“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”” Mark 5:36, NKJV
You’ve heard the report, and before fear can grip you, Jesus will speak to you through His Word. The Bible tells us, as soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue. What did Jesus hear that required an immediate response? He heard, “Trouble the master no more. Your daughter is dead.” Jesus heard those words and immediately canceled them with, “Do not be afraid. Only believe.” Maybe you’ve heard a false report come to you. Follow the example of Jesus, and as soon as you hear the false report, say “I will not be afraid. I will only believe.” Whose report do you believe, my sister? I challenge you only to believe the report of the Lord!
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for speaking directly to my report. I cancel every false report with the truth of your word. Everything you said in your Word about me is true, and everything the devil says is a lie. I believe what your Word says, and that’s what I speak from my mouth. I am healed by the stripes of Jesus. I am free by the power of Jesus! Thank you, Father, for activating my faith and helping me not to be afraid, but only believe. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
(Read Mark 5:36-42; Isaiah 53:1, 4-5)
