The Man Believed
MAY 19, 2022
Daily Reading – 1 Kings 3-5 / John 4:39-54
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
John 4:49-50 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
I love this story of the man whose son was almost to die. He found Jesus and asked Him to come with him to heal his son. Jesus said, “Go thy way; thy son liveth.” I love the next line. “And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him.” No asking for proof, no additional begging, no doubts of what was said, he simply believed the word of Jesus.
Too often, it seems as though people want God to prove Himself to them before they will believe. Jesus says, believe and you will see many wonderful things. I wonder how many people will never accept Christ or see His wondrous work in their life because they got it backwards?
