Faith is the result of that action.
Jesus acted on the Word of His Father. He said, "The words that I speak
unto you are not mine but my Father's" John 14:10.
All of the works of Jesus were the result of His words.
Matthew 8:5-13 gives us a record of the Centurian.
8th verse, "But only say the word, and my servant shall be healed."
Jesus spoke the Word.
The healing of the leper, the healing of the woman
with the issue of
blood, and the healing of the man mentioned in Mark
2:3-12 are miracles
performed by His Word.
Matthew 14:23-33 is the story of Peter's walking on
Peter said, "If it be thou, bid me come." Jesus
simply said one word,
"Come." When He did, the waters sustained the
weight of Peter.
Again we see Jesus quieting the sea. It was words
that quieted it. He
simply said, "Peace, be still."
Jesus' faith was in His Word.
