Mark 5:22-24a, 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.” 24 So Jesus went with him…
Here is a man named Jairus who was a ruler of the synagogue. His baby girl was dying and out of complete desperation came to Jesus. He didn’t JUST come to Jesus, but he came with overwhelming emotions and passion infused with FAITH. In verse 23 he made his declaration of FAITH, “Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”
WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE CAME TO JESUS WITH THIS PASSIONATE FAITH?
Jesus went with him! That means that this man’s faith rerouted Jesus from where He was heading in the first place. OUR FAITH LITERALLY MOVES JESUS TO LOOK AND MOVE IN OUR DIRECTION!
Then something happened on the way to his home. A woman who was bleeding for 12 years takes the attention of Jesus with her faith and she was miraculously healed. Jesus declared that her FAITH made her whole.
Before the final words of Jesus to this woman were complete, a man from Jairus’ home came and said that his baby girl died and not to bother Jesus.
FROM BAD TO WORSE, IN FACT, NOT EVEN WORSE, THE ABSOLUTE WORSE REPORT THAT HE COULD HAVE RECEIVED.
Jairus was at a CROSSROADS!
Mark 5:36, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”
Jesus told Jairus to not allow FEAR to steal his miracle for his baby – ONLY BELIEVE! Believe what? VERSE 23 – SHE WILL LIVE!
If Jairus has walked away because of the circumstances – his girl would have remained dead, but he chose to not change his confession, and to remain in FAITH, then the miracle came to his house and his baby girl rose to hunger!! GO JESUS! GO JAIRUS!
TWO THIEVES OF YOUR MIRACLE:
1) Time – we want it in our timing, and so many allow fear and unbelief to steal their miracle when they don’t get it in their timing.
2) Circumstances – from bad to worse – NEVER GIVE UP ON FAITH! I WOULD RATHER DIE A BELIEVER THAN DIE A DOUBTER ANY DAY!
