GOD IS ABLE!(Part 2)
One of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name approached the Lord Jesus and asked him to come and lay his hands upon his child who was at the point of death. He strongly felt that if the Lord Jesus did that his child would be healed and live. The Lord Jesus Christ accepted to go with him to his house. However, while on the way to Jairus’ house somebody came with this message “Thy child is dead:why troublest the Master any further?” Mark 5:35.
Jesus Christ seemed to deliberately ignore this message and instead spoke to Jairus and said,”Be not afraid,only believe” Mark 5:46. This was because the message was directed at Jairus and it was telling him that this was a hopeless situation. The child was dead and nothing could be done anymore other than burying this child!
But the Word of Christ was meant to instill faith and hope in Jairus. The situation could be turned still be around if Jairus dared to believe!
If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth(Mark 9:34). Jesus did not want Jairus to be overwhelmed by unbelief hopelessness.
He went ahead and told the people in the room where the dead child lay, “Why make ye this ado,and weep? The damsel is not dead, but sleepeth” Mark 5:39
And they laughed him to scorn(Mark 5:40). This is because these people really knew that the child was stone dead and according to their belief system,there was no need to bother the Lord Jesus Christ anymore!They did not understand that Christ is the resurrection and the life!(John 11:25)
He later commanded that child”I say unto thee, arise” Mark 5:41
And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment(Mark 5:42).
Could it be that you are facing a dead situation in your life? And the enemy is now telling you not to bother the Master anymore?
I just came to encourage you by telling you our God is able! He is able to do far beyond what you can ask or think!
The same Lord who brought this child back to life is able to bring your situation back to life. Don’t give up. Instead believe God because God is more than able to turn your situation around! Dare to believe!
