My sister, arise!

“And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.” Mark 5:41

Jesus gently spoke to Jairus’ daughter, who was dead, “Talitha cumi,” which means “Damsel, I say unto you arise.” It was her time to rise, her time to see God’s glory, her time to see morning, and how did God treat this special moment in her life? He treated it ever so gently. He looked at her with those gentle and loving eyes, took her by the hand, and spoke.

Today, you may be unresponsive to God, numb to His love, cold, and unable to feel anything anymore. You may be dead to life, engulfed in sin, and have experienced the effects of darkness for so long that the morning light of God’s glory shining on you seems foreign. But it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been unresponsive to Him, it doesn’t matter how much you’ve sinned or how low you have allowed yourself to go. God looks at you with the same gentle and loving eyes as He did with Jairus’ daughter. Jesus’ words reached that young girl and caused her to rise from her death. It wasn’t her faith that did it. How could she have faith? She was dead. Sometimes we expect those who are dead to have faith when it’s not their faith that heals them. It is someone else’s heartfelt prayers of faith that save the sick. Someone else is seeking God on your behalf and standing in the gap for you. It is someone else believing God to work a miracle in your life.

Her father believed, and he received his daughter back to life. My sister, your Heavenly Father believes and He will receive you, His daughter, back to life again! The Spirit of God is ministering life to you right where you sit. He says to you, Talitha cumi. He says to you arise. Arise from that place. My sister, the morning has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!

(Read Mark 5:35-43)

  2. I learnt something new from this blogpost, that she arose not from her own faith since she was dead, but from someone elses faith. This was important for me to learn. It means our prayers xan literally mean life or death for others. We can pray for people when they are helpless otherwise. And change their lives.
