“My little daughter is dying.
Please come and put your hands on her
so that she will be healed and live.”
So Jesus went with him.
Jairus, a synagogue leader, had an emergency. His daughter was very ill, and even though the synagogue leaders had spoken out against Jesus, Jairus was desperate. He pleaded for help and Jesus agreed. Upon arriving at Jarius’ home Jesus calms the panicky crowd and heals the little girl. Jairus’ story can be read in Mark 5:21-24, 35-43.
How wonderful it is when Jesus goes with me. When he does I can expect to see what Jairus saw. Verse 26 reminds me that I do not have to be afraid, dispite circumstances that look desperate. Verse 29 reminds me that Christ has power over chaos and can bring calm through all the commotion. Finally, verse 42 tells me that I can be prepared to be astonished.
Lord, thank you that you do go with us. I praise your presence in my life. Lord I trust that you can bring peace instead of worry and calm out of chaos, You amaze me. Amen.
