MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Friday May 5, 2017
Topic: Are You Afraid?
Text: Luke 8:50
Faith is very indispensable in our daily lives. God expects us express our faith when confronted with greater challenges of life. It is lack of faith that breeds fear and doubts. Jairus came to Jesus requesting that He should come to heal her daughter. On the way, Jairus was informed that the girl was dead and he should not border Jesus any longer. A hopeless situation indeed! Some of us, we will break down in tears. It is my prayers that God will turn every hopeless situation in your life to hopeful situations in Jesus name. When Jesus heard this, He said, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.”
Fear is one of the things that deny us our miracle. Fear arises when we anticipate evil but when our faith is solid, we will excel. Are you afraid of failure, the danger lurking around you, business collapsing, attack, etc? Jesus is saying that you shouldn’t be afraid. There is no need to be afraid no matter the situation.
Jesus told Jairus, do not be afraid. So He is telling you not to be afraid of what has not even happened. As you remove fear and trust God for a great and fruitful future, I decree it shall be so in Jesus name. As you trust Him concerning that project you want to embark upon, He will perfect it for you. Emerson said, “All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Trust God for what you have not seen about your future and your career. Trust Him because He knows the best for you.
Food for Thought: “Beware of despairing about yourself; you are commanded to put your trust in God, and not in yourself” – St. Augustine.
Memory verse: Luke 8 verse 50
Prayer: 1. God, remove fear in me and give me the grace to trust you. 2. God, increase my faith in Jesus name.
