John 4:50: Jesus saith unto him, go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
The man believed the word. His son was healed. Many times we are short of a miracle because we do not believe. This nobleman believed what Jesus said and went his way. He realized that his son lived and didn’t die. He also realized the fact that his son was healed at the same hour that Jesus said that he would live. Thus, the nobleman and his whole family believed in Jesus.
We pray and seek God for certain things in life, but most of the time we don’t receive what we ask for because we don’t believe that we will receive it. We shut our eyes and ears from listening to what God is trying to tell us. We don’t seem to understand His word. We don’t pay much attention to it while we read the word even though He is trying to talk to us through it. So, at the end of the day it is us who is losing the miracle or the blessing. We like to hear only what we want. This kind of an attitude will get us nowhere. God wants us to be sensitive to His voice. Listen to what He says when you pray to Him and read His word.
Believe God’s word about you. His plans are to prosper and not to harm you. His thoughts and ways are higher than our’s. We might have so many dreams about our life, but the best dream about our life is the plan that He has for us. For that to be accomplished, yield to His word. Learn to believe Him in everything.
