Something very interesting happened between Jesus and Jairus in the Bible reading for today. When someone came from Jairus’ house to tell him that his daughter was dead, Jesus did not allow Jairus to respond;

He told him specifically, “Don’t be afraid, only believe”. We see that everything He did before He woke the girl up from death was to remove faith killers. He knew that if Jairus had allowed fear to creep in when he was told that his daughter was dead, the miracle would not happen.

He saw that all the people in the house that were crying were faithless and if Jairus and his wife looked at them, they would kill their faith. Jesus thus sent them all out before He could perform the miracle.

It could be that the reason you have not gotten that miracle from God yet is that you have so many faith killers around you. Believe me honestly, if you keep hanging around these faith killers, they will hinder you from reaching your goals. You therefore have to remove them from your life.

Go away from places and people whose conversations kill your faith. If you keep listening to them, they will eventually hinder you from achieving your goal. If all that the people around you keep talking about is how things are bad and cannot be better, you had better change location.

Move to a place where you will hear people telling you that things will be better, where they will tell you that your goals are achievable, where you will stop hearing, “No, it is not possible”, but start hearing “Yes, it is possible”.

I for one have always had big dreams, dreams that seem impossible when people hear them. Whenever someone laughs at my dreams, I tell them, “You just watch and see”, then I take a step back from the fellow so that they don’t kill my faith.

Eventually when the dreams begin to come to pass, it will now be my turn to laugh. I have always said it: if people don’t laugh at your dreams, then they are not big enough. It is when your dream is so big that it is not possible to achieve it without the help of God that you have just started dreaming.

Don’t mind those who have tried to kill your dreams in the past. Ignore them, put your faith in God and watch Him make your dreams come to pass.

Stay away from people whose words and actions can kill your faith.
