A Word From God
Is All You Need!
“…And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed”
As seen in the opening Scripture, a Roman centurion, whose servant was at the point of death pleaded with the leaders of the Jews to ask Jesus to heal his servant. When he heard that Jesus was on His way, he sent words to the Master saying “You don’t need to come here Lord! Just say the Word and my servant will be healed.” Responding to the centurion’s faith, the Master uttered the word of healing and the centurion’s servant was healed instantly.
On another occasion, a woman came and pleaded with Jesus to heal her daughter who wastormented by a devil (Mark 7:25). The Master said to her, “…go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter” (Mark 7:29). He spoke in past tense:“the demon is gone out of thy daughter!” This was all the woman needed to hear, and she knew her daughter had been healed. Both the woman and the Roman centurion didn’t doubt or argue against the Master’s words; rather, they put their faith to work by acting on the Master’s words.
This should be your attitude to God’s Word. God’s Word is forever settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89), so it never fails. It’s all you need to experience victory and promotion in life. Your responsibility is to believe it and act accordingly. For example, the Word of God says God has made you righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21), believe it and keep declaring your righteousness. It doesn’t matter that the feeling of condemnation sometimes comes to your mind; you’re still the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. That truth, as it were, is already settled in heaven, and as you declare it, it becomes established in your life.
I thank you for the power of your Word and its ability to impact my spirit, soul and even my physical body. I declare that forever, your Word of truth is settled in my life, guiding me in the path of your divine and perfect will for my life. I walk in strength, health and victory today, because I live by your Word,
in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
