said it in His word, yet often times we do not know how He will do it. We tend to work well with recipes because if we stick to a recipe, we can tell what the result will be. Often times we bring this also in our Christian life as we feel God has a recipe of doing things. It’s like He has set a method A,B,C of how to get it done. Read the rest of this entry »

And Forget Not All His Benefits, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Psalm 103:1-2, “1 Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:”

To God be the glory great things He has done. He is worthy to be praised, He redeemed our lives from destruction. One woman who had been delivered by Jesus, at one point brought in an alabaster box full of precious oil. She broke the box and out of it came precious oil with fragrance filing the room. She took that which was precious to her to wash Jesus’ feet wiping His feet with her hair. I see a woman blessing the Lord, she is taking that which is precious and giving it back to God what belongs to Him. She is sacrificing and doing what is right and not everyone is happy about it especially Judas Iscariot.

We are blessed to know that we can offer back to God what He requires, worship. I know that we are used to being on the receiving end, but let’s begin to bless the Lord commanding every fiber of our being to acknowledge that He deserves our worship. Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” We choose to bless the Lord this day, Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth”.

Don’t Write Me Off Yet, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

2Kings 5:1-19, vs. “14 So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. 15 And he returned to the man of God, he and all his aides, and came and stood before him; and he said, “Indeed, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, except in Israel”

I believe that greater glory to God comes when God uses the least expected, the despised. If someone does something they can do, there is not much rejoicing. How will you even know how it happened? Christ walked on water, which was expected, He is God, but when Peter walked on water, that was grand but not because of Peter but Christ who makes all things possible. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Write Me Off Yet, Part 2of3, Evans Olang

2Kings 5:1-19, “2 And the Syrians had gone out on raids, and had brought back captive a young girl from the land of Israel. She waited on Naaman’s wife. 3 Then she said to her mistress, “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! For he would heal him of his leprosy.”

Though the Syrians were idolaters, and oppressed God’s people, yet the deliverance of which Naaman had been the means, is here ascribed to the Lord. Whether Naaman knew it was God who had given Him victory and not his own ability is not told to us, he’s healing was going to happen through channels he would least expect but would serve God’s purpose, making His name great.

Reach Out And Touch, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Mark 5:25-34, “…For she said, if I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole…”

Desperate people do desperate things if they know that whatever they’ve have to do will make an impact and a difference in their lives. When you know your restoration depends on something extraordinary, bigger than you, you will not care about what people say or think. A woman with the issue of blood was in a situation where she spent everything trying to fix her condition. For 12years she had spent money, visited worthless physicians with no improvement only to be left hopeless. Read the rest of this entry »

Not Over Until He Says So, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

Mark 5:21-43, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

If the Lord had not been on my side, I would have been consumed. His presence always assures me that everything will be fine even if I don’t see it. I don’t have to understand it, all I have to do is only believe, All things are possible with God. My faith is not so much grounded on “He will”, may faith is grounded on “He can”. It does no matter whether He did not appear when I really needed Him, all that matters is that He is here now and nothing is too difficult for Him. Instead of accusing Him for not coming in time, we should say, “Lord we are glad You are here”.

Mark 5:38, “Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept loudly”. Do not act like you don’t have no problem. Admit that you have a problem but confess that there is a way Read the rest of this entry »

Not Over Until He Says So, Part 2of3, Evans Olang

Mark 5:21-43, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

The first 4 verses from vs. 21 concentrated on the man with a sick daughter, the next 10 verses takes a turn to concentrate on this woman with the issue of blood. In reading the story, we can conclude that it wasn’t a quick stop, in vs. 35, “While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” This is not news this father wanted to hear despite knowing how close his daughter was to dying. Who is to blame for the death of the little girl? Some would blame the woman with the issue of blood, she delayed Jesus from reaching the sick girl. Some would blame Jesus, they would argue that He should have set His priorities straight. The bible says in Isaiah 55:8, “for My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, ” says the Lord”. To you He may have delayed, to Him, He is always on time.
