“Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.’”
This is how Jesus, I think, did a lot of his ministry. Jesus, for example, when they said, “This girl is dead,” he would say, “No, she’s only sick,” and she would rise up. Romans chapter 4 talks about the character of God, that he “quickens the dead and calls things that be not as though they were.”
See, God just says, “This is,” or “This shall become,” or “This will,” and it does. I’m learning more and more that to minister like Christ means more to speak this over you, proclaim this over you more than it is to just tell you to do this. And I want you to receive it today, not only to learn, but I want you to receive and say, “Yes, this is me.”
What I say over you right now is that you trust in God. You put your trust in God. And as you have put your trust in God, God has blessed you and held you together. You are not afraid!
Prayer: Dear Lord, yes, I believe. I receive all the blessings you Holy Word promises me. Amen.
Reflection: What have you doubted that you now believe?
