I've been looking at the text in Luke 8, in which Jesus is expounding on the word and thereafter healing the sick and raising the dead. The words,

50. Fear not: only believe, and she shall be made whole.

This is in response to a wayward, unfounded act of faithless conduct in which a man of the house of the man requiring his child's healing approches the troop led by Christ, diplomatically saying "trouble not the Master, your daugther is already dead."

If Christ were of such a mind, He would have panicked; but He calmly puts the house in order by words of Spiritual encouragement, "Fear not, only believe"!

If He had stopped at this, it would have been enough, but for the sake of Godliness, He goes on to say,

52. Weep not; she is not dead, but sleeps.

It is said that they "laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.".

I am glad that He did not encourage them to "know"; but only to "believe", for this was what was necessary.

Many times, friends, we are cumbered by much worry and strain, chiefly because the things we know are there, they tend to scare us. We fail to hear the inner voice of the word of God that brings us faith ("Romans 10vs17").

Pay attention to the Lord by way of the Spirit, it is Him that brings us this word of salvation. When we are mindful of the things of heaven, we become conquerors of the challenges on earth, we pray, In Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
