The centurion:”… But say in a word, and my servant shall be healed” (Luke 7:6-7).
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
“…And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed” (Luke 7:6-7).
The Bible clearly reveals to us the potency and efficacy of God’s Word. His word is absolute reality, and all you need to experience victory and promotion in life is to take God’s Word as the final authority and only truth to live by. One Word from the Lord is all you need to move from one level of glory to another.
As seen in the opening Scripture, a Roman centurion, whose servant was at the point of death pleaded with the leaders of the Jews to ask Jesus to come heal his servant. When he heard that Jesus was on His way, he sent words to the Master saying “You don’t need to come here Lord! Just say the Word and my servant will be healed.” Responding to the centurion’s faith, the Master uttered a word and the centurion’s servant was healed instantly.
On another occasion, a woman came and pleaded with Jesus to heal her daughter who was tormented by a devil (Mark 7:25). The Master said to her, “…go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter” (Mark 7:29). He spoke in past tense: “the demon isgone out of thy daughter!” This was all the woman needed to hear, and she knew her daughter had been healed. The woman and the Roman centurion had one thing in common: faith in the Word of the Master!
This should be your attitude as well. Take the Word of God as the final authority in your life. If the Word of God says you’re holy, then you’re holy! From that point on live, talk and act as the holy for that’s God’s Word of truth concerning you.
If the Word of God says you’re healed, believe it and keep declaring your health, irrespective of the symptoms you may be feeling.
All you need is a Word from God to put you over in life!
Dear Father, I put my trust and faith in your Word, knowing that your Word never fails! Recognizing the power and efficacy of your Word, I make an unqualified committal to live according to your Word. I declare that the Word of your grace is building me up, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
