Matthew 8:5-13 KJV
(5)  And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
(6)  And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
(7)  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
(8)  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
(9)  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
(10)  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
(11)  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
(12)  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(13)  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. 

  • Jesus declared, the faith of the centurion was greater than any ones faith that resided in all Israel.
  • In verse 13 Jesus said "as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee".
  • How we believe determines the outcome.

Matthew 15:21-28 KJV
(21)  Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
(22)  And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
(23)  But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
(24)  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
(25)  Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
(26)  But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
(27)  And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
(28)  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

  • Notice Jesus told the woman "great is thy faith;be it unto thee even as thou wilt". It would be unto her even as she would have it. Not as he would have it. We basically control our own destiny based on our faith in God and his word. God and his word are one.
  • This woman had great faith and because of her great faith her daughter was able to be delivered from a demon.
  • How we believe determines the outcome.

Mark 2:1-12 KJV
(1)  And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
(2)  And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
(3)  And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
(4)  And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
(5)  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
(6)  But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
(7)  Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
(8)  And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
(9)  Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
(10)  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
(11)  I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
(12)  And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

  • This is an example of people adding their faith together for a common goal.
  • How we believe determines the outcome.

Matthew 18:19 KJV
(19)  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

  • Jesus talks about how individuals can add their faith together.
  • How we believe determines the outcome.

Matthew 9:18-26 KJV
(18)  While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
(19)  And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.
(20)  And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
(21)  For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
(22)  But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
(23)  And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
(24)  He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
(25)  But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
(26)  And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

  • How we believe determines the outcome.
  • Thy faith hath made thee whole.

Matthew 9:27-31 KJV
(27)  And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.
(28)  And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
(29)  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
(30)  And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
(31)  But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

  • How we believe determines the outcome.
  • According to your faith be it unto you.
