From the Father's Heart: Stop Crying!
Everyone was mourning in the house of Jairus, his only daughter was dead. Jesus came there and said, "Stop crying, for she is not dead but asleep". The people started laughing at Him, because they knew she was dead. Jesus took her by the hand and called out, "Child, get up!" Her spirit returned, and she got up at once. Then He gave orders that she be given something to eat. (Luke 8:51-56)
The people there knew that she was dead. Beloved, it is not what you know or what you are going through. It is what Jesus is saying to you right now. His Word to you NOW is important and what matters.
As Jairus’ daughter was dead in the house, in the same way since the past few years, certain things have died in your inside life/house too. The Lord who rose up that little child is going to do the same thing for you now. He is going to rise up your Faith, Prayer life, Holiness, Courage, Gifts, Wisdom, Understanding, Authority, Anointing, Health, Strength, etc - all that you once had in your life. The Risen Lord is saying to it, “ARISE” and everything will arise! Your youth will be renewed like the eagle's. You will be used by God with His love and power to fulfil His will. The glory of the later house will be greater than the former house and God will give you peace (Hag 2:9).
Finally, Jesus gave orders that she be given something to eat. Start feeding this new life that is raised inside you with fresh Word from the Scriptures every day, deep worship and by pouring your love into all the people around you, including your trouble makers.
........ "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed ..........." (Rev 5:5).
Jesus is winning inside you!
Be filled with His Spirit always!!
Your sorrows shall be turned into joy!!!
