VOICE YOUR FAITH FOR RESULTS
Matthew 9 vs
»»18.¶ While he spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshipped Him, saying, “My daughter has just died: but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.” – [KJV]««||
OUR focused text is coming from a ruler who is making a great emphasis on what Jesus could do and should do for him. His voice depicts the language of faith. Even though death has been “crowned” the final exit to the next world, the man saw Jesus as one who could ultimately defy the power of death. He located the One who had the keys of hades and death ( Rev 1:18). Beloved, what on earth would propel a man not to accept the death of her daughter? One, his faith in Jesus as the resurrection and the life. Jesus said to Mary in John 11:25, _”I am the resurrection and the life: he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live_”.
His invitation of Jesus to raise his daughter meant that He never accepted the death as final. So instead of him to find a carpenter to mould a coffin, he rather sought for a divine or supernatural solution. Beloved, there is something beyond the natural and being in Christ gives you the access into the supernatural life. No matter how dead your situation may seem, act in your faith like this ruler and speak out in faith to invite the power of Jesus into your situation. Faith has a language which is based on God’s word. He might have probably read from Genesis 15:15 that ” _you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age_“, and applied to his situation that ” I shall not bury my daughter at this young age, I will invite Jesus to raise her up”. So he knew this kind of death is not from God. Hallelujah !
Cherished one, what is it that you have drawn the final conclusion about or even doctors and experts have given their final verdict? Don’t conclude yet. Just consult Jesus, act by releasing the faith language from your heart to bring Him on the scene. The language that faith speaks acts in the affirmative of God’s word, not by reasonings, logics or analysis.The man was sure to have his daughter back to life . He didn’t “try” Jesus by saying “please I beg, I am coming to try whether You can raise my daughter back to life”. No! He was 100% sure. Come boldly to God with much assurance of faith expecting positive results. For faith in God doesn’t fail, it only prevails.The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
This is the victory that overcome the world, even my faith. I speak life over every seemingly dead situation in my life. It is just sleeping, so I raise it back to life now. I have overcome failure, sickness, death, poverty because Jesus overcame in my stead. I shall not die but I will live to proclaim the goodness of the Lord. I am living to fulfill my days and purpose on earth in Jesus’ Name. Amen!_
