"Ignoring what they said, Jesus told him, 'Don't be afraid, just believe.'" (Mark 5:36)
Did you catch that, friends?
"Ignoring what they said"...
I have been so focused on the "don't be afraid, just believe" part of this verse, I have always overlooked the first part.
"Ignoring what they said"
The doubters, the nay-sayers, the Debbie downers, the bullies, the laughing. Ignore them.
Or worse... those voices in your own head whispering "It's impossible", "It's never gonna happen", "you're not ___ enough". Reminding you of all your past attempts and failures.
Jesus dismisses all of them with these five little words "Don't be afraid, Just BELIEVE"
