Summary: Problems are common to all, but how do we overcome our problems successfully.
I want to share a story with you this morning, it is a story about a man who had fascinating life and suddenly everything came crumbling down.
He was very qualified man, honest and faithful that led him above all his peers. He became the director of his organization, a people training centre. He had so many people work under him and even he had the power and authority to send out anyone who seems unfit for the organization.
He was a happy man, got married and God had blessed him with a lovely daughter.
His daughter was the best among the girls in the neighborhood like her father first in all things. She was good in singing and helped her father in his office in many programs and made it as the best singer.
She was school topper, a great athlete, involved in all extracurricular activities. Neighbors always suggested that she was a blessed child.
She was very obedient, at the call of the mother or the father she would act. She was loving. Never would argue. Amazing girl.
She was very helpful; she used to help everyone in all possible occasions. Everybody in the town knew her for her virtues.
But something unfortunate struck her, she became sick, the parents took her to the doctor to treat her. The doctor said it was simple flu and the tablets could work. Fever never subsided. She worsened.
Father prayed for her took her to different prayer meetings and thought that she would be healed. But nothing worked, her condition became quite bad.
Someone told the father why not go to a man who is come to town, he prays and people are healed and the dead are raised back to life.
He is on the way going to some town why don’t you request him to come home, he can do something. The father ran found the man, told him his daughter’s condition, he promised he will come home and but there was a confusion in the crowd because the man was upset that somebody touched him.
The dying daughter’s father was puzzled over this fuzzy man, since he was worried about the trivial that someone touched his garment. The fellows who seemed to rally around this man were telling him that how on earth can he identify someone who touched his garment; when such a big crowd is thronging around? The fellows thought he was a bit foolish. For which the man said that he felt the power left him and it healed somebody who touched the garment.
By the time this drama was on, the servants from the director’s house told him, “Don’t disturb the man since your daughter died.”
Oh the father became miserable, he could not wait, was managing to go home. Then the man called him and said “Don’t be afraid, only believe.”
The man went home and healed the girl.
Let us read the text from Mark 5:21-43
21When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake. 22Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet 23and pleaded earnestly with him, "My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live." 24So Jesus went with him.
