Our faith begins with Jesus
Jesus is the author of our faith

In the book of Matthew 8: 5 onwards we read about a Centurion whose servant was paralyzed and in terrible pain. A Centurion is a leader of one hundred soldiers. He was a man under authority. He pleaded with the Lord Jesus for the healing of his servant. Even though the Lord was willing to go to his house to heal the servant, the Centurion had faith that if the Lord would ‘only speak a word’ his servant would be healed. The Lord granted his request and commended the great faith of the Centurion. The Lord sent His Word and the Centurions servant was healed.

You may be in a pressing crowd, or alone at home, your faith will not go unnoticed by God. This kind of faith pleases the Lord and releases heavenly blessings on our life. Today all that we need is ‘a word from the Lord’. A single word from the Lord can change our lives and our future. A single word from God can impact and change a nation. The Centurion shifted his eyes from a hopeless situation to a place of hope – which is the Lord Jesus. In the same way do not focus on the situation at hand, or on your failures and get depressed, but today as you read this email, arise and lift your eyes expectantly to the Lord Jesus and call out to Him. He will send you that one word that can bring healing, deliverance and victory in your life. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, Many a times I have forgotten to say. Thank you, but today I thank you with all my heart for all the blessings you have bestowed upon me. Thank you for my job, family, friends, good health and the hope I have in thee. Today I pray that you will send your word from Heaven which can bring healing to my body and soul. Fill me with your heavenly joy and  peace. In the unfailing name of JESUS I pray. Amen.
