A Dad Named Jairus – Day 1

A Dad Named Jairus - An Awesome Marriage Plan

It’s the start of a new week and we finished the last day of our previous devotional yesterday. So I did another search for dads in the YouVersion Bible app to see what devotionals I could find. This one jumped out at me for a few reasons including how an encounter with Jesus, no matter how brief, can transform a situation.

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘ Then one of the rulers of the synagogue came up, Jairus by name; and seeing Him, he prostrated himself at His feet And begged Him earnestly, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed and live. And Jesus went with him; and a great crowd kept following Him and pressed Him from all sides [so as almost to suffocate Him].’

Mark 5:22-24

Are you like me and start your day with God and in God’s Word? Are you turning to God’s Word to hear what He has to say to fill you up and point you in the right direction? Are you turning to God’s Word to understand or discern what to do? Are you turning to God’s Word to learn?

Let’s be the dads who know the first place to turn no matter what comes our way is to Jesus! Let’s be the dads who when we need wisdom, discern, health, or courage turn to Jesus! Let’s be the dads who bring our marital, parental, and daily needs to God because we have a relationship with Him and we know from His Word that we can cast our cares on Him because He cares for us! Let’s be the dads who trust God more than our own understanding! Let’s be the dads who know that nothing is impossible with Jesus and for Jesus! Let’s be the dads who choose to live by faith rather than by sight!
