Just Say the Word

He sent out his word and healed them…

(Psalm 107:20 NIV)

I often heard this verse quoted by other Christians, but didn’t quite understand its meaning, until I started to believe. The Roman centurion did too. He believed that Jesus’ word was powerful enough to heal his beloved servant, who was sick and about to die. The centurion said to Jesus, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed” (Matthew 8:8). Then the centurion went on to provide a relevant example, which showed his great faith in Jesus’ spoken word. “For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it”’ (v.9). In other words, “If my words can have such power, Yours can too.” The Bible tells us that Jesus was amazed by the man’s faith and healed his servant. God still looks for people who demonstrate similar faith today, so that they can experience the awesome, healing power of His word.

Believe in the awesome power of God’s Word.
