Just Believe!

Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” Luke 8 : 50

Below is a very short passage from Luke 8, but it has a whole lot of truth.

A man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.   As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Then the woman she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”  While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”

Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet for his 12 years old daughter. Jesus filled with compassion started walking toward his house. But a lady who suffered by bleeding for 12 long years touched the edge of His cloak and a great miracle happened. But Jesus stopped and started enquiring who touched Him. Even the disciples told Jesus that there was a very big crowd pressing Him. Then the lady came forward and admitted that she was the one who touched and was healed.

Think of Jairus’ situation. If I were Jairus I would have begged Jesus, “It’s okay, she is healed anyway. Don’t waste the time. My daughter is already dying.” I would have not been impressed much by this brand new miracle. But Bible nowhere says that Jairus was impatient even when someone said that his daughter was dead. Jesus comforts Jairus saying, “Don’t be afraid; just believe. She will be healed.”

The 12 years girl already died. Everyone was wailing and was mourning for her. Later Jesus touched her and she was brought back to life. Another miracle happened!

 - When the whole crowd pressed toward Jesus, the one lady who touched his cloak with faith was healed instantly. One simple truth is, Jesus loves you as if are the only person in the world. He takes care of you and your needs though you feel like you’re unimportant.

 - Everyone knew that Jairus’ daughter was dead already. But Jesus told that she would be healed. This clearly tells that none of our situations are dead. They all can be healed if you and I fall at His feet. And your situations will be the medicine for someone else’ pain.

 - 12 years long suffering has gone somewhere because Jesus was on the way to Jairus’ house. Don’t feel like you’re waiting for some miracle to happen for years. The miracle is on your way!

 - I am impressed with the number 12. 12 years long suffering lady and 12 years old girl! Jairus’ prayer for his daughter brought healing not only to his daughter, but also to another woman who was suffering because of bleeding as much years as his daughter was. Today you may be suffering, but please invite Jesus! Not only your need will be met, the people around you will be touched by Him.

 - Finally, Jesus is never late! His timing is perfect! The delay caused because of a lady was not a delay at all. It’s the beginning of bringing streams in the desert, roadways in the wilderness. It’s the beginning of impossibilities turning possible before your very own eyes. 

All things are possible with God! Amen!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
