The Approach For Your Miracle
“Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea. And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet 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.” So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him. 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?” As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.” And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly. When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.”
Mark 5:21-24, 35-42 NKJV
Jairus was a synagogue leader and a man of prominence, respect and status in the community. His life seemed to be perfect but he still had a need.
We can have certain parts of life that are perfect and yet still have places of great brokenness. Yet the Lord is close to the broken ones.
“The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.”
Psalms 34:18 NKJV
We all will sometimes go through things beyond our control and lose hope. Yet God is with us
Steps for approaching your miracle.
1. Never stop falling at the feet (intimacy) of Jesus.
2. Call upon Jesus (Jeremiah 33:3, Acts 2:21)
3. Don’t lose hope in God
Sometimes on the journey to your miracle, it seems to be delayed. On the way to Jairus’ daughter, the woman with the issue of blood did something out of the box to touch the robe of Jesus. Jesus stopped. Jesus was stopped by a touch of brokenness and desperation. The woman was healed. Jairus’ miracle seemed to be delayed. Sometimes God sees our perseverance and holding power in the waiting. In the waiting, Jairus was being taught that if Jesus could heal the woman’s issue of blood, then He could do even greater things for Him.
4. Celebrate the blessings and miracles of others.
5. Increase your faith. When you don’t see it, persevere, worship and pray even more. God will honour your faith (Hebrews 11:6) Never stop believing and putting your hope in Jesus. Don’t listen to the noises of life.
6. Don’t be afraid, only believe. (Mark 9:23, Mark 5:37). Believe in Jesus. His thoughts are always higher than ours. If you haven’t seen the miracles yet, He has something bigger prepared for us. We can ask God why and have everything seem dead. But God makes dead things come alive.
7. Flee away from the negative voices in your life, even your own voice.
