Belief is a powerful thing

Here’s some Monday morning encouragement for your week. I recently looked up some quotes about “belief.” It was some pretty interesting stuff. Check these out:

“For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible.” — Stuart Chase

“In any project the important factor is your belief. Without belief there can be no successful outcome.” — William James

“The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.” — James Allen

Here is what Jesus says to someone about belief:

“But Jesus on hearing this answered him, ‘Do not fear; only believe, and she will be made well.'”

Belief is a powerful thing. Jesus says that if Jairus, the man in this story from the book of Luke, will believe that Jesus is able to heal, his daughter will be healed as he had asked Jesus to do.

What do you believe? Who do you believe in? It’s a big deal. This week, choose to believe in the only thing, the only person, that really lasts and really follows through on promises:  Jesus Christ.
