Last week as I prepared to teach Bible study there was one verse that stood out to me. I want to share it with you in hopes that you will employ it the remainder of this year and prayerfully your entire Jesus journey:
Matthew 8:13 MSG
Then Jesus turned to the captain and said, “Go. What you believed could happen has happened.” At that moment his servant became well.
What you believed could happen has happened…
If you read verses 5-12, you will see that the centurion, or captain, came to Jesus because he knew that He could help him with his need. His belief led him to act off of a simple premise…Christ has authority to heal, so I'm going to ask Him to speak a word and heal my servant.
If we know God as a healer, a provider, a peace giver, a protector, or as anything else (because the list goes on), I want us to be confident enough to call on God for what we believe He can do.
Because of the captain's faith, he came to Jesus, made his requests known, and in return heard, "Go. What you believed could happen has happened."
Don’t you want to hear that same response? If you believe God can, why don’t you ask Him?
Try this out this week and let me know what happens =)
Just in case you need a little more encouragement, Jesus makes this promise somewhere else. He stated,
…whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
God can! Just ask Him!
