A Dad Named Jairus – Day 3

What are you facing today? What is in front of you? Where will you turn? What will you do? Let’s be the dads who turn to Jesus! Let’s be the dads who no matter what obstacles or delays get in our way keep trusting the miracle-working Jesus! Let’s be the dads who won’t and don’t lose hope because of obstacles and delays because we know that Jesus came so that we could have life and life more abundantly! Let’s be the dads who won’t and don’t lose hope because of obstacles and delays because we know that God is love and God is good all the time! Let’s be the dads who trust God rather than trying to lean on our own understanding! No matter the obstacle, the delay, or the challenge, today let’s invite Jesus into our day early and then walk it out with Him!

Let’s jump in and see where Jairus is and what our devotional for today can share with us.


Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘ 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. And He permitted no one to accompany Him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. When they arrived at the house of the ruler of the synagogue, He looked [carefully and with understanding] at [the] tumult and the people weeping and wailing loudly. And when He had gone in, He said to them, Why do you make an uproar and weep? The little girl is not dead but is sleeping. And they laughed and jeered at Him. But He put them all out, and, taking the child’s father and mother and those who were with Him, He went in where the little girl was lying. Gripping her [firmly] by the hand, He said to her, Talitha cumi–which translated is, Little girl, I say to you, arise [from the sleep of death]! And instantly the girl got up and started walking around–for she was twelve years old. And they were utterly astonished and overcome with amazement.’

Mark 5:36-42

‘ While He was still speaking, a man from the house of the director of the synagogue came and said [to Jairus], Your daughter is dead; do not weary and trouble the Teacher any further. But Jesus, on hearing this, answered him, Do not be seized with alarm or struck with fear; simply believe [in Me as able to do this], and she shall be made well. And when He came to the house, He permitted no one to enter with Him except Peter and John and James, and the girl’s father and mother. And all were weeping for and bewailing her; but He said, Do not weep, for she is not dead but sleeping. And they laughed Him to scorn, knowing full well that she was dead. And grasping her hand, He called, saying, Child, arise [from the sleep of death]! And her spirit returned [from death], and she arose immediately; and He directed that she should be given something to eat. And her parents were amazed, but He charged them to tell no one what had occurred.’

Luke 8:49-56

God’s Word is so amazing. God’s Word is a light in the darkness to brighten the path and allow us to see how to move forward. God’s Word is powerful, stronger than a double-edged sword. God’s Word is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives! God’s Word corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right! God’s Word prepares and equips us to do every good work!

Let’s be the dads who trust God more than the words of people! Let’s be the dads who because we are walking with Jesus are not seized with alarm nor struck with fear; we only keep on believing! Let’s be the dads who limit our exposure by limiting the people we allow in to be those who will be helpful, encouraging, and useful! Let’s be the dads who remove the people who are teasing, laughing, and mocking us so that they won’t get in the way of our faith! Whatever it is we are facing, let’s give it into Jesus’ hands! Let’s be the dads who trust Him with the situation, the person, or anything else that we are facing! Let’s be the dads who praise God when we are faced with His miracles and movement in our lives!

Let’s be the dads who lean on God rather than allow fear to take a grip on our lives! Let’s be the dads who believe that all things are possible with and for Jesus! Let’s be the dads who receive God’s commands and do them!
