“Don’t be afraid. Just believe, and your daughter will be made well.” Luke 8:50 NCV
I’m already behind in the Scripture memorization but still picked a verse hoping to catch up. This verse was an immediate answer to prayer for me this last week. I was sitting in the neurologist’s office with my daughter and was praying very specifically for some areas of her healing as I waited while she went in to see the doctor. After I prayed, I picked up my iPad to read a little and the first thing I saw was this verse in the middle of a page highlighted in yellow no less. It took my breath away to see such an immediate and direct answer to the concerns I had just placed before God. Anyway, it’s an important one to remember, not only for its promise but for the faith it encouraged inside me last week.
Isn’t God amazing in His provision and timing to minister to us right where we need it! I am most thankful for the peace that comes with this understanding.
I have neglected Sunday’s song the last couple of weeks, but as always, I invite you to comment with your own prayer requests and I will join you in prayer, especially claiming these promises to just believe and not fear.
