Mark 5:36 (KJV)
"As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe."
Fear started to fill the heart of Jairus. He pleads with Jesus for his daughter and then it begins to appear that the Lord is taken up with other things when a woman needing healing halts the Lord's way to heal his daughter. Then in the midst of that delay news arrives that the little girl is dead and not to bother the master!
Could you imagine the heart of Jairus by this time is shattered with fear and dread. Jesus hears these fateful words and immediately says to this broken man - "be not afraid, only believe".
Whatever may be the most disasterous news that may come to us, the Word of the Lord is - "Only believe". The same full assurance the Psalmist announces -
"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD." [Psalm 112:7.]
The word "fixed" has the meaning of being "set up". Faith is a heart matter; "with the heart man believeth unto righteousness" [Romans 10:10.] The Lord is above all and he is always and at all times RIGHT and we can from our hearts BELIEVE and be fixed trusting in him regardless of the most severe circumstance. Jesus could have said to Jairus (as he has on another occasion) "your daughter is healed, go in peace" but he drew the whole matter to a crisis of faith and much more than Jairus taking things to Jesus as a last resort. The Lord at that shattering moment; through his word to that distraught father lifted his heart into the rest of faith. Notice, that as soon as Jesus heard the sad news announced, that the man's daughter is dead, he gave an immediate answer to Jairus how to face such calamitous news. The Lord is right there with you. He knows all about your need and broken heart over any and every issue, and it doesn't matter what the circumstances, ONLY BELIEVE!
The Lord BLESS. He does the BEST.

Look, listen and enjoy the much loved Gospel singer of Chicago - Jessy Dixon singing - "Gone". This song is about the resurrection of Christ and his glorious triumph over the grave.
Jessy went home to be with the Lord in 2011 at the age of 73.
Notice the expressions on the faces, and the tears, at the thrill of this Glorious truth of the song.
