“Speak the Word, Lord.”

“Speak the Word, Lord.”

Luke 7:6-10 (NLT)

So Jesus went with them. But just before they arrived at the house, the officer sent some friends to say, “Lord, don’t trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor. I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed. I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!” And when the officer’s friends returned to his house, they found the slave completely healed.

Perhaps, like this officer, you know that only Jesus can meet the need in your life, but you feel unworthy to be in His presence, much less receive His blessing because of your sins or your history of spiritual indifference. Today let your desperation overcome your guilt and the unworthiness you feel. Dare to ask Him for help. Believe that with just a word that comes out of his mouth the miracle you need will happen. You will be surprised how eager He is to help you.

You may want to pray something like this: Father God, I recognize that I am not worthy to ask, but I believe that Your mercy is greater than my sin, and Your love is unconditional. In faith I receive this Word for the miracle I need to take place. I ask you to speak the word, Lord, in Your Name, Amen!

Have a blessed day!
