TOPIC: No Hopeless Case!

TEXT:  Mark 5:22-24, Mark 5:35-43 (KJV)
22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

“And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.”

Mark 5:41

DCLM Daily Manna Friday 12 July 2024 MESSAGE

A common saying, “When there is life, there is hope”, tells of the possibility of recovery or survival as long as the chances for it still exist. It stems from the belief that death seals all hope and forecloses every possibility of survival. As long as there is life, all human efforts and skills can be put to use to salvage a situation. But once life goes out and death sets in, human knowledge, money, position, etc. can do nothing. Death ends all hope.

Jairus sought the help of Jesus to heal his sick and dying daughter. He believed that while the daughter was still alive, something could still be done to restore her life. However, while Jesus was on the way to minister healing to the sick girl, news came that she was dead. All hope, to them, was now lost. But death is not strong enough to stop the Master. In death, He restores life; in hopelessness, He gives hope. Jesus calmed the fear of the troubled, bereaved father, encouraging him to believe only. Exercising the authority He has over death, Jesus caused the dead daughter to come back to life.

With Jesus, no case is hopeless. All human knowledge, skills and expertise may fail; medical sciences worldwide may not solve your issue. Your dreams, ambitions and proposals may have been declared dead on arrival; signalling no hope or solution from man. But with Jesus, no situation is without hope.

All you must do is “be not afraid; only believe”! If all men have failed and all solutions proved abortive, let Jesus take over the case. Believe absolutely in the Lord today and turn deaf ears to all mourners and wailers who want to make you believe that hope is gone so give up faith. The joy of your life will rise again at the command of Jesus because, with Him, no case is hopeless.

With Jesus, there is hope in every hopeless situation!

Genesis 35-37
