“And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.” (Mark 5:41-42 KJV)
Everything that man can depend upon has the capacity to fail. In the book of Mark 5:21-24 and also 35-43, a religious ruler by the name Jairus went to Jesus. And you know that religious people are so dogmatic in what they believe. Religion is actually an attempt to reach God, but mortal man cannot reach God, unless God reaches out to him. Neither can religion be depended upon in the hour of need.
This man ran to Jesus because religion failed him. His daughter was sick and at the point of death. He could not heal her. He tried all, but his religion failed him. The only option left to him was to go back to Jesus. When Jesus got to the house of Jairus, his daughter that was already dead before He got there came back to life. Jesus is the answer to everything. It is all about the Master. I don’t know what you have heard. I don’t know what you are dealing with right now. But I say to you fear not. Don’t panic! Put it in the hands of Jesus. My God will sort it out. My God will meet you at the point of your need.
As good as medical doctors are, they still have limitation. Good doctors will tell you they will take care, but only God can heal. So if you are depending on medical sciences and you put God behind, I can assure you, without fear of contradiction, that you will be disappointed. There will come a day when the doctor will come and shake his head and say we did everything we know to do, but it didn’t work. I declare that nothing will cut short your life.
