God’s Word is Limitless

John 4:50, “Jesus said to him, “Go; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way.

[Important to note here that this man first believed the spoken word of God. He then acted upon his belief by taking the positive action of leaving and returning home, expecting his son will live. Our faith in anything will always be followed by our reciprocating positive action].

JOHN 4:46-54

Jesus didn’t have to touch the child. He didn’t have to send anything home with the father to affect the cure. All He did was speak and the son was instantly healed (v. 53).

This man had traveled over fifteen miles from Capernaum to Cana to find Jesus. Therefore, the son was not within ‘earshot” so that Jesus’ words sparked some cord of hope in his heart, thereby releasing God’s power. No, Jesus’ spoken word had so much power that no barriers (such as time or space) had any affect on it whatsoever.

This is hard for us to comprehend. We spend an entire lifetime learning physical limitations and adapting to them. But there are no limits to the power of God’s word. Jesus created everything in this physical universe by His words, and that creation will respond to anything He says.

The Lord gave His Word to the Jews but they didn’t believe it. Hebrews 4:2 says, “…the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it].” We have been given God’s words too, in the Bible. If we will speak God’s Word in faith, we will get the same results that Jesus did here.

  1. Amen! God’s word really is limitless and He reveals it to us precept upon precept, like layers that build one upon the other. It can be simple enough for a child to understand, but also complex enough to keep you busy trying to figure it all out for a lifetime.

    1. You’ve said this very well. He reveals it to us precept upon precept.
      I remember once Joseph Prince relaying how God reveals wisdom to us like rain drops falling to the earth – Imagine, he said, if all the waters would fall on the earth in ONE BIG PLOP instead of in tiny droplets. It would damage everything, including all the buildings, nothing could survive.
      I find I really love the ongoing revelations of God, one can never exhaust the wisdom, knowledge and understanding He gives to us, and there’s ALWAYS something glorious to look forward to.
      Thanks for a great insight as usual.
