KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:13 KJV “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 self-same hour.”
The Roman centurion had his servant getting well because he believed. Faith is always a supernatural hand that takes hold of the answer. A lady recently came to me saying her elder sister who is pregnant has been overdue for delivery after two months. This sister was in another town about two hundred and eighty kilometres away. I prayed with her and told her the sister would deliver. The sister delivered by twelve o clock the next day. What brought such a quick answer? It was the faith of this lady. The moment she believed she had the answer which reflected in the life of the sister who was so many kilometres away. God our Father is not withholding any answer from anyone, it is up to you to take the answer and go.
In most of the encounters of our Lord Jesus and a lot of the people who came seeking for healing for themselves or another individual, they went away whole because they believed. The Lord commented that their faith had made them whole. In the case of the woman with the issue of blood, she did not talk or even looked into the face of the master, but came from behind and touched the helm of his garment. Her fountain of blood ceased. Matthew 9:22 KJV” But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”. In the healing of this lady, she did not call the attention of the master, but her faith took hold of her healing. The Lord as a very spiritual man noticed what had taken place. He was not in any way furious with the lady, but was happy for her healing. God rejoices at your healing or deliverance.
We always have a part to play in our healing or receiving any answer that we are anticipating to have. Faith is all about knowing what God have said in His Word, and you placing your confidence in that word such that, you act on it, knowing it is true. Whenever you act in this way you have taken a hold of the answer with your supernatural hands called faith. Whenever our Father God gives a promise, or a statement of a fact,
that word has whatever God is talking about. This very thing, if it is healing or any promise is encapsulated in that word. The moment you believe that word, you have taken possession of whatever God is talking about. Your failure to believe means you don’t have the thing God is saying. Your faith is the final determinant whether you go away with the answer or not. What happens to those who believe yet realize that nothing has changed? We will answer this question in our next study.
Thank you, heavenly Father, for your love and care for me. Your heart is ever opened up to me to bless me with every good thing. You do not withhold any good thing from me. I also take a hold of your word, that makes available to me whatever you talked about. By my faith I possess my answers. Thank you, dear father.
James 1:17 KJV Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
