All You Need Is a Word From God

One Word from God changes everything. The Bible says, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11). The Word of God is powerful, omnipotent.

All you need is just one Word from God, and your life will never be the same. I can’t tell you how many times my wife and I were in an intense situation. Our backs were against the wall, and the Holy Spirit made a certain Scripture alive to us. Glory to God! As soon as we received the Word, our lives took a turn for the better.
 
In Matthew 8, a centurion came to Jesus, pleading for him to heal his servant. “Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain” (verse 6). Who can relate to this? Perhaps you are in terrible pain, or someone who is close to you is in terrible pain.

“I will come heal him,” Jesus replied. If that was me, I would be shouting. But this centurion got revelation. There is something about getting into an atmosphere where Jesus is. Faith is imparted, the Word of God comes alive, and hopelessness disappears in the presence of Jesus.

“The officer said, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed” (verse 8). Wow! Where did this man get this revelation? He recognized Jesus as the Son of God, a man of great authority in the kingdom of God.

The centurion got a revelation on spiritual authority. Listen to what he said in verse 9, “I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.”

The centurion understood that if he commanded his soldiers to do something, they would not challenge his authority. They would obey. The officer realized that everything, including sickness, was under the name of Jesus. So, he told Jesus, “Just speak the word, and my servant will be healed.”

The Bible says, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20). This is why we bring the Word of God to you every morning. The Word of God makes a difference in people’s lives. My dad was a preacher. He said, “Son, never talk about nonsense to God’s people. Always preach the Word. Open your Bible and teach the Word of God to them.”

“Just speak the word,” the centurion said. You do not even have to be where my servant is because there is no distance in authority. That is some serious faith. According to Jesus, that is the highest form of faith. “When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who were following him, he said, “I tell you the truth, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!’’ (verse 10).

We have seen that kind of faith on our broadcasts. Lydia was a woman from Trinidad who was paralyzed for ten months. She couldn’t walk. But one day, when she was watching the broadcast, we were praying for the sick and telling them to place their hands where they were hurting.

Lydia obeyed, and the Holy Spirit told her to get up and walk. She obeyed and started walking. That is a miracle! We did not have to physically lay our hands on her because we are not the healers. Jesus is the healer. Glory to God.

So, Jesus was amazed at the centurion’s faith, and he told him, “‘Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.’ And the young servant was healed that same hour” (verse 13). The servant was healed the same hour Jesus spoke the word.

Some miracles take a long time – forty years, thirteen years. But then there are some miracles that happen in twenty-four hours, and even some that take place in the same hour. Just put your faith out there. I feel the Holy Spirit.

I cannot tell you how many meetings we were in. The Holy Spirit moved powerfully. People had problems in their bodies for thirty years, twenty years, sixteen years. But when the healing power of God descended in that place, twenty years of sickness just disappeared in an instant. Tumors vanished. Broken bones were mended. Diabetes, cancer, blindness, dumbness, paralysis – supernaturally healed in a moment.

Nothing is impossible with God. It is not by power nor by might but by my Spirit says the Lord (Zechariah 4:6). What are you believing God to do in your life? Dare to take him at his Word. Read the Word of God and meditate on it. It will prosper in your life (Isaiah 55:11). All you need is a Word from God.

God bless,
