Now the Syrians in one of their raids
had carried off a little girl from the land of Israel.

2 Kings 5:2 (ESV)

She may have been just a ‘little girl’ in captivity, but she had great trust in the healing power of her God. Samuel was only a young man when he answered God’s call, ‘speak for your servant hears’ (1 Sam.3:10). David was ‘but a youth’ when he took on and defeated Goliath. (1 Sam.17:33). They had two things in common: a lack of years, and an abundance of faith! Paul got it right when he told Timothy, let no one despise you for your youth. (1 Tim.4:12)
Let us praise the Lord for all his young disciples and make sure we use them!
