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
Jesus has a way of proving that He was here for everyone. Here a woman came out of nowhere and told Jesus that her daughter was dead and asked Him to do something about it.
A ‘ruler of the synagogue,’ one of those religious fellows, came and told her not to bother Jesus.
Jesus jumped in on her behalf, ‘listen, don’t be afraid. Just have the faith to believe me.’
These are words of great comfort to anyone who encounters Jesus. Fears and emotions may say ‘stay away.’ Friends and family might say ‘don’t go overboard.’ Taking that step of faith to trust Jesus can be a fearful thing to do.
But Jesus wants us to have the faith to just simply believe Him and not to worry about all the rest. Just believe, don’t be full of cares. Just believe, cast all your concerns of Jesus because He cares for you.
