But as the disciples stood around him, he rose up, and entered into the city. On the next day he went out with Barnabas to Derbe. Act...

Do Not Be Afraid

  • While he still spoke, one from the ruler of the synagogue's house came, saying to him, 'Your daughter is dead. Don't trouble the Teacher.' But Jesus hearing it, answered him, 'Don't be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed.' Luke 8:49 WEB

    Jairus had a twelve-year-old daughter that was in bed deathly sick. He came to Jesus, fell down at His feet, and begged Him to come and heal her. Jesus went with him, but on the way someone met them and told them: 'Your daughter is dead.'

    Jesus told him: 'Don't be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed.' A short time later, his daughter was well. This had to be a very difficult test for Jairus, but afterwards he had a testimony and I am sure that it contained these words: 'Don't be afraid, just believe, and it will be well.'

    There will always be those that will tell you things that are contrary to what God has told you. Fear will always be the opposite of faith. Unbelief will always be the opposite of believing. When the Lord has spoken to you, hang onto it and do not listen to the negative voices.

    No matter what circumstance you face today, these words still hold eternal power that you can claim for your very own. Do not give into fear. Believe the word of God, and it will be well for you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me to stand on Your word and grow my trust in You. Forgive me of my fears and my lack of trust in the past and show Yourself strong in my life. Speak to me in a way that I understand and send the Comforter to me today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen. Do not fear is repeated over and over in the Bible, because with fear there is no faith, no trust, no believing that God is able and that God is good and that God is love.

Amen. To fear or worry are forms of not trusting God. Be anxious for nothing, for God will supply to all. Just keep your Heart

open to Him in all circumstances. Have a Wonderful Day, because this is the day the Lord has made. Be glad and rejoice in it.
