Matthew 8:8 Verse of the Day
How would you respond if someone told you he had the power to heal your sickness just by saying the word? It is hard to imagine taking such a person seriously. Our experience teaches us that words do not heal people. Only medicine or other treatments can do something like that.

Yet the centurion had such faith in Jesus that He believed that Jesus only had to say the word in order for his servant to be healed. He knew that Jesus was who he claimed to be, and that as the Son of the living God he had the power to give life and healing to the sick and dying. He believed it with all his heart, and so he asked Jesus just to say the word.

Spend some time in prayer asking the Lord to give you faith like this centurion’s. Consider areas of your life where you struggle to believe that God is really in control, and ask the Lord to help you to trust Him in those areas. Thank God that He is in control of all things, and that He promises to work all things for the good of those who love Him.

AMEN The reason why the Centurion knew that when Jesus gave the word for his child to be healed it would be done because was a soldier and understood the authority that Jesus had :) pray for faith like that i will
