John 4:47-53 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So, the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
Our situation today is no worse than what this father had to overcome. And just like with this father, Jesus expects us to do something first before He responds to us. He expects us to believe His word. He expects us to walk by faith, not by sight. When Jesus saw the persistence in this man, He said to Him, “Go thy way; thy son liveth!” And the man believed his son was healed. He didn’t question; he didn’t doubt, he believed, by faith that his son was healed. This is the same response we must have in our lives today. We must believe what the Lord spoke shall come to pass.
John 14:13-14 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
We must have complete faith in what Jesus has spoken into our lives, then enter into a place of rest. Resting on God’s word, means you believe it’s already done. Our faith in God should acknowledge the truth of God’s word even when there is no sign to prove it.
