Matthew 8:13 "And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour."
After commending the centurion for his active faith, Jesus told him to leave and his faith would be rewarded.
1. The centurion left empowered by a buoyed faith.
2. He went away knowing that Jesus would not disappoint him.
3. He departed with the understanding, the knowledge
that the mission was accomplished.
The words of Jesus to the centurion were, "Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.
From this, we can be assured that Jesus will not leave us comfortless; hopeless; nor helpless. Our verse of focus concludes with the instant miracle of Jesus. The verse states, "And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour." In other words, the centurion's servant was healed the very hour that Jesus told the centurion to leave. When we witness the miraculous power of God, our only response is to worship and to adore Him. When we reflect on the blessings that we have received from God's hands, we ought to praise Him and shout hallelujah.
The times when we think that we have reached 'the end of the rope', that is, when we think that we are no longer able to deal with a difficult situation, Jesus miraculously provided the solution. May we not lean on our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He will direct our paths. (Proverbs 3: 5-6) Like the centurion, we can come boldly to Jesus and He will not fail to help us.
