WORD OF THE WEEK
DON’T BE AFRAID ONLY BELIEVE
Believing What God Says About You
It is very important that you believe what God says about you. There are many reports about you from many outsiders including doctors, creditors, friends, and the report or opinion you have of yourself, but it is super imperative that you believe God’s report about you. Whose report will you believe, we shall believe the report of the Lord. Jesus came to earth to tell you what God has said and is saying about you.
Jesus tells us in John 1:12 that those who received him have the right to become God’s children. In John 15:15 he tells you that you are his friend. Everything Jesus told you that God said about you, you should strive with all of your inner-most being to be that. Reject and refuse any other words or defining of you that is not given by God.
A Greater Authority for a Desperate Situation
The power resting in Jesus was more powerful than the authority of Jairus as ruler of the synagogue. Jairus submitted himself and all his authority at the feet of Jesus recognizing that Jesus’ spiritual authority is greater than any earthy authority. This authority is given to us as children of the Living God.
Jairus was in a desperate situation, his 12 year old daughter had died. He went to Jesus because he knew that he could solve hard cases. When you get into a hard situation before you take it to any one take it to Jesus in prayer, because he can solve hard cases.
Carnal Reports vs Spiritual Reports
When the report came that Jairus’ daughter was dead a messenger told him not to trouble Jesus anymore because it was too late. Jesus immediately began to talk life and spirit. They said she was dead, Jesus said she was asleep. They said don’t bother the Teacher anymore it’s over, Jesus said, “ONLY BELIEVE!”
As you begin to pray and develop your spiritual mind, your words will change and become more spirit and life. You will begin to speak what God is saying concerning your situation rather than what the carnal reports are saying. When man says it’s over and it’s too late, God is still saying, “ONLY BELIEVE!”
