Don’t Be Afraid

“Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.’ Mark 5:36”

Sometimes what we need is just a word of encouragement, isn’t it?

And God gives a word—to the overwhelmed.  To the downcast.  To us.  He urges, “Don’t’ be afraid; just believe.”

Believe that He can.  Believe that He cares.  Believe that He comes.

Mark it down.  You will never go where God is not.  You may be transferred, enlisted, commissioned, or re-assigned….But brand this truth on your heart—Jesus promised, “I am with you always.”  Don’t be afraid, just believe!

Make your fear a visitor and not a resident.  Hasn’t fear taken enough?  Enough smiles?  Enough restful nights?  Enough exuberant days?

Make it a day changer to meet your fears with faith.  Choose to make every day—a great day!
