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. (John 4:52 KJV)
When Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee, there was a royal official whose son was lying ill in Capernaum. When he met Jesus, he began to beg Him to come down and cure his son who was at the point of death. Jesus was quick in rebuking him, “Unless you see signs and miracles you will not believe at all.” The nobleman undeterred continued to plead for the life of his son.
There is something that Jesus was demanding from this man, he had to believe before seeing anything. Faith will acknowledge the truth of the Word of God where there is no sign to prove it. Faith doesn’t flow in the same channel as the human senses. When Jesus saw the persistence in this man, He gave him a Word, “Go in peace, your son will live!” (v50). There is a response that you must give to the release of a Word and this man was on point. He put his trust in what Jesus said and started going home. He entered a place of rest because of the Word that came from the Master of Life.
What is your own response to the Word? Do you rest on the promise knowing that you hold an answer already? When you have brought something in prayer to God, do you continue nagging Him for a sign to prove that the answer will come?
On his way home, the nobleman met his servants who told him that his son was off the death bed. He asked them, “At what hour did he begin to amend?” They told him and he knew it was the very hour when Jesus had given him the Word.
The point of believing is the point of receiving. The child began to amend when Jesus released the Word and the man believed (unleashed his faith for definite results). There are things in your life today that will be amended by your believing. You don’t have to see with your eyes first but to enter your rest in the Word of God.
Your finances will begin to amend if you believe, your marriage will amend, sickness will amend in obedience to the Word but you must believe to see this. Blessed are those who believe without seeing.
I decree that things are amending around me! I will not walk in fear anymore but in faith. I declare that my faith is collecting for me high definition results.
