Devotional For December 27, 2023

The nobleman said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies!” Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
‭‭John‬ ‭4‬:‭49‬-‭50‬

In the urgency of our troubles and trials, we often cry out to the Lord for His immediate help. A desperate father implored Jesus to come and heal his sick and dying child. This man’s plea echoes our own cries in times of distress, seeking immediate relief.

Jesus responded in a way that challenges our understanding of divine intervention. Instead of physically going with the man, He speaks a powerful word of healing: “Go your way; your son lives.” This moment captures the essence of faith — believing in the unseen and trusting the words of Christ.

In our journey of faith, we encounter situations that demand trust beyond what our eyes can perceive. Jesus invites us to believe in His promises, even when circumstances seem dire. The nobleman embraced this faith, and as he walked away, his belief in Jesus’ word transformed his desperate plea into a victory.

Today, let’s approach our challenges with active faith, remembering that the One who speaks life into our situations is worth trusting. Through faith, our circumstances can be transformed by the living word of Jesus. Believe his words!


Lord, help my faith to grow and help me to trust Your word. In every circumstance, let me see Your promise of assurance that You are near. Give me courage to walk in faith. In Jesus’ name, amen.
