Day 15: Say the Word
Today we journey with Jesus. We can learn so much from the life of Jesus, not only through His parables but also through His ministry.
When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help.
“Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied,
“Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” Matthew 8:5-9
The centurion (a professional officer of the Roman army) was a man who recognized Jesus and His authority.
That same authority was granted to us by the blood. Once we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we became co-heirs with Christ.
Do you have faith to move those mountains?
I want you to ask yourself, what authority are you governing under?
In what way are you recognizing the power behind your words?
The centurion knew the power of his own words, by understanding the power he governed under which was the Roman empire at that time. This allowed him to recognize that Jesus operated in authority and in the spirit.
“When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” Matthew 8:10
I love how we can amaze God. Are you exercising your faith?
I want to remind you, that YOU are a child of the most high God.
Think about the people you love and when they amaze you. Doesn’t that have you looking at them favorably? Imagine when your children amaze you.
How much more when you trust God, your heavenly father and exercise the anointing He’s given you and the authority you walk in.
