Sometimes a person is following Jesus, gave his life to Him, is doing the chain of prayer, obeying the Word and even doing everything the pastor has instructed him to do. But instead of seeing good results, all that he sees is more problems, setbacks, bad news and losses. In those moments, you don’t understand why.

One thing I can tell you is…don’t give up. This is normal for everyone. Especially those that are beginning in there faith. Just like in the case of Jairus who’s daughter was sick. He left the house to seek for Jesus, but when he came back his daughter was dead. Maybe you have seen this in your life. You are seeking Jesus or following Him, but the situation is getting worse and worse.

Do not be sad and frustrated and do not give up. This just shows that you are going in the right direction. When Jesus arrived at Jairus’ house, everyone said “she is dead”. But Jesus said, “she is sleeping”. And He took the girl by the hand, and the girl received a new life. But imagine if Jairus had given up and just said, “Lord it’s too late”, or decided in anger to blaspheme God? But no, he just obeyed what Jesus said. Jesus had said, “Do not be afraid; only believe.” So I tell you dear friend, do not be afraid, only believe.

If you are looking for good results, but all you are finding is bad results… don’t give up… don’t be afraid. You are on the right track. Keep going, keep using your faith. Actually, do more than what you have been doing thus far. Do not let evil overcome you, but overcome evil by your faith.

The Universal Church is a ministry that is open every single day, nonstop. Faith 24/7.

May the God of the Bible Bless all of You,
