Only Believe

Most of us are either going through a tough situation or just came out of one, so we can relate to the stories in the Bible that talk about people going through painful situations, and just when they think it can’t get any worse, it does. Jairus had a daughter who was at the point of death. He had heard about the miracles that Jesus was doing and the pain of losing his daughter was greater than his pride. You see, he was a high level political leader whose peers were seeking way to destroy the Son of God. After telling Jesus of his problem, news comes to him that Jesus was no longer needed because his daughter had died. Jesus tells Jairus not to fear but only believe. This was a life changing moment for Jairus. He could either believe in his circumstances or he could choose to believe in Jesus. He chose Jesus, and as a result, his daughter received her healing.

Believers have to make a choice when they are faced with difficult circumstances. We are to walk by faith and not by sight. God wants us to focus on the fact that all things are possible for those who believe. It doesn’t matter how bad your situation looks right now; it may even get worse before it gets better, but the power of Almighty God is not lessen by the degree of difficulty of a problem. God can do everything! The responsibility of the Christian is to only believe. The Word of God tells us not to be anxious about anything but to pray about everything. God will not get involved if you do not involve Him. Depend on the strength of God and you will be victorious over the trials and temptations you will face in your life. Do not fear – only believe!
