“And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.” And the servant was healed in that hour” (Matthew 8:13).

Speaking with one who understood authority, Jesus did not need to go the centurion’s house.  Jesus did not need to do some of the things he did but did them for our sake.  If we had believed at the beginning, these instructions would already be in us.  But Jesus has come to save us, and so He walks alongside us.  “Let it be done according to Your faith” may be how He does it for all of us.

Lord, my level of trust wavers.  The centurion turned and went home.  He believed because He understood that Jesus had the power and that the petition was granted.  How often I waver, my faith weak and not believing.  Yet, You still love me, and Your grace is still there.  It is by that grace that I have this life which You have given.  Mature me in faith to believe Your promises.

Lord Jesus, kindle Your Holy Spirit in me to deepen the faith You have given me.  In those moments of doubt, guide me to understand that You have already done all that is needed.  You spoke all things into existence.  Of course, You can say the word and it is done.  Yet Lord, even if You leave me immature in faith, I will still praise You.  Help me according to the Father’s will.  Let me be content and filled with joy and faithfulness.  Amen.
