While he was saying these things to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, “My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.”
19 And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples. 20 And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, 21 for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.” 22 Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.
23 And when Jesus came to the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, 24 he said, “Go away, for the girl is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. 26 And the report of this went through all that district.
Raising Jairus daughter by Polenov,adjusted
No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, 21 fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. 22 That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” 23 But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, 24 but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, 25 who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.
Jesus was having a day. His 5th recent miracle. And God framed this beautiful day like this:
Except - Jesus' day was difficult. Imagine the Son of God setting forth to save a child's life - and this was a Hard day! Suspicion surrounded Him. Jesus just kept going forth. Jesus could tell who framed His day and what was at hand.
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,a 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,b being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself
If you are arguing Jesus ordered them to go away - this is still humility - God not feeling the need to perform to the crowd. Not taking intricate time to explain. Instead fobbing them off with authority. This is God raising up the child and not demanding Honor for this. The ruler was the man who was running the synagogue - not a likely follower of Jesus - yet, still. a child of God in need; Jairus knew Jesus' healing ministry.
He had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
You are our God, and You do whatever pleases You.
Father God, generations of our families have Loved You. You are God of the Heavens. You rule all the Kingdoms of all Nations. Power and might are in Your Hand Father God. No one stands against You. Every knee will bow to Jesus the Lord.
Job tells us You are Unique, nothing turns you. What the Soul of Your's, Father God wants, He does. No purpose of Your's, Father God Almighty over all things, can be thwarted. In earth, in Heaven, in the seas and the deeps.
What our Father, your Father and mine, the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back.
Even from eternity, You are the Great I Am. Jehovah.
An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, 'What are you doing?' Or the thing you are making say, 'He has no hands'? All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But our God does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off our Father God's hand Or say to the Lord God our Father, 'What have You done?'
Father in all things, You plan for Your Children a Hope and a Future. We are predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of God's will.
Father we pray for those we love, our family, friends, neighbors, Church, workers, our State, this Nation that Your Blessings will gently unfold for us in Your Goodness. In Jesus the Lord. Amen.
