Matthew 8:5-13 As Jesus entered the village of Capernaum, a Roman captain came up in a panic and said, “Master, my servant is sick. He can’t walk. He’s in terrible pain.” Jesus said, “I’ll come and heal him.” “Oh, no,” said the captain. “I don’t want to put you to all that trouble. Just give the order and my servant will be fine. I’m a man who takes orders and gives orders. I tell one soldier, ‘Go,’ and he goes; to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” Taken aback, Jesus said, “I’ve yet to come across this kind of simple trust in Israel, the very people who are supposed to know all about God and how he works. This man is the vanguard of many outsiders who will soon be coming from all directions–streaming in from the east, pouring in from the west, sitting down at God’s kingdom banquet alongside Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Then those who grew up ‘in the faith’ but had no faith will find themselves out in the cold, outsiders to grace and wondering what happened.” Then Jesus turned to the captain and said, “Go. What you believed could happen has happened.” At that moment his servant became well.
We had a really good meeting at Living Life Recovery last night. The Holy Spirit was present and His presence continued with me as I went home, But when I went to bed I was unable to sleep due to pain in my leg (which I believe is spiritual attack) Unable to sleep I began to talk with the Holy Spirit, who encouraged me to keep going as I am on the right track. He showed me in or discussions the next steps for Living Life Recovery and reminded me through the song above of the power of music and “Walking in the Light of God” through battles of spiritual warfare.
