Verse Of The Day: Jesus said to him, “Go your way. Your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. John 4 : 50
LISTEN: Do you have faith? Do you believe the word of God? Do you believe to see the Lord’s goodness in your life? Do you believe that with God nothing is impossible? (Jeremiah 32 : 27). But what do you do when you believe God? You obey Him and trust His word completely. Our bible verse of the day talks about a nobleman from Capernaum who came to Jesus Christ in Cana of Galilee because of his sick son (v.46). He pleaded with Jesus to come down to his house and heal his son. But Jesus frowned at his unbelief and urged him to trust God. The Bible says, ” When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to him, and begged him that he would come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Jesus therefore said to him, “Unless you see signs and wonders, you will not believe…” (vv.47 – 49). However, Jesus spoke the word, “ Your son lives“ and asked him to go home. This time the nobleman acted in faith, for the bible says, “ Jesus said to him, “Go your way. Your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. As he was now going down, his servants met him, saying that his son was alive.“ (vv.50,51). Beloved, do you believe God’s word for your life or still doubting it? Do you know that faith precedes miracle? To experience God’s touch you must first expect it. Hence, what you cannot expect from God you cannot experience. Friend, why not end your doubt today and start believing? I prophesy to you, whatever Satan has destroyed in your life, I command to resurrect now, in Jesus’ name, amen.
