Jesus healed the leper and specifically told him to keep a lid on it. Show yourself to the priests, thank God, and go about your business.
 
What did the fellow do? He shouted it out everywhere. He messed up the Lord! Jesus wanted to keep visiting the city. He no longer could do it. He had to hole up out in the wilderness!
 
What could he do? Apart from divinely muzzling the guy or handing him back his leprosy, he was stymied! The Lord!
 
He adapted, though. The cured fellow raised such a ruckus that everyone had to go out in the wilderness to check Jesus out. Maybe it even worked out better this way; they had to do something.
 
I think there’s a lesson for us. You want your companions in service to be discreet and to behave in a certain way, and they don’t. You want them to be like the silhouetted fellow in the videos and they are the exact opposite. It’s enough to drive a guy crazy, but it was enough to drive Jesus crazy, too, yet he didn’t go crazy. He just adjusted tactics and it all worked out. And maybe at a later date he even ran across the fellow and said: “You know, you really should have kept your mouth shut. But it all worked out.”

Not Guilty based on the Jeremiah defense.  Jer. 20:9

...it's possible they already had that conversation in heaven....
Some 4000 years of observing every situation man got into and Jehovah training Jesus as to what to do in each situation. Jesus observed Elisha being used to ressurect the widows son, watched how she would have been besides herself with great ecstacy when getting her child back. When Naaman was healed from leprosy, no doubt he was extremely joyful and told everyone what happened. Jesus observed that from the heavens also. Jesus likely knew that man would go telling everyone. Still he didn't want it to be a huge spectacle.
