October 30 – It’s Your Decision

Dear Marisa,

“And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw [Jesus],he fell at his feet, And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. And Jesus went with him.”
(Mark 5:22-24)

I wonder when God is going to do something about this problem! Have you ever asked that question? If so, you may be surprised to find out that the answer depends 100 percent on you.

There’s an incident in Mark 5 that will show you what I mean. Jesus had just gotten out of a boat and people were pressing all around Him, “thronging Him,” it says. They had Him shoved up against the shoreline when suddenly there came a man moving through that crowd to get to Jesus.

Throwing himself at Jesus’ feet, Mark records, he prays and beseeches Him greatly, saying, “My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her… and she shall live.”

Think about this situation for a moment. Here’s a man that’s politically on the level of the mayor of the city. But he’s so doggedly determined to get to Jesus that he fights his way through the crowd and clears out enough room to fall at Jesus’ feet. He’s made a decision–and when he gets to Jesus, he says exactly what it is: Lay your hands on her and she shall live.

Let me ask you something: Who do you think is directing the ministry of Jesus here? This one man! A man who’s made a decision. When he speaks that decision out, Jesus doesn’t say anything. He just stops what He’s doing, turns around and follows him.

In a crowd of literally thousands, the faith decision of one man is directing the actions of Jesus.

What does that mean to you? It means that if you’re sitting around waiting for Jesus to decide to heal you… for Jesus to decide to help you…for Jesus to decide to prosper you and give you victory…you’re in for a long wait. Because that’s not Jesus’ decision.

It’s yours.
