BELIEVE – Part 1 of 3

Mark 5:36 “
36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.” (NKJV)

Have you ever been in a moment where you didn’t believe that God was with you or for you?  Have seen yourself in a situation where you questioned if God cared about you?  If you have, you are probably not alone as every person may struggle with these thoughts that battle their minds from time to time.  Fear is a result of thoughts being outside the will of God.  This is why Jesus said, “Do no be afraid; only believe”.

Jesus could see the fear on the people he was speaking to at the moment and counter-acted that fear with something else.  That something else is called – FAITH!  Faith is used in many contexts but I would simplify the meaning to one thing – believe in God, believe in His word, believe in the Holy Spirit, believe in JESUS!

Let’s remember 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  The enemy fights us through fear and but the Bible says in 2 Cor 10:4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”  Our weapon rests in God – the power of BELIEVE.  You can’t truly believe without faith.  Faith is the power behind believe.  When we believe like Jesus commanded we see the power and fruit of faith in action.

In the next blog of this series we will look at the power of BELIEVE through Moses and the children of Israel.  When God calls us he doesn’t reveal the entire path or challenges that come with the journey.  But through the power of faith, we can overcome any and all things!

Are you blessed?

Praying for you!
