Power In The Word

Key Verse

“The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed” (Matthew 8:8).

TEXT — Matthew 8: 1-13


Often, what prevents people from receiving miracles from the Lord is failure to do the simplest thing: believe that God is able and willing to change their situation. Where this is absent, problems defy prayers and despair deepens.

The encounter between Jesus and the Roman military officer, the centurion, is very instructive. The man could have been dissuaded from Jesus on account of race, pride, power, and even possessions but none of these things mattered to him. He was focused on getting healing for his servant who was sick at home. He was surprised at the willingness of Jesus to abandon all other engagements and go to his house. He told Jesus not to bother coming. He believed that if Jesus spoke the word of power and authority right there, his servant at home would be healed.

As a commander over 100 soldiers, he understood power and authority, and he knew that just as he could give order to his soldiers and they obey him, so Jesus can command healing on his servant, and He will be obeyed. It was a pleasant episode for Jesus and He declared that “I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel”. He warned the Jews that they risked being supplanted in the kingdom of heaven by people from the farthest parts of the earth. To the Centurion, Jesus said, “as thou hast believed, so be it done unto you”. His servant was healed that very moment.

Nothing should hinder you from receiving the fulfilment of God’s promises in your life. No sickness, affliction or challenge can resist the word of Jesus Christ. God has given Him a name superior to all others, at the mention of which every knee must bow in obedience, and every tongue confess His sovereignty. Believe it and there shall be nothing impossible to you. The power of God’s word will work effectually in your situations and circumstances.
