DEVO 02.01.24

Matthew 8:10 "When Jesus heard this, he was amazed..."

- Have you ever wondered, what could possibly amaze Jesus?

- I mean, He is the Son of God.

- The God, Man... completely God and completely man.

- How could anything amaze Him?

- But this verse says that, "He was amazed"

- Here is the rest of the verse.

- "...and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” (Matt. 8:10)

- It was his faith!

- This man was a centurion.

- He wasn't a religious leader.

- Most likely, he hadn't studied the Hebrew Scriptures.

- He wouldn't have been part of the "in crowd" as far as being Jewish ...He is a Roman.

- He was an important Roman centurion with many soldiers under him, so he had every reason to be filled with pride.

- “When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.” Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.” (Matthew ‭8:5-8‬)

- Do you notice that first He calls Him "Lord"

- He comes under Jesus' authority.

- He humbles himself.

- Then he says, "I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word..."

- Just say the Word!

- And with that faith, Jesus (The Word) spoke (a word) and His servant was healed that same hour. (V.13)

- In Verse 13 Jesus says this, “Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.” And the young servant was healed that same hour."

- One word changed everything...but it wasn't just the word.

- It was Jesus' word connected to this man's faith.

- "Because you have believed"!

- What are you believing God for, today?

- Are you completely and absolutely trusting in Him or are you still trying to help him out in the natural?

- Are you still trying to manipulate or control some part of the healing process?

- Are you still trying to help Jesus out?

- If so, then let go!

- Stop!

- All He needs is your faith.

- Your faith that says, "Just say the word"

- Have Faith in Jesus, especially if the situation looks impossible!

- Believe that He is your Healer!

- Believe that He is your Restorer!

- Believe that He is your Source!

- Then ask Him to speak a Word!

- Get in His Word and wait on His Word!

- With that kind of Faith, you will amaze Jesus as well!

- Have a great Thursday!
