Matthew 8:8 NLT “But the officer said, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed.”
Just imagine that Jesus was here physically today, He would be receiving several invitations by the rich and powerful, governments and even institutions, to visit and address them. For instance, Zacchaeus was so excited to have Jesus in his house. But in Matthew 8, we read of the Roman Centurion asking Jesus not to bother coming to his house! All he needed was a word from God!
That’s remarkable! He said to Jesus, “Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed.” There were people Jesus healed by simply touching them, others got healed by touching Him, and there were yet others who got healed by the words of Jesus. You can receive whatever you want from God, wherever you are, and whenever, if you believe!
Miracles and healings are not accidents, they are often a product of faith. As Paul preached in Lystra, a paralyzed man was listening to him, and when Paul realized that the man had faith to be healed, he shouted, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And immediately, the man leaped and walked! Hallelujah! (Acts 14:8-10). That was a man who had never walked! Yes, you can have yours now! For with God, nothing shall be impossible!
