    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins.

The Chain of Command

  • When Jesus heard this, He was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following Him, He said, I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel. Luke 7:9 NIV 

    We bought a huge dell server on eBay and had to pay a hundred dollars in shipping charges. When I unpacked it and started it up, it died with processor failure. I tried everything that a technician would do during the day, but it did the same thing. Finally I gave up, sat down and stared it frustrated, dreading shipping it back. Something in me said “pray” so I laid hands on the computer and prayed over it. When I pressed start, it worked perfectly and is still in use today.

    While Jesus was on the way to the Centurion’s house, they brought Him word that He did not have to come, but merely speak the word because the Centurion recognized the chain of command. He believed that if Jesus gave the command, that his servant would be healed just as if he told a soldier to do something and they did it. 

    Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Jesus was amazed at the Centurion’s great faith. While in His own hometown, Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith (Mark 6:6). These are the only records of Jesus being amazed at something in scripture. Faith is the currency of heaven. When you pray, believe…true faith builds over time just like trust in a relationship. In my life, I find that faith builds more on Monday than on Sunday.
