Moms Are World Changers
A lot of times we allow others, and especially ourselves, to be the biggest doubts in our lives. I believe that the devil speaks to us and puts thoughts in our head of “Why Bother.” Instead we need to respond to our “why bothers,” with “Just Believe.”
Jairus could of agreed with the people at his house or maybe what he was feeling at that moment and missed out on the blessing of his daughter’s life because it was easier to handle. Instead he believed.
We often focus on the facts of our situation instead of the truth.
For awhile I believed that fact and truth were the same but they are quite different. The fact in Jairus’ situation was that his daughter was died. The truth is that Jesus can raise her to life. “I believe.”
The fact is that you have no money for groceries this month. The truth is that God can provide. “I believe.”
The fact is that your marriage is falling apart. The truth is that God can restore that relationship. “I believe.”
The fact is your children are far from from God. The truth is that one day they will be serving in His house! “I believe.”
Jesus wouldn’t of told Jairus to “Just Believe,” if he didn’t know the end result.
I encourage you to not let the “Why Bothers” in your life have you miss out on the the “Just Believes.” I know that the journey of the “Just Believe” is not easy, it's discouraging and at times and feels easier to just give up! Don’t be discouraged by your doubts. Don’t stop praying. Don’t stop doing good. “Just Believe.”
Many of us lose out on the miracles in our lives because we get to the place of “Why Bother.” You are probably wondering what I mean by “Why Bother”? Let me give you an example… As a mother I feel I am constantly cleaning up after my 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter. I pick up one section of the living room and I turn around and the other section is a mess. this continues throughout the day! I finally give up and say to myself, “Why Bother.”
In Mark 5:21-34 (NIV) there is a story about a man named Jairus. He comes up to Jesus and says “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” Jesus went with Jairus and while walking to his house a women “butted in line” and received a miracle before Jairus. I don’t know what Jairus response was but I would be pretty ticked! I would be thinking, why is she receiving her miracle right now and my daughter could die at any moment! I know I struggle with this.
Do you ever feel like everyone is being blessed but you! This person has been blessed financially and can payoff their debt or that person applied for less jobs then me and got one already.
Mark 5:35, “While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”
I believe that God speaks to us and directs us to take steps and when we don’t see the results right away it is easier to be in the “Why Bother” stage. What we don’t always realize is that God has already started the miracle in our life... You see, Jesus already started the journey to Jarius’ house.
A lot of times we don’t let the miracles in our lives happen because of the “Why Bother.”
I applied for a 100 jobs and I keep getting rejected, why bother?
I give according to your word and you promised to provide, I can’t make my rent, why bother?
My marriage is falling apart and I just don’t know what to do anymore, why bother?
My children are already far from God, why bother?
Everyone else is partying and getting drunk and I am sick of being the goody-good, why bother?
Mark 5: 36-43 “Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you get up!). Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were, completely astonished. He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give here something to eat.”
