We are often approached by people who believe that the miracle and change will only come when they receive special treatment in long talks with a “Prophet”.
They ask if we can spare enough time to listen to them, because their problem is so big!
They’re in the presence of a “Prophet” who has the authority to make changes, and they want a “psychologist” who can’t solve a thing .
In reality, for those who truly believe, one word (prophecy) is enough.
“Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word (prophecy), and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” Matthew 8:6-10
When a person uses reason, He is able to quickly pieces the puzzle together. Though this man was a Roman and had come from a culture of idolatry, he used his head — an intelligent faith — to take possession of the prophecy!
