John 4:49 The nobleman said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies!” 50 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.

Prior to any evidence of his son being healed, the nobleman believed the word of Jesus. The man believed without seeing. It wasn’t until a day later the nobleman received confirmation of his son’s healing (v. 51-53).

Can you imagine the doubt that attempted to flood his mind? The last time he saw his son, he was at the point of death. All his faith was wrapped in the word of Jesus. The nobleman had a choice. He could believe the word of Jesus or believe the thoughts of doubt. His belief in the word of Jesus caused his son to be healed.

There are going to be times where we don’t have any sensory evidence to confirm what we’re standing in faith for; and what we’re standing in faith for may not happen instantly. All we have is our belief in the Word of God.

During our time of belief, thoughts of doubt may attempt to flood our minds, but like the nobleman, if we can continue to believe the word of God, what we believe will come to pass. Only believe.
