Scripture Reading: Matthew 8:13
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.
Reflections: ‘It has been done for you just as you have believed’ Jesus said to him. The Greek word translated believed is ‘pisteuō’ which means ‘to have faith’. So by faith, the centurion had his specific request granted. His servant had been healed instantly by Jesus. When he initially approached Jesus for this intervention, Jesus had wanted to go with him to pray over his servant. He however restrained him from traveling and argued out that healing could be administered without Jesus’s physical presence in his house. He believed that just a command of healing from the lips of Jesus will travel through time and space and take expression in the body of his servant. This was a real demonstration of outstanding faith which was rewarded instantly. The faith of the centurion establishes the evidence that God honors you at the level of your faith. When your faith is limited, you limit what God can do. When your faith is outstanding, God proves himself! It is time to allow God to prove Himself through your faith! Be the next centurion in town!
Prayer: Oh, Lord help me to believe you for miracles with faith that is outstanding.
Confession: I will not demonstrate limited faith in my life. My faith for breakthroughs shall be outstanding. I will be honored with spectacular results.
