“And behold there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue; Jairus by name, and when he saw him (Jesus), he fell at his feet”. Matthew 5:22
Never mind opposition on your road to destiny. There will always be opposition to our miracle but we must not give in to them. When you mind opposition, you will lose your position. Our opening scriptures tell the story of Jairus. He needed his daughter to be healed by the master Jesus but he faced countless opposition, yet was determined to help his daughter. That persistence got him the miracle he sought. Understand that opposition will always come before your miracle. But before you can overcome any opposition or hindrance, you must recognize it and identify it. Remember always that opposition is sent by the enemy to defeat and destroy you. You should therefore never lose your ground to it. As soon as you do, your faith begins to disappear and finally gives way to fear. Remember that where there is no faith, there is no miracle.
Inspite of his hurdles, Jairus believed that Jesus was the answer and could heal his daughter and so he kept his faith up. Faith does not deny fact but rather changes it, and that’s what Jairus did each time he overcame a hurdle and moved closer to his miracle. Jairus was running out of time to save his daughter but he had to overcome the opposition of the crowd. Interested by-standers, neighbours and even friends became a human traffic that stalled and slowed Jesus as he tried to make it on time to save his daughter. They had to press through the crowd, just like you have to keep pressing through to your miracle. Then the woman with the issue of blood came by and distracted Jesus. Don’t be dismayed when everyone is sharing testimonies but you, yours is the next in line. By the time Jesus was done with giving the woman with the issue of blood her testimony, they told Jarius to leave Jesus alone, that her daughter had died. That didn’t deter Jesus. He still went on and raised the girl from the dead. God is never late. Hallelujah!
Beloved God won’t be late for you. Only keep going, keep pressing, and ignore the oppositions.
SAY THIS PRAYER
Help me Lord to be tenacious and unrelenting as I wait on you. In Jesus name. Amen
May you never lose your position to opposition, may you not have given up when the Lord has turned to bless you. In Jesus name. Amen
<Healed by the blood>
I was ill for some time and drugs were not helping. I was in a dream where I saw my aunt and asked her for drugs, but instead she gave me the communion blood. I woke up and took the communion blood. That was the end of the affliction; I am totally healed now. Praise God!
