Lately, we’ve been examining the story of Jairus, and how God’s timing is sometimes much different than our own. As we wrap up our look at Jairus’s miracle—the resurrection of his daughter—there’s one more important principle to make note of. Jairus didn’t only trust God’s timing—he was also willing to keep following Christ even when he didn’t understand how things would work out in the end.
Jesus said of Jairus’s daughter, “She is not dead, but asleep.” The people ridiculed Him. Why? Because we see things through a human lens. They got mad at Jesus—laughed at Him—because what He said and did didn’t make sense from a human perspective.
