The Jairus Experience

What I call the Jairus experience can be a common occurrence for anyone who is expecting something from God. Such a one can make his request known to God, but then something somehow comes in to interrupt what he hopes for. This real life resistance on the way to the fulfillment of what God has promised can be challenging, but if Jesus is involved nothing can stop it.

In Mark chapter five verse twenty one to forty three we can clearly see what sometimes happens when people have involved God in their life situation. The story in this chapter is a clear depiction of what happens sometimes when The Lord is at work in people’s lives. It may sometimes look like there are people who sneak in from nowhere while God is working on your needs, but that does not mean you are not going to have your miracle. That does not also mean that God is unfair either. Your circumstances can easily be misunderstood because what you have requested him to accomplish in your life will surely come to pass.

Jairus the ruler of the synagogue knew that Jesus was able to heal his sick daughter that is why he asked for help. In Mark 5:22-23 the Bible says, “And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 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” (KJV). Jesus responded to this request, but the process of time and people played a part in its fulfillment. For all of us this experience can be discouraging.

When people have high expectation for something to happen, but then experience a lot of distraction in terms of circumstances and obtrusive people, it can be discouraging. Does this mean God is not involved any more? Not at all, God will always do what he has promised. In Matthew 24:35 Jesus says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (KJV). The Lord’s position will never change because his word does not change. God will always continue dealing with your needs as long as you involve him. The Jairus experience is not meant to stop you, but to help you press on to your miracle.

Are you going to believe God and press on to you miracle? With Jesus in you life, you can rest assured your miracle is on the way. In Mark 5: 24 the Bible say, “And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him” (KJV). Jairus was with Jesus all the way and that is why we also need to be with Jesus all the way to our miracle. The presence of Jesus is vitally important in our pursuit of God.

How do you get into his presence? Well, when your sins are washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ, you will be in his presence. Whatever you do, walk with Jesus all the way to your blessings like Jairus did it. It begins when you become a child of God.

Are you a child of God?
