Matthew 8:5-13 Faith

Mar 13, 2022

Today we enjoy a faith encouraging message from our friend, Pastor Jay Baylor. We also spent time to pray for healing miracles. The notes below are helpful in that direction.

Matthew 8:5-13 the faith of the centurion

We believe that God is real. He is alive. He is willing & able to heal you. Every day God chooses to heal people regardless of their level of faith in Him or their lifestyle. You don’t have to have it all together to receive His healing. Rebecca and I have prayed for people and seen documented medical miracles. We know of churches that have recently seen people being healed of HIV and AIDS! Documented medical miracles! This does not negate the value of doctors. It does not negate your need of Jesus and good family. We will be in prayer!

Faith does help!

* Hearing the Word initiates faith.
* Speaking the Word activates faith.
* Doing the Word demonstrates faith.

“O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health.” Psalm 30:2 NLT

“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” Romans 8:11 NLT

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.” Psalm 103:2-3

Praying the Bible builds faith.

“My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.” Proverbs 4:20-22

“The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing.” 1 Corinthians 12:9 NLT

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Proverbs 17:22 NLT

“Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” Acts 4:30 NLT

“I am the Lord who heals you.” Exodus 15:26 NLT

“He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:3-5 NKJV

Matthew 8, Mark 5, & Luke 13 have great stories of Jesus healing.

Psalm 91 – the whole chapter is well worth reading.
