Say the word
But say the word, and my servant will be healed. (Luke 7:7 NIV)
Just a word from Jesus heals, delivers, encourages. His word is powerful and effectual, it accomplishes the task for which it was set. It changes the atmosphere, it causes the demons to flee and hearts to be set on fire. Faith comes when we hear his whispers – we just need Him to say the word. Whether through quickened bible text or through supernatural hearing, a word form the Lord changes everything, the impossible becomes possible, the mountains are lowered and the valleys are raised up, the opposing opinions and difficult characters are reckoned as softened.
As it says ‘let me see your face,let me hear your voice,for your voice is sweet,and your face is lovely’ (Song of Solomon 2:14 ESV). Your voice is sweet, and it is life, to not hear his voice would be a desert, a sentence that would make you insane. Once you have tasted of the heavenly things of his voice, of the kindness and love, how can you turn? Even in the midst of troubles and testings to hear his voice changes everything. Lord let me hear your voice more clearly than ever before.
