Business for God and God's Business is People"
Mark 5:35-36 (Amplified Bible)
“… then came some from the ruler’s house, who said [to Jairus], Your daughter has died. Why bother and distress the Teacher any further? Overhearing but ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.”
Honestly, what situation in life is too hard for God? Sounds like a question that has a given answer. Well… the question should be obvious, but sometimes those nearest can cause inappropriate thoughts to enter our minds. It’s no doubt they mean well, but as Jesus did with Peter, you have to give Satan a rebuke and keep on believing.
Our prayers and cries of relief from life’s pressures are not a burden to God. Actually, we are commanded to cast all of our burdens on Him (Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7)… releasing the weight of life’s pressure to His mighty hand. Our only responsibility in this matter is to keep believing! Keep focused, relying on, trusting in what God’s Word said about your situation. Fill your heart with every scripture you can find concerning your dilemma.
Some days it’s going to look like there is no hope and its okay to cry, but while you are crying keep reading and filling your heart with what God said. Since your emotions won’t change your situation, they are not a factor. Just remember that God keeps His Word in a manner that is exceedingly and abundantly above every thought one could possibly imagine.
Keep in mind you went to God for relief because you know His track record of significant and success. You know that He is more than able. Blessed is the person that’s able to endure and persevere in the midst of the faith walk with Jesus Christ. Whatever you do… don’t ever give up or loose your faith!
