That is my encouragement to you today.  Why don’t you join me in taking God at His Word?

JESUS looked at Jairus at the lowest moment of his life and commanded him, “Do not be afraid, only believe…”  Mark 5:36
Meditate on the following scriptures for a moment then I’m coming right back.

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.   He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”    Isaiah 40:28-31

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.  Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;…” 

“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. 40 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.”   Psalm 37:4-7a, 39-40

How about that!  Now let’s reach out and take His Word.  It’s fresh bread just out of the oven.  Feed upon it and let it nourish your spirit until all you see is JESUS.  And the peace which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mind through Christ.

JESUS is looking at you at this moment of your life and commanding you, “Do not be afraid, only believe…”  Mark 5:36  He has heard and seen everything you are facing today just like He heard Jairus’ servant tell him that his daughter had died. Only JESUS can hear news like that and say, “Do not be afraid.”

Your breakthrough is standing right next to you.  But remember the second part.  “Only Believe.”  That means focus on His Word and nothing else.  It is possible to believe God’s Word and something else.

Not this time.  Not here.  Not now.  Not in My House!! 

Stand your ground!  Take what God says and completely refuse any alternative.  Command every storm and every obstacle to “Be Remvoved” and Stand Your Ground with the God-given authority you possess as a believer.

Take God at His Word and receive what you believe today!     

I call you a Champion,
