Live Beyond Fear–S2-DE11

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?” 

Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” 

Mark 5:35-36, NIV

Jesus Is In Your Boat – S2-DE1

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

They all got into a boat and began to cross over to the other side of the lake. And Jesus, exhausted, fell asleep. Suddenly a violent storm developed, with waves so high the boat was about to be swamped. Yet Jesus continued to sleep soundly. The disciples woke him up, saying, “Save us, Lord! We’re going to die!”

But Jesus reprimanded them, “Why are you gripped with fear? Where is your faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the storm and said, “Be still!” And instantly it became perfectly calm. The disciples were astonished by this miracle and said to one another, “Who is this Man? Even the wind and waves obey his Word.” 

Matthew 8:23-27 TPT

When Suffering Meets Healing

Suddenly, a woman came from behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl for healing. She had been suffering from continual bleeding for twelve years, but had faith that Jesus could heal her. For she kept saying to herself, “If I could only touch his prayer shawl I would be healed.”

Just then Jesus turned around and looked at her and said, “My daughter, be encouraged. Your faith has healed you.” And instantly she was healed! 

Matthew 9:20-22, TPT 

Devotional 

Many can relate to the story of the woman with the issue of blood. She had a bleeding disorder that baffled doctors. Hence, none could figure out exactly how to treat her. So, the woman went through countless procedures to no avail. As a result, she was getting worse and not better.  

She had grown tired of multiple appointments with one specialist after another. And still, there was no cure in sight. After many years without answers and numerous dollars spent—she was at her wits end. The money had run out, and there wasn’t any medical insurance available.  

Undoubtedly, she needed a miracle. Because, she wanted a normal life, free from illness, and the stress it caused. Suddenly, her moment had come—Jesus is near!  The town’s people whispered of the healings that took place in his presence. Indeed, her heart must have raced at the hearing of the Man named Jesus coming through town.
