What Do You Believe?
…He said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe." – Mark 5:36
When we are faced with a challenge in life, we can either choose to be afraid, meditating on what is wrong and how we can’t fix it, or we can choose to believe what the Word of God says.
When we are diagnosised with a deadly or chronic disease, do we fear, meditating on all that can happen? Or do we choose to believe what the Word says in Psalm 91:16 that with long life will God satisfy us and show us His salvation or in Psalm 118:17 that we will not die but life and declare the works of the Lord.
When we are struggling to pay our bills, do we fear, or do we remind ourselves that God supplies all our needs (Philippians 4:19).
We can either meditate on the good promises of God’s Word. Or we can meditate on what we see. The choice is ours.
