Have you told Jesus about it?

Mark 1:30‭-‬31 TPT: Simon’s mother-in-law was bedridden, sick with a high fever, so the first thing they did was to tell Jesus about her. He walked up to her bedside, gently took her hand, and raised her up! Her fever disappeared and she began to serve them.

My dear friend in Christ, the primary reason why you tell someone about a challenge you are facing is because you believe that he or she can either help you directly or atleast direct you to someone who can help. Only fools go around discussing their challenges with everyone irrespective of their ability to help or not. We Intrinsically remember someone who can help whenever a particular challenge comes up.

Jesus in our text today was in the house of one of His followers and his mother-in-law was sick. The Bible records that the first thing they did was to tell Jesus about the sickness. This is a proof that they believe Jesus could help out or do something. And just as they believed, Jesus reached out to her and healed her completely. This has saved them lots of inconveniences and even perhaps medical bills. Notice that He didn’t collect anything from them for such a wonderful work.

In our time, whenever we fall into any challenge, we usually forget about telling it to Jesus. We simply keep trying to solve it our own way until it seems that we have exhausted all our options. Only then will some people remember Jesus while others will even die and not remember to call the Master for help. Know today that if you fail to call on Jesus as your first point when challenges arise, it is a proof that you either don’t believe He can help you or you are not sure He will help you. I encourage you to always call on Him. He is ever ready to help you. Shalom.

Declare to yourself loud: Jesus is my helper.


  1. Spirit of the Living God, may I always remember to bring my challenges before the Master and trust Him to help me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
  2. Please add your personal intentions.
