Faith to Go, Grace to Stay

Faith to Go, Grace to Stay II

God will upset your priorities to reveal His power in a new and previously unknown way.

In the second of the synoptic gospels projects the humble servant of Jehovah as a messenger of God with power and authority to heal, and deliver from all the power of the enemy, and to transform lives. Mark has to choose the events of the narrative to tell a complete story of the live, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. If all that He did and said were written down, no library in the world could contain the volumes of the whole record. So in effect Mark had to choose the stories and events and develop a narrative that would illustrate Jesus as one who had authority over all things in heaven and in the earth.

It had been a busy day in the life of the Savior. Teaching the Word and preaching the good news of redemption had brought Jesus in contact with people from all walks of life. This message focuses on a day that began in the previous chapter with a man named Jairus that approached the Lord with an urgent request.

Mark 5:35
While He was still speaking, there came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; why trouble the Teacher anymore?”

Sometimes God will interrupt what you think is a priority in order to teach you a deeper revelation and a greater revelation of who He is. He’s not just a healer, He is also the resurrection and the life. It seems that we place importance on things because of the status and rank of the individuals, but God is always maturing and developing our faith and relationship with Him. He will upset your priorities to reveal His power in a new and previously unknown way.

If you have been struggling, and God is doing some things in your life that seem strange to you, and it’s hard to get Jesus to get on board with what you think is your priority, then it might be that God is trying to rearrange some of your priorities! That’s how you recognize the presence of God in your everyday live. He will shift your priorities. For that to happen there has to be a conflict; a collision of wills!
