      Dear Beloved,

      TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD

      "Jesus replied, 'You may go. Your son will live.' The man took Jesus
      at his word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants
      met him with the news that his boy was living" (John 4:50-51, NIV).

      The son of a certain nobleman was sick. The man did not want the son
      to die, so he went to Jesus Christ so that He would come and heal the
      sick son miraculously. Jesus Christ knew that he wanted a miracle to
      be performed on his son, but He wanted him to exercise some faith in
      Him. Instead of following him to lay His hand on the sick child, Jesus
      told him to go and believe that the son would live. This nobleman
      believed Jesus Christ. He went back home and found his son well. When
      he made enquiry about when the son got well, he found out that it was
      at the very time that Jesus told him that the son would live. What an
      effectual faith!

      What is your own problem? In what way are you or someone dear to you
      sick? This may not be physical sickness. It may emotional, financial,
      or even spiritual sickness. Have you come to Jesus Christ for a
      miracle? Will you also take Him at His word today?

      Lazarus the brother of Mary and Martha was very sick. The expectation
      of the two sisters was that Jesus Christ would come and heal him. They
      sent to Jesus but He tarried till Lazarus died. Martha and Mary
      accused Jesus of late coming, but He assured them that Lazarus would
      live. Even when He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, Martha
      was arguing with Jesus. "Then Jesus said, 'Did I not tell you that if
      you believed, you would see the glory of God?'" (John 11:40, NIV).

      If you also can call unto Him today, as He promised in Matthew 7:7-8,
      "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and
      the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who
      seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened" (NIV),
      and believe in Him, you will see the glory of God (Matthew 18:19;
      21:22; Mark 11:24; John 14:13; 16:24). Take Him at His word!

      In His service,
