Faith in God's Word

A child with Holy Bible

Jesus entered a city called Capernaum. A leader of the Roman army met him. He told him that his servant was sick and Christ said he will go with him to heal his servant. Having faith in the words of Christ, he suggested that Christ should only speak the word and his servant will be healed. Christ did and his servant was healed (Matthew 8:7-13).

There is power in God's word. God in the beginning, with his word, commanded into existence the things we see today. Nature and everything in the world obeys his voice. Let there be light and there was light (Genesis 1:3). Similarly, other things were brought into existence by this word.

No word of God comes out of him and returns void without making an impact (Isaiah 55:11). In this regard, we can use God's word to create the effect or impact we desire if we use it right. We use God’s word right when we study meticulously (2 Timothy 2:15).

The word will always be fulfilled and established. When the children of God decree a thing, it’s established if they do so according to God's word. Heaven and earth will not pass until the words of God, spoken and written, are fulfilled (Matthew 5:18).

The centurion was a man under authority with people under his authority. His words were powerful to those under his authority. Christ has the highest authority. His word cannot be contented with either by nature or demons (Matthew 8:9).

Pray with the word of God. But we can't use what we don't have. We must meticulously give time to study God's word before we can use it in prayer (2 Timothy 2:15).

However, God's word in the mouth of a sinner is like the sound of an empty vessel. He must repent of sin to reap the full potency of God's word (1 John 1:9).
