I shared my heart on my Facebook page, Lisa Shaw: You Are Beautiful In God’s Eyes, this morning, and I wanted to share it with you here on my Blog to encourage anyone who needs it. Mark 5:36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.”
That moment when you realize that ONLY GOD can set it right– only GOD. You don’t have the power or ability to make it happen BUT you do have the power and ability to ask, trust and believe in Him. Just imagine overhearing the conversation between Jesus and Jarius (Mark 5 and Luke 8 when all seemed hopeless, lost and over in the situation for Jarius’ daughter, but then Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” The amplified version says: “Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.” Oh my goodness I can shout on that right now!
Whatever it is that you can’t handle, fix, complete, change or set right, turn it over to God and in that moment your soul will hear, “Don’t be afraid, only believe!!!” I’m right there with you, believing, trusting and standing by faith for a situation that seems hopeless and is aggravating me to no end because I can’t make it right for that person whom I love BUT I know, without a doubt that GOD can–my faith is STRONG and I won’t doubt HIM, and so I am trusting that the season that person is in is for their good…lessons are being learned…more testimony is being gathered in their life….a plan is set, a purpose spoken over them before the beginning of time and so I stand praying, watching, believing and knowing that Jesus has His eye on the situation and He cares! No fear because I ONLY BELIEVE in Him!
Whatever you may be facing for yourself or someone you love, draw close to the Well of Living Water and find the refreshment you need to splash on your soul in order to say, I won’t be afraid because I only believe! Ahh, that gives the soul REST! It was good sharing with all of you today. As I sign off I pray the peace that only God can supply, be with each one of you as you lean in closer to His presence.
I pray that you will be encouraged in the message above and know that even in the midst of the situations that we can’t fix; those situations when seem to wear us out; we can say, I won’t fear! I will only believe God!
