While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from Jairus’ house to tell him that his only daughter had died and that he shouldn’t bother Jesus anymore. These people were talking to Jairus, but anyway, Jesus overheard them announce the bad news. To their surprise, Jesus turned to Jairus and said, “Don’t be afraid, just believe”. After that Jesus only took Peter, James and John to where the body of the girl was. The word says that people were crying loudly and Jesus asked them why they were crying because the child was not dead but asleep. No one believed him because they had seen for themselves that the child was dead. Taking the child’s parents and the three disciples, Jesus went into the house, took the child by the hand and said, “Talitha koum”. Immediately the child woke up and Jesus asked them to give her food. Some of the things on which you are about to give up are not dead, but just asleep. May I speak to someone who is just about to throw the towel in their life. It is never over about your life until God says so. Everyone else who was on that occasion thought that Jairus had lost his daughter already, but Jesus changed the whole story. It doesn’t matter who announced some bad news about you. Even when the devil thinks he is done with you, it’s not over until God says. When you feel like you are sinking, just hold on, God holds your destiny. There is a reason why Jesus left the crowd when He went into Jairus’ house. Sometimes you need to leave the crowd if you want success and progress in your life. Separate yourself from the crowd of people that always discourage you, people that look down on you. There are times when you need people that will challenge you more than comfort you. While everyone else was crying with Jairus and comforting him, Jesus told him to not to worry but to believe. One word from God can change your destiny, your situation and your whole life. Speak the word to every dead and sleeping aspect of your life. Speak life to your career. It is high time you check the people you hand around with. Aren’t they delaying you? Aren’t they crowding you for nothing? Before considering giving up, what if that business is just asleep, why not speak the word of God. What if your marriage is just asleep and not dead. Worrying won’t solve the problem, and giving up will not make it better anyway. Just believe in God.
