“But the centurion replied to Him, Lord, I am not worthy or fit to have You come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant boy will be cured.” (Matthew 8:8)
In the Scripture reference, the centurion’s servant was sick, he came to Jesus because he needed a miracle. Jesus was ready to go to his house and heal his servant, but the centurion demonstrated a great level of faith in the Word of Jesus. He believed that Jesus operated under the authority of God, and so, all Jesus needed to do was is to speak the Word and the power of God will carry the Word to his servant at home and cure him. And Just as he believed, his servant was healed the very moment Jesus pronounced the Word. (Matthew 8:5-13). In another incident, Peter had toiled all night fishing, exhausting every means with no result. But then Jesus Spoke, and Peter immediately caught a miracle harvest of fish beyond his ability to contain! (Luke 5:4-11)
The Bible says that the just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:17). This means living by the ‘LAW of Faith.’ And How is the Law of Faith activated? Our faith is activated by Confession; speaking what we believe in the Word of God. (Romans 10:9). As believers all we need is already waiting in the Store House of Faith, in the Spirit realm. And the key to unlocking or accessing that Store House of Faith is in the Tongue – Confession. Our tongue is at the centre of our life. We can either use it for Life or Death. (Proverbs 18:21).
What are you speaking over your circumstances and life?
Prayer Confession: Thank you Father for the ever winning and over coming life of faith I have in Christ Jesus. The power of life and death is in my tongue. I choose life. I will daily humble myself to your word to mould, correct, shape and direct the course of my life. I have victory and dominion over Satan, sin, sickness, incurable disease, lack, disappointment, failure and every problem of life. I refuse to use my tongue for vanity and cursing. I will only use my tongue for good by the power of the Holy spirit. Lord thank you for helping me to use my tongue to impart my immediate environment and the world at large for good. I walk with this consciousness today and always, living in perpetual victory. In Jesus Name. Amen!
Reflection: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]." (Proverbs 18:21)
