Don’t Be Afraid Just Believe- A Word by Julie Giordano
There is a raging war against your soul and the point of entry is your
The enemy will try every angle he can to tear down the walls of your belief
system and destroy your mind. He knows that if he can weaken your belief
system it will ultimately crumble, then he will have access to every area
of your life.
Don’t be afraid, “Because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in
the world (John 4:4, KJV).”
Awareness is powerful, and it awakens your eyes to see, ears to hear, and
your spirit to be aware of the war all around you. Awareness to God’s truth
and authority will empower you to:
- Walk in freedom;
- Take your territory back;
- Retrieve everything that was stolen;
- Protect and defend your belief system and your mind.
You have full authority to be the gatekeeper of your mind.
It takes faith to walk in your kingdom authority. It’s up to you to
exercise your faith and dare to believe God’s Word is true.
One example of great faith is in Mark 5 when the synagogue ruler, Jarius
begged Jesus to come and pray over his daughter that was dying.
“And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly,
saying, ‘My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay
Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live (Mark
As Jesus was walking with Jarius to his house, a huge crowd was following
them. Through the multitude, a woman with an issue of blood reached for
Jesus’ garment in desperation to be healed. Jesus felt the healing virtue
go out from Him and she was healed.
I can only imagine how Jarius must have felt in his own desperation, as he
waited on Jesus as He ministered to the woman with the issue of blood.
Celebrating one miracle while he was waiting for his daughter’s miracle…
and time was ticking.
Faith is always the hardest – in the waiting!
“While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of
Jarius, the synagogue leader. ‘Your daughter is dead,’ they said. ‘Why
bother the teacher
Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just
believe’ (Mark 5:35-36, NIV).”
I love that Jesus spoke a word before Jarius was able to fully respond.
Jesus charged him to believe against all fear.
Jarius had to trust and believe that:

- Jesus was able to heal his daughter;
- That God was more than enough;
- His daughter would live again;
- Against all odds;
- While his faith was on trial before the entire city.
I can only assume that was the longest walk of Jarius’ life.
- What would you do?
- How would you respond if you were Jarius?
- How would you respond if you were in the crowd?
When they approached the home, the people were crying and wailing. Jesus
commanded all of them to leave. They mocked Him because He said, “The child
is not dead but asleep.”
I would have loved to have encountered every. single. moment.
Wow, I bet the atmosphere was so charged with faith – it only took one
“Jesus took her by the hand and said to her, ‘Talitha
!’ (which means ‘Little girl, I say to you, get up! Mark 5:41, NIV’).”
Immediately, the girl stood up.
I hope your faith is stirred and charged with excitement. If Jesus will do
it for Jarius, He will do it for you!!!
- What are you afraid of right now?
- What has died in your life?
- Don’t be afraid, just believe!!!
It’s a choice, so be willing to walk on that journey with Jesus back to
your place of death… back to that thing that seems dead in your life.
- Remove all the doubters from the room;
- Stand over it; and
- Declare for it to rise.
Use your authority as you stand on the Word of God and watch what God will
Don’t be afraid, just believe!!!
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
