BELIEVE – Part 2 of 3

Believe – Part 2 of 3

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)

1. Your Journey Began With His Word 

Exodus 3:10 “Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” Moses and the Children of Israel had a lot of ups and downs together but when God first spoke to Moses that He was going to use Moses to deliver the children of Israel, Moses could barely believe it.  Nonetheless, Moses journey, like yours, will begin with God’s Word over your life.  That word was not a word like you and I know it, but it was alive and life giving with creative power.  When you and another Christian talk, they may be able to encourage, exhort and lift you up through the Bible, but when God speaks it is life altering and demands response.  If the journey of our calling begins with His word then the first step towards it is to believe the word!  Let’s take a step and watch what happens!

2. The Path and Challenges were NOT revealed

Here is something to think about when it comes to the story of Moses and the children of Israel: Although the Exodus and the promise land was prophesied, there were several things that were not specifically given to them.  They had to walk the journey and live off of one thing – BELIEF. The Plagues, the extra beating and labor when Moses appealed to Pharaoh, the escape with the Egyptian army on their backside and the seemingly uncrossable Red Sea.  All the challenges were a part of the journey but the word was the only thing they could hold on to.  Your life may feel this way too but just because you have some challenges, remember that Jesus said DO NOT BE AFRAID; ONLY BELIEVE.  Hold onto the word and it will carry you through every challenge and obstacle in your way – AMEN!

3. You Will Overcome

Just remember that even as Moses walked through the most challenging things of his life, it began after his pursuit of the call.  Don’t lose sight of the fruit of each phase in life of your call.  Remember that every season has a purpose and every season will yield fruit if you let it.  Be full of hope and expectancy through all things – God will never let his word fail you!  Amen, let’s hold on to that today!

I’m praising God for your life and the purpose He has for you!

Praying for you,

Pastor Aaron

BELIEVE – Part 1 of 3

Believe
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!

Pastor Aaron
