If you do not know already I’ll tell you now, your confidence in the Lord will determine the magnitude of your miracle. How great your faith is, is also determent of how big your God is. I don’t know about you but I serve a very big and mighty God, who answers prayers in mighty ways! Some will challenge the part where I say your faith will also determine how big your God is, so I’ll explain further for clarity. Even in the same church saying the same prayer, reading the same bible, some people’s problems will remain while others conquer even bigger problems. God will, in fact God cannot fail to deal with your problem, he is incapable of failing!! God does not define the magnitude of your miracle, you do. Just as an earthquake cannot define the magnitude of the shock that you feel, your own proximity to the earthquake does. Let’s take it to scripture. Matthew 8:5-13
The Faith of the Centurion
5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.
You see Jesus could have gone to this man’s house and healed his servant, and that would have been a miracle. However the centurion’s faith placed him in greater proximity with the Lord such that the shockwave that was generated by the Saviour healed a man all the way back home that very hour!!! He would have had to wait for Jesus to travel, but all it took was that confidence, that faith and he sent his word and healed him. I don’t know what you have been waiting for in your own life, I am here to tell you “Have Confidence in prayer”. Father place us in the right proximity to meet you this instance in the mighty name of Jesus. Teach us to be bold lions in prayer. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
