One Year Bible Reading

Matthew 8:10

“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!’”

I would think that it would be somewhat difficult to awe the Son of God. After all, the Creator of the World has seen and done some rather amazing things. What did Jesus hear to cause Him to marvel? A Roman officer, a centurion, came to Him to plead for the healing of his servant. Jesus agreed to come and heal the man. The officer referred to his unworthiness for Jesus to come to his house and then mentioned his understanding of authority. Rather than coming to his house he said this to Jesus, “only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.” It was this request that amazed Jesus. The faith that the centurion exhibited captured the attention of Jesus…and it will capture the attention of heaven today. During this season of prayer and fasting for 21 days you and I should expect an increase of faith. I would encourage you to exercise your faith when you sense it actively in your life. Your week may change; your year may be different; and your life may never be the same.
