Where do we go?

Namaan's story goes on in 2 Kings 5.  He goes to the King of Aram and tells him what the young girl had said.  And the king of Aram said, "Go then, and I will send along a letter to the king of Israel."  (verse 5).

Namaan goes to the king of Israel with the letter, and with gold, silver and clothing - customary gifts for a king.  The King of Israel doesn't know what to do - he can't heal the man, and he thinks this is all a prelude to war.  Elisha, the prophet, hears of what is going on, and sends a message to the king, "Why have you torn your clothes?   Let him come to me, that he may learn that there is a prophet in Israel."  (verse 8b).

Who do we go to instead of God?  Who do we place in God's place?  Where do we go, assuming that we will find healing and wholeness when all along God is waiting for us?
