“Jesus’ opinion of God’s Word is the number one reason to trust it.” --- Kristen Wetherell, unlockingthebible.org
Never Too Late: On the way to heal Jairus’s desperately ill daughter, Jesus did the unthinkable: He paused (Mark 5:30). He stopped to identify who touched Him, and then spoke gently with the woman. You can imagine what Jairus was thinking: There’s no time for this, my daughter is dying! And then, his worst fears came true --- Jesus appeared to have delayed too long and his daughter passed away (v. 35). But Jesus turned to Jairus and offered a word of encouragement: “Don’t be afraid; just believe” (v. 36). Then, calmly ignoring the mockery of onlookers, Christ spoke to Jairus’s daughter and she came back to life! He revealed that He can never be too late. Time can’t limit what He’s able to do and when He chooses to do it. How often do we feel like Jairus, thinking that God was simply too late to accomplish what we had hoped for. But with God, there’s no such thing. He’s never too late in fulfilling His good and merciful work in our lives.-- Peter Chin, Our Daily Bread
