I would like to share with you my daily devotional...

Done As You Have Believed

Matthew 8 :13
{Then Jesus said to the centurion,"Go your way;and as you have believed,so let it be done for you."And his servant was healed that same hour.}

What are you expecting God to do for you today?Do you believe that God will respond according to your expectation?When Jairus,distraught at the sickness that was claiming his daughter's life,fell at Jesus' feet,he entreated Jesus to personally come to his house to lay His hands on his daughter so that she would be healed.(Mark 5:23.)
But do you know that Jesus can heal at a distance?He didn't need to go to Jairus'house to heal his daughter.Still,Jesus went and didn't even chide Jarirus for his little faith.He met Jairus' expectation-his little daughter was raised from the dead that day.(vv.41-42)
Why do I say Jarius had little faith?Because there was a Roman centurion who came to Jesus about his servant suffering at home.He recognized the power Jesus had and asked only that Jesus "speak a word,and my servant will be healed"(Matthew 8:8).Jesus told him,"Go your way;and as you have believed,so let it be done for you."True to the centurion's expectation,his servant was healed that same hour.
My friend there is no particular level your faith must reach before God gives you what you are asking for.Your faith does not initiate God's giving.He has already given to you all things that pertain to life and godliness.2Peter1:3)His blessings are pressing on you already!Regardless of the level of faith you are at,He will respond.Jarius needed Jesus to go to his house to lay His hands on his daughter,and Jesus did.The centurion only needed Jesus to speak a word for his servant to be healed,and Jesus did.He met both their expectations.
My friend,don't fix your eyes on how much or how little faith you have.Fix your eyes on the One who loves you,who has already given you what you need.When you come to Him,simply believe that He is waiting to meet your expectations.He will say to you,"Go your way;and as you have believed,so let it be done for you."

I just love knowing that were ever we are at God will respond to us and our needs.I know sometimes it doesn't look like it or we say God I asked you and you know my needs why is this happening, why am I having to go through this but you know what I have seen God do and have come to know that even thought the circumstance(s) may look bleak or hopeless God will bring you through it no matter what it is and if you keep on believing in Him and putting all your trust in Him and stop trying to do it ourselves but really let it go and say OK God I'm done trying cause I can't do it I can't fix this.Only He can and as soon as we let go and move out of the way He can finally work on our behalf...So have faith in knowing he loves you no matter what you are already forgiven and he already saved you so go and have peace about what ever it is that may seem so big to us cause it's so small to God he will fix it he will heal you He will provide for you He will do it for you because He loves you...
Abundant Blessings for you today and everyday...Emilie M.
