178- Have Courage, Not Fear!
December 11, 1985
Mark 5:9 We may ask a demon his name.
5:19 We are to report to our families and friends the great things the Lord has done for us.
5:28 We are to BELIEVE. Believing does make something happen. God listens. God works on our believing! Believing cam make us well. Believing in Jesus Christ, His power, His desire to touch us, His love for us.
5:36 He wants us to believe and not fear…DO NOT BE AFRAID ANY LONGER, ONLY BELIEVE (AND KEEP ON BELIEVING)
Mark 6:6 Jesus cannot work with unbelief. Be careful when with your own people. They will say, “it’s only George* and Grace’s* girl, the teacher.”
6:7 Jesus wants us to use authority over unclean spirits.
6:8 When we go, we take VERY LITTLE.
6:12 He sent people out in twos to preach repentance, heal sick, cast out.
6:20 John the Baptist preached, to His own death, but lifting up Jesus.
6:31-32 Jesus wants us to rest a while and get away from ministry for a time.
6:50 Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid.
I am in your circumstances, Georgann.
Do not be afraid.
Mark 7:15 What I SAY defiles me, and what I DO.
7:20-23 Those rotten things come out of my heart—evil thoughts and evil deeds and evil words come right out of my heart.
I will go to prayer to ask for a CLEAN heart, pure heart, consciousness of Christ.
Also, the Pastoral meeting is tonight. I must be given over to my Lord.
