Episode #93: Have Faith and Arise!
“Then He took the child by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, get up! ” ). Immediately the girl got up and began to walk. (She was 12 years old.) At this they were utterly astounded.” (Mark 5:41-42)
They arrive at the house to find Jairus’ 12 year old daughter has passed away. She had been robbed of her youth and her young life had been taken from her. Jesus tells the crowd in verse 39, “She’s not dead but asleep.” Jesus took her by the hand and told her to get up and she immediately arose. The young life that was thought to be lost was restored!
In this chapter we see 3 miracles of healing and restoration in 3 different life stages. We see a man that was fighting thousands of demons. We see a woman that was cast out, left alone, physically, financially, and spiritually broken. We also see a little girl who was robbed of her youth. All three were restored and made whole by Jesus. The question for us is, which one are you?
Are you fighting demons that keep you isolated and are tearing you apart? Do you feel completely broken, rejected and alone. Or, has someone or something stolen your youth from you and you feel dead and disconnected because of it? Whatever it may be, don’t let this week pass without bringing it to the feet of Jesus. He conquered death and the grave so that we could have forgiveness and freedom in Him. Praise God! IT IS FINISHED! HE IS RISEN and we can be too. Do not be afraid, only believe. Let us be a people who have faith and arise in Jesus!
Love Y’all! be Blessed!
