Pearl 295: Controlling Fear

TOPIC: Faith and Focus

"Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus,
'Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed'" - Luke 8:50.

The report came that Jairus' daughter was dead. Jesus told Jairus to ignore the report and trust God, for his daughter's healing was still within reach if he controlled his fear and exercised faith. That is a good formula for you to follow: listen to Jesus and not the circumstances, control your fear and maintain your faith focus. Where are you focusing on a negative report about the facts? Are you afraid because of what you have seen or heard? Can you see how important it is to restore and maintain your faith focus?

Lord, I am aware that I have a tendency to focus on what is seen rather than what is unseen. Faith requires that I learn to focus on You and not on the situation in which I find myself, otherwise I succumb to fear. Teach me, Lord, to keep my eyes on You and speak to me as You did to Jairus to help me when I stumble.
