MATTHEW 8: 5-13
“Now when He had left speaking, He said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught”. Luke 5:4
The person that made these promises is too great to be overlooked by you. Heaven and earth have known and recognized Him to be great. Looking at the nature of the person that made the promises, why would you not trust Him? It is God that told you that He will do what He said He will do. Because of His Person,believe what He told you. Act on what He says and wait for His promises.
The Centurion saw the dignity, personality and the greatness of Jesus. He caught a revelation on the divinity of Jesus. He knew and understood the authority of Jesus, hence he said, Lord, you don't need to go all the way to my house. Just speak a word only and I will believe you and it shall be done. I know Your Omnipotence and I also know that distance cannot be a barrier between your word and where my servant is. I believe in your authority. That is faith.
Do you have the same conviction on the divinity and omnipotence of God? If yes, it is the Holy Ghost that has convicted you that way. This is the reason why you should believe and count it done. Your freedom will truly come, and you will sit down and relax with your testimonies. Don't mind the time it may take for you to see what you have believed. As long as it is God that said it, it is done.
This is what Apostle Peter was saying, Master, we have utilized all professional skills of fishing that we have, yet there was no result to show.
However, since you are omniscient and you have spoken, I will obey you. I
have known so much about you. I have known what you are capable of doing and have witnessed you doing them. I have known your word never fails. Since you are the one telling me to do it, I will do it.
God is the one telling you to believe and trust in him. Go and do it. God is the one telling you He will stand by you and ensure nothing hurts you. Jehovah is the one assuring you and because He is God, don't bother about man's contrary opinion. Don't bother about the Red Sea and those mountains standing before you. Don't even bother about Satan.
Be calm and peaceful because the all-knowing great God has spoken. Understand Him as Paul the apostle did and get yourself calm in the face of every kind of difficulty.
