Faith Beyond the Hopelessness

Inspired by Jairus and his dying daughter (Mark 5:22-43) and Lazarus(John 11:1-48)

Faith beyond the dying, beyond the hopelessness of the situation, faith beyond the decay of the grave and circumstances that refuse to change
Faith in a Resurrection and Life that is not of our own accord, not limited, not rushed, all powerful, in every minute, even when we think it is to late
Things, people, circumstances that we have buried, issuing a death certificate for the things we could not change, forgetting that He was given all power in heaven and on earth, that all things are under His feet.
Loosing sight of His position that is far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
A father's inheritance of Power given to His Son, Life flowing from the Father to His Son with promise of "He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."
A promise for this present time "The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live."
As we beat the dust and grieve what we have given up on, accepting that our best efforts and attempts can not turn it around,
living in limited faith believing only to the point of death doubting the limitless Lord is not His desire
gather them that believe, them that press their faith beyond sight, beyond graves and death and wait for Him who IS the Resurrection and Life
together stare death in the faith and let His life giving words permeate the tomb and chaos
come to know His power over death and the grave when he speaks
"Talitha cumi; I say unto thee, arise.

Jesus said "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
