Because He Believed

And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:13‬ ‭

In this passage of scripture, the nobleman had a dear servant/friend who was very sick. He cared for him and wanted him to get well. He did the one thing most of us fail to do when we have a need. He had great faith and told Jesus he believed that if He just spoke the word, his servant could be healed. Then, as a result of this man’s great faith in the Son of God, it happened in that very way! He was made WHOLE!

What if the nobleman had said,

I’m not sure Jesus can totally heal him, but maybe He can make my servant feel a little better?

What if he had said, I’ll figure this out myself?

What if he had gone to his friends for help instead?

The answer to those questions is that he would have missed watching Jesus do what only He could do!

If the struggles you’re dealing with today were cared for according to your faith at this moment, what would be accomplished? I’m afraid we’re truly living this out. We are in some kind of mess and we…

  • Doubt that the Lord will help us
  • try to figure out a solution on our own.
  • We run to everyone else except the Lord and we talk to them instead. .

Why would we want to miss out on the blessing of all that Christ can do simply because we have such little faith in Him? He is able to do mighty things we can’t even understand! Ephesians 3:20

Throw all your confidence in Christ today and watch the amazing things He can do because you believed!
