Mark 5:21-43, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

If the Lord had not been on my side, I would have been consumed. His presence always assures me that everything will be fine even if I don’t see it. I don’t have to understand it, all I have to do is only believe, All things are possible with God. My faith is not so much grounded on “He will”, may faith is grounded on “He can”. It does no matter whether He did not appear when I really needed Him, all that matters is that He is here now and nothing is too difficult for Him. Instead of accusing Him for not coming in time, we should say, “Lord we are glad You are here”.

Mark 5:38, “Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept loudly”. Do not act like you don’t have no problem. Admit that you have a problem but confess that there is a way Read the rest of this entry »

Mark 5:21-43, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

The first 4 verses from vs. 21 concentrated on the man with a sick daughter, the next 10 verses takes a turn to concentrate on this woman with the issue of blood. In reading the story, we can conclude that it wasn’t a quick stop, in vs. 35, “While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” This is not news this father wanted to hear despite knowing how close his daughter was to dying. Who is to blame for the death of the little girl? Some would blame the woman with the issue of blood, she delayed Jesus from reaching the sick girl. Some would blame Jesus, they would argue that He should have set His priorities straight. The bible says in Isaiah 55:8, “for My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, ” says the Lord”. To you He may have delayed, to Him, He is always on time.

In school, sentence punctuation was huge. A sentence can have same wordings, how you punctuate it can change its meaning. I have been misunderstood through emails by the way I punctuated my sentences to an extent that what I meant was not how it was received. With this in mind, God has given us His word, how we punctuate His word will make it sound how we want it to or we choose to stick with what the Author intended for it to be punctuated. Do not put a question mark where God puts a period, and do not put a period where God puts a comma. If there is a period, it is a done deal we can move on to the next thing. If He puts a comma, there is a short pause for there is more to come.
