Devo Authority for the child of God part 9
Matthew 8:5-10 (NIV)
5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8 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. 9 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.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
Jesus is our example and if He sent his authority to heal then we can too. We don’t have to be there to heal someone. The prophets of old went and laid upon the dead to raise them, but Jesus sent His word and as you know it can’t return void. He is the word and He writes His name on the believers. The word is near you even in your month. You must confess the word or speak the word for the power to be released to save you. This man had great faith Jesus said. You must have faith and speak the word over others. That word you speak must be sent from God through you by the Holy Spirit to have effect. The centurion understood this. The centurion had authority to carry out orders from above just as we do. Some orders are written and others are spoken.
