Woke up feeling like Jairus this morning… In desperate need of the Lord’s help but instead of my daughter dying, it felt like my hopes and dreams. I felt the need to tell the Lord a “play-by-play” of what I needed Him to do in my life – that would make me happy.
Then I thought, He already knows. The hopes and dreams came from Him, so He very well knows what it is that I desire.
Then the enemy said to me, “Your hopes and dreams are dead, do not trouble the Master any longer.” And, then the Lord said to me – “Only believe! Believe in God!”
Lord, it does not matter to me whether or not you stop on the way to help me, to get glory from another; as in the case with the woman with the issue of blood, while on the way to Jairus’s house. You have enough healing for us all. Just because others say that my situation is dead, you can give it life; even if you show up LATE! (As if there were such a thing as the Lord not being on time.)
You do not work in time. You work in eternity, and call those things that be not as though they were. Just as long as you show up. You will get the Glory from my life as well. Jairus, as well as myself could have grown angry and bitter because it seems that our time to be blessed has passed us by, but I believe God and I trust in your impeccable timing. Jairus returned to His home, knowing good and well that his daughter lay dead as I return to this j.o.b. – which seemingly is a dead-end job, but I trust as Jairus believed his daughter could be raised, that I too shall be raised up to do full-time what my purpose is and to fulfill my destiny.
Don’t stop believing, no matter what the situation may appear to look like – with God all things, even the impossible are possible.
Life oftentimes is difficult to open, but God will direct us when and where to tear and rip into it; and the blessings of life spill-out and over everyone in attendance.
God’s blessings come by directives and not just a suggestion. The manufacturer Himself pre-destined or pre-designed the perforations of life to make it easier to access what He has for us.
