That Centurion in Luke chapter 7 clearly understood authority. He had soldiers and slaves under him; people who would do everything to ensure that his commands are immediately and neatly executed. He also had superiors; people whom he must submit to at all cost. Now this Centurion had a sick servant whom he loved – and would do anything to keep him alive.
Thank God he knew about Jesus; because he sent some of his servants to look for Him. When Jesus was approaching the Centurion's chamber, some high ranked soldiers ran to Him with a message from the Centurion. He literally told Jesus that He didn't need to come all the way to his chamber to heal his sick servant, all he wants from Him is to speak the word of healing, and the military of the kingdom of God would go and execute the command. He even said that the reason why He sent his servants to meet him is because he wasn't worthy enough to stand before a man like Jesus, just like many of his soldiers can't stand before him. Isn't this a perfect picture of a believer's authority?
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; ANYTIME WE SPEAK IN FAITH, THE ANGELS PICK WHAT WE'VE SAID, SO THAT GOD CAN FIX WHAT WE'VE SAID. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
