Max Lucado – Seeing the Unseen

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

We can’t see the future.  It’s one limitation we all share.  In Mark Chapter 5 we read about Jairus, the leader of the synagogue.  The Jairus we see in this story was a desperate father begging for Jesus to heal his daughter.  His meeting with Jesus was interrupted by a message from home– “Your daughter is dead.”  But Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

Faith sometimes begins by ignoring what people say.  We have a choice to live by the facts or see by faith.  Jairus opted for faith and Jesus.  Mark it down!  God knows you and I are blind.  He knows living by faith and not by sight doesn’t come naturally.  And I think that’s one reason he raised Jairus’ daughter from the dead.  Not for her sake—she was better off in heaven.  But for our sake—to teach us that heaven sees when we trust.
