Because You Believe

Good morning! This parable is a great example of faith. While it is a little longer than I usually post, enjoy the depth of the word. Have a wonderful day and weekend. 

“5 When Jesus returned to Capernaum, a Roman officer[b] came and pleaded with him,“Lord, my young servant[c] lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.”

Jesus said, “I will come and heal him.”

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. I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.”

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who were following him, he said, “I tell you the truth, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel! 11 And I tell you this, that many Gentiles will come from all over the world—from east and west—and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven. 12 But many Israelites—those for whom the Kingdom was prepared—will be thrown into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

13 Then Jesus said to the Roman officer, “Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.” And the young servant was healed that same hour.” Matthew 8:5-13 NLT

Can the Lord see faith like this in us? _________

Will our faith amaze our Lord and Savior? ______

Luke 17:6 says,  The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘May you be uprooted and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you!

Today, will you ask the Lord to increase your faith?

Father God, you are good. Your ways out number our thoughts. Lord, let our faith in you remain consistent. Help us to trust and believe your word more. In Jesus name, amen. 

Keep believing! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
