Here we will talk about a wonderful story, that to us as parents moves us to understand the importance of believing that there is nothing impossible for God.
And it is good that our faith be always placed in the hands of God, so that each day we believe that there is nothing impossible for Him, but sometimes we find a number of people who are lacking in faith, and they do not believe in what God can do in our lives. We will start with the following Biblical verses:
21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.
22 Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet.
Here the Bible tells us that Jesus was passing from the other shore in a boat, and says that there was a large crowd around him, and we know that these people were gathering to hear the good news that Jesus was bringing to them, and then a man named Jairo who was Chief of the synagogue, of Capernaum arrived.
This man was one of those who met with the scribes and pharisees who always persecuted and confronted Jesus in everything He said.
But one day the daughter of Jairus became ill, and the Bible says that this girl every day worsened more and more. Jairo was always worried wondering if his daughter was going to die.
But Jairo, quickly ran to where Jesus was and begged Him saying:
23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.”
24 So Jesus went with him.
A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
The Bible tells us that Jairus ran desperate to where Jesus was, and begged Him a lot asking Him to put his hands on her to save her. Jairo had his faith up. We also see that he had to pass a large crowd that was surrounding Jesus.
Continuing with verse 24 of chapter 5 of this book, we can see that Jesus saw him desperate praying for his daughter who was dying. Jesus was, then, with him; and a great multitude followed him, and they pressed him.
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 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.
Mark 5: 35-43
While Jesus was speaking, people came from the house of Jairus and told Jairus: Your daughter is dead; Why do you bother the Master even more? But Jesus heard this and said: Jairus only believes. And so it happened, this man believed, but the Bible says that Jesus did not allow anyone to follow Him but some of his disciples. Jesus, seeing all these people bemoaning the death of Jairus’ daughter, told them: Why are you crying? The girl is not dead, she only sleeps, but Jesus, seeing the people making fun of what He said, took the mother and father of the girl, and they entered where the girl was.
And Jesus seeing the girl took her hand and said: Talitha cumi; which is translated is: Girl, I say to you, arise. And the girl, when she heard this wonderful voice of Jesus, got up and walked. The Bible says that the girl was twelve years old, and then they were very happy for this miracle that happened with the daughter of Jairus, because He ordered them to feed the girl and not to say anything of what happened.
And we conclude telling you that we must reflect, at all times and we must to have faith and confidence that Jesus can heal our wounds, and that we must place our trust in Him, as well as this man named Jairus, who believed that Jesus would save his daughter.
