God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). God will use His power on behalf of those who seek Him. The centurion in the Bible had diligently sought Jesus, believing Jesus could meet his need. He believed the word of Jesus Christ was all that was needed. Jesus did not have to be present for the need to be met. As a centurion, all he had to do was issue an order and it was carried out, whether he was present or not. He was a sovereign commander. He was saying, How much more are you, O Lord. Speak the word only and my need shall be met. What a forceful and powerful lesson on faith for us all.
