As the passage continues, Jairus runs into a delay in his desires as the woman with the issue of blood comes to Jesus and He takes the time to meet her needs as well. Brother Tony said Jesus asked, "Who touched me?" The disciples responded, "We don't know." Jarius was saying, "Let's Go!!"
Brother Tony then brought out something that is very plain, but I had failed to see. Notice:
While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
While Jairus was waiting on Jesus to deal with the woman, word came that his daughter had died. It seemed as if it was now too late. Jesus had tarried too long and his hopes for healing had been shattered. No doubt he felt the temptation to tell Jesus to forget about it; there was no need to go any further because his daughter was now dead.
Many times that will be the case with us as well. Just prior to the Lord doing something astonishing in our lives, we will be tempted to give up. We will be tempted to take our eyes off Jesus and focus on the circumstances. If we aren't careful, we will buy into the lie that there is no need to go any further; it's too late now.
How many times do you think we have missed a real blessing because we gave up just before the Lord was ready to answer our prayer and meet our need? How many churches have missed a great move of God because they abandoned their commitment, just about the time the Lord was ready to do a great work among them?
I sure don't want to be guilty of giving up or giving out just before a move of God. I am convinced that God is on the verge of doing something special in our lives at Fellowship. I want to be committed to walking with Jesus, keeping my focus on Him, until He does something astonishing for us. He did that for Jairus and He can do it for us as well.
And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
