TITLE: "THERE IS POWER IN THE SPOKEN WORD”
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:8, 13 “(8) The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. (13) 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.” (KJV)
A portion of Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” When Jesus walked this earth, He spoke life to all that would believe in Him. In Matthew chapter 8, a Roman centurion came to Jesus for help. Matthew 8:5-8, 13 tells about this conversation: “(5) And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him. (6) And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. (7) And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. (8) The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. (13) 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.” (KJV)
The same way Jesus worked in the life of this centurion (who was a Gentile); is the same God of today. Jesus still answers prayer! If you have a need before the Lord; BELIEVE that He hears your prayer. Trust IN Him to give you His best. The centurion did NOT DOUBT the “WORDS” of Jesus, nor His ABILITY to heal. The centurion OBEYED Jesus “GO” command without hesitating. Trust and Believe! No matter how negative your situation appears to you. Speak the WORD of GOD to your situation.
Your life has a special purpose for God’s Kingdom. Walk in your divine calling from Jesus!
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank You for Your tender mercies surrounding my life. In Your Holy and Matchless Name…Amen!
Blessings to you!
