// Read: Mark 5:35-43 //

35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”

36 Overhearing[a] what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 But they laughed at him.

After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this,and told them to give her something to eat.


Man has an end; but God Almighty has no end and there is nothing that can make God to give up not even death. People thought that since the child had died, the master should not be troubled further; they did not know that Jesus is the master over situation and circumstances and with Him all things are possible. There is no need to give up. What you need to do is what Jesus told Jairus, “Be not afraid, only believe.” Then the situation will turn around for you


Prayer: Father, turn around my situation by the power in the name of Jesus.
