“Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Mark 5:36b (NIV)
I’m sure that Jairus’s crisis made him feel confused, afraid, and without hope. Jesus’ words to Jairus in the midst of crisis can speak to us today as well. “Don’t be afraid. Just believe.” Have faith; trust Me. Jesus knows there is always hope and promise.
The next time we feel hopeless and afraid, we need to look at our problems from Jesus’ eyes. He is the source of all hope and promise.
Dear heavenly Father, sometimes when I consider how long I have been suffering with my chronic illness and chronic pain I feel as though I should give up all hope. But then I feel the comfort of Your Spirit as He shows me through Your Word and Your creation just how much You love me. For in You is my hope and strength. Thank you Father that I can run to You whenever I feel afraid. You alone will chase away all my fears. In Jesus precious name, amen.
