Observation: What was that walk like for Jairus? Heart breaking, agonizing. And yet… Hopeful? Could he have it? Could he trust this man? He healed that woman. She came out of nowhere. Can I believe him?
Application: Did God allow the woman with the issue of blood to increase Jairus faith? To change the situation, so that he could believe Jesus? Do we miss it? He just healed this woman… The he says, “she’s only sleeping.” Jairus had first hand knowledge of Jesus’ abilities. So he keeps walking… So must I….
Prayer: Father, help me to trust in the face of adversity. I have trusted you for so many things. Help me to trust you for so much more. Amen
