If You Only Believe

My little daughter is very sick. She is close to death. Will You come to my home and pray for her? These were the words of a sad father in Scripture.

My little daughter is very sick. She is close to death. Will You come to my home and pray for her? These were the words of a sad father in Scripture. Jesus said yes, but along the way He kept getting stopped, one interruption after another. Finally, word came back to Him saying, “no need to come. The little girl has died.

They were upset and very distraught. But Jesus said to them, “don’t be afraid, only believe. The little girl will be well.” Notice the phrase, “only believe.” Jesus went to the home, laid hands on the little girl, and she came back to life.

Today, does your situation seem impossible? In the natural, you don’t see how you can get well, or how you can overcome the addiction, or how your family can ever be restored. God is saying to you what He said to them, “if you only believe, I will turn the situation around. If you only believe, breakthroughs are headed your way!”

But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, ‘do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.

(Luke 8:50, NKJV)?

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your hand of victory upon my life. Father, thank You for making a way even when there seems to be no way, despite my unbelief at times. God, I choose to stand in faith. I choose to believe, knowing that You are ready, willing and able to cause me to overcome in this life, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

One the little girl was not dead. Your misquoting the story to your readers.
KJV; Luke 8;
52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.
The keyword here is that she was spiritually dead not physically dead.

53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
Maid is a female domestic servant.

55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.

He told he the spiritual truth. You deceived people by suggesting the maid was dead instead of telling the truth. She was spiritually dead.

Khabouris Codex 3rd Century New Testament Aramaic Translation; Luke 8

8:52 And they were all weeping and wailing for her; but Jeshu said,
Weep not, for she is not dead, but asleep.
8:53 And they laughed at him, for they knew that she was dead.
8:54-b …..put every man forth without. And he took her by the hand,
and called and said, Damsel, arise.*
8:55 And her spirit returned, and she arose. And he directed that they
should give her to eat.
Maid and damsel are full grown women.

.. Dead souls are not raised to spiritual life unless they are told the truth , you just served deceit with milk and cookies.

KJV Matthew 9

22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,

24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

Daughter and Maid are full grown women;

Mark 8;

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Your soul is your mind that has been lied to by the altars of man like you.
