We have all been at this point!
Life seems to be falling around us, and we have prayed, and prayed and it feels like the heavens are brass.
At first we hold on to our faith.
We are like Jairus, we get hit with a hard one; serious hard truths of hardship.
And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet 23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”
He stepped out in faith. He was a man who should never have come to Jesus in the first place, but here he is speaking in faith that if Jesus touches her, she will be healed.
Jesus went with him!! That means everything is going to be perfect from this second! That means no more bad news, no more trial, no more hardship!
Then, the news does not get better, it gets worse…….
While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”
Not just worse, THE WORST IT COULD GET!
Where are you Jesus?
I thought everything was going to be perfect!
I thought you CARED!
Jesus knew the rush of emotions, and the seepage of faith that would immediately come. So he spoke to Jairus.
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “ Do not be afraid; only believe.”
OH, BY THE WAY… SHE DID DIE, BUT JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!
She came back from the dead…
He can resurrect your situation, if you keep the faith like Jairus!
HEAR JESUS TODAY. Do not allow your faith to slip. So many have lost their miracle and the answer to their prayers just as it is getting ready to cross the threshold of heaven to be delivered to earth. The reason it is lost is because we started to get mad at God, rather than keep faith in God.
THE ANSWER MIGHT BE TAKING A BIT OF TIME, BAD NEWS MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN EVEN WORSE, BUT KEEP THE FAITH!
I would rather die a believer, than die a doubter!!
