Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that very hour. (Matthew 8:13).
This week, we’ve been looking at a story of faith and humility. Today, we see Jesus’ amazing response and ability to heal in an instant. The Roman centurion came to Jesus with humility and trust, despite the fact that it could have cost him everything. This is one of the only times in the entire Bible where Jesus was amazed at the faith he saw in someone. And it’s simply another example of Jesus power to heal in an instant.
We can all have that kind of faith. We can approach Jesus boldly and with confidence, knowing that He can handle any situation we face. Have you continued to approach Jesus with faith, knowing He can accomplish anything you lay at His feet?
How often do you marvel at God’s ability to handle any situation? Today, simply let God know how amazed you are at His ability—and willingness—to help you in any and every situation.
Read all of Matthew 8:5-13 at once to get the full picture of this encounter between Jesus and the Roman centurion.
