50But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.

Do Not Fear....ONLY BELIEVE
Do you really trust in God?
What makes you doubt sometimes?
Is it the uncertainty of the battle at hand?
Is it that you just might not trust God to come through for you?
So then are you saying He isn't faithful?
But wait the bible speaks of His faithfulness and Love!
IT ALL OVER THE WORD OF GOD!
Jesus came proving God's love and faithfulness so why do you act in
What ARE you afraid of? I think you are more afraid that He might not come to deliver your circumstance, then your are sure He will.
So why are many Christians afraid of the "worst case scenrios" in their battles?
Be it losing a home
losing their lives.
I truly think that fears hold people back from truly trusting and receiving the Lord's best and His
Some Christians may shrink back and because of fears, are blinded by the reality of their situation and then are not truly
TRUSTING THE LORD
People can become so paralyzed by their fear that they believe the worst case will happen.
POSSIBLY LOSING EVERYTHING!!!
So then what is the fruit of their lives then......
They do LOSE
then what do they say.....?
"God's in control.....It was His plan for such and such thing to happen"
But then was it really His plan for this destruction or loss to happen in their life?
Of course it is easier to say that God is in Control....so we won't take any responsibility for our actions or lack of. I wouldn't want my child to say "My parent is in control" when they failed the test after not studying. Isn't God our Father? Why would we see God as different.
So then are you saying .....He wasn't faithful? He never told us to trust Him and study for the test?
I thought the word says
HE IS FAITHFUL?
so can you please help me see what it is then....
You see how the enemy can bring so much doubt in Christians lives through fear
and when there is fear..... there is no faith.
Which leads me to say that in many occasions in the bible
when people approached Jesus with fear or He sensed fear in their hearts he said
DO NOT FEAR!!!!
49While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
In this case Jairus's daughter had just died and I'm sure fear now came upon his heart that he wasn't quick enough to get Jesus to her. Before Jairus could even speak a word of fear Jesus stopped him with
Why would Jesus speak these words first?
Fear must do something to our faith, trust, and seeing the works of God manifested.
I believe that when we fear, we are then in doubt of God's faithfulness and Love.
Even good Christians pray AFRAID. Why?
Maybe because they really don't trust and know who they serve. They might know about Him, but not KNOW HIM.
Don't fear....ONLY BELIEVE....and KNOW who you LOVE and SERVE!
