"As thou hast believed"

In the account in Matthew of the healing of the centurion's servant, Jesus set forth one of the prime requisites of healing, namely, faith in God. It is stated: "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."

If one follows the various healings of the Master, he will find similar statements made prior to the consummation of healings. "Believe ye that I am able to do this?" and, "According to your faith be it unto you," said Jesus on another occasion. Thus it would seem that some recognition of the willingness and ability of God to help was an important factor in these healings which Jesus accomplished.
