KEY SCRIPTURE: John 4:50 KJV “Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.”
The word of God is God’s instrument for working miracles. He said, all things were made by the word, and without the word there was not anything made, that was made (John 1:3).
The Lord, told the man, Go your way, your son is well. The scripture added, and the man believed the saying of Jesus. His son was healed the very same hour. What is your challenge? The scripture says those who have believed have entered into their rest. Heb 4:3.
What is the sign that one has believed.?
In our story the ruler stopped his anxious pleading with Jesus to come to his house. He joyfully left.
1. The man who has believed is no more anxious Philip 4:6&7
2. Anyone who has believed demonstrates actions that shows confidence in God.
3. A little child who believes the promise of his father tells his friends his father is bringing home the thing he promised. If you believe, you would surely announce to all that, you have received what you prayed for.
Dear reader, if you would dare to believe God, a lot of the sorrows would cease. Men would know that there is a God in the heavens who hears the heart cry of His children. There are a lot of situations that men call impossible, yet if they would believe God, that situation would have been averted.
I was once at the Accra business area, when I heard a large sound of something hit the floor. It was a child of about one year and a few months old, who had fallen from a height of about six meters, or approximately eighteen feet. Incidentally, there was a medical team having health screening at that moment. I quickly, rushed to the scene, the moment I heard the fall. The child was taken to the medical team, who checked her pulse and heart beat with the stethoscope, but found no life in the baby. The doctor, who was a lady checked other parts and just shook her head in a disappointed manner. The doctor pronounced the baby dead. I was not moved by that. A man carried the baby on the shoulder whiles I laid my hands on her commanding life back into her. I prayed in the midst of the market women whiles we ran to get a taxi to get her to the children’s hospital. I joined the taxi and kept praying. By the time we got to the hospital the child started crying. At the hospital she was attended to, and amazingly, no bone, head or any part of her body was broken The Lord had restored her totally. The baby is normal and very healthy. It took somebody to believe God for a miracle.
