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.
This verse of scripture brings a remarkable closure to a simple yet humble request that a certain man had asked of Jesus. The man did not think of himself worthy enough to have Christ come to his house. He even owned up to his unworthiness before God, yet he had an assurance of faith not only that Christ could cure his servant but that He had all power sufficient to cure him from a distance.
“As thou believest”….”Believe, and you shall receive; only believe” are words of faith we too have all heard at one point or another. And like the Centurion, when we place our hope and trust in God we will witness the limitless power of Christ, and the undeniable power of faith. The man’s prayer of faith was a prevailing prayer and as he had believed, the servant not only got a cure of his disease, but the Centurion master got the confirmation and approbation of his faith. Here we witness God not only gathering a remnant unto Himself but through their belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, He opened the doorway and admitted them into His Kingdom of grace here on earth and into the Kingdom of His glory in heaven.
And so, like the Centurion master, never count yourself out! Don’t ever give up on your HOPES and DREAMS! It is what you and I believe will be done for us.
God’s richest blessings to you and may God continue to shower you with His favour.
Be It Done As Thou Believest!
