TIME FOR TRUST

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: Thursday , September 23 2021.

TOPIC: TIME FOR TRUST

DEVOTIONAL READING: Mark 5

KEY VERSE: As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. (Mark 5:36).

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: JAIRUS

We don’t know how many remedies Jairus tried in attempting to help his little daughter, but he certainly was convinced that JESUS was his last hope. His little girl was dying. Jairus desperately threw himself at JESUS’ feet and begged for help. To his relief, JESUS agreed to come.

The next few minutes must have been agonizing for Jairus. The pressing crowds made progress difficult. JESUS stopped to heal a woman. Then Jairus heard his name being called. Someone arrived from his house with the crushing news his little girl; was dead. Their well-meaning but misguided advice was to accept the facts and get on with life. JESUS wasn’t needed any longer.

Fortunately, JESUS overheard the news but His words to Jairus must have encouraged and bewildered the father simultaneously: “This isn’t time for fear but for trust.” Jairus, JESUS and three of the disciples found a grieving and unbelieving crowd who ridiculed JESUS for saying that the girl was only sleeping. After escorting the mourners outside, JESUS spoke to the child and she awakened.

The words JESUS spoke to Jairus ought to echo frequently in our hearts. Fear always makes a situation hopeless, but trust in GOD keeps hope alive.

Those who trust in GOD often find they get back what they thought they would had lost.

THOUGHT FOR THE Day:
The Antidote For Fear Is To Trust In God.

Further Study: Mark 5:21-43, Luke 8:40-56.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:

  1. Every spirit of fear in life, depart from my life now in the Name of Jesus.
  2. Let the floodgates of God’s blessings, overtake my life in the Name of Jesus Christ.
  3. My destiny, arise and shine and manifest God’s Glory in Jesus Name.
  4. Every enemy of my salvation, die in Jesus Name. Amen!

Be Lifted!
