Trusting in the Word

“Jesus answered him, go in peace; your son will live! And the man put his trust in what Jesus said and started home” (John 4:50; AMPC). This was the royal official whose son was sick. He went to Jesus to ask Him to come and heal his son who was dying (John 4:46-54). I love this verse, the man simply put his trust in what Jesus SAID and it came to pass. I think you would call that simple faith. Another example is the Syrophoenician woman who wanted Jesus to heal her demon-possessed daughter in Mark 7:25-30. When Jesus simply SAID, “the demon has gone out of your daughter” (v29) she believed His word and went home and sure enough the girl was delivered. In Luke 17:11-19 we read about the 10 lepers that Jesus healed; again, they simply believed what Jesus SAID to them, “go at once and show yourselves to the priest.” They were healed as they went because of their faith in the words of Jesus.
You might be thinking it was easy for these people because Jesus was right there in the flesh. However, we have the words of Jesus on every page of our Bible and we can still put our trust in every word that is written because God is faithful.
Are you dealing with an impossible situation as each one of these people were? Find yourself a “word” from the Lord that pertains to your situation and put your trust in that word. Keep rehearsing it and speaking it until you also receive the answer like they did.
