Faith of a Soldier

Read Luke 7-8
These chapters include the story of the Centurion and Jesus.   The Centurion comes and asks for Jesus to heal his servant. Jesus says sure I’ll follow you, lead the way. The Centurion says no just say he is healed and I will believe you that it’s done. Jesus is touched, wow why can’t more people have faith like this. He tells this to the whole crowd.

When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed him,  “I say to you I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel.”
Luke 7:9 NKJV

I struggle with my faith in God for things big and small. I really felt this verse speaking to me. Have faith that when he says it’s done, it’s done. Even if you don’t see it right away. I want my faith in God to make Him say wow that’s faith.

God,
Give me the faith of the Centurion! Strengthen my belief! Don’t let what my eyes see take away from what my soul hears.
Amen
