DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR DESIRE; KEEP ON BELIEVING
Unwavering belief in what God can do, strengthens your faith. Having a steadfast loyalty and nursing an unshakeable faith in God's ability to perform His Word is priceless.
Reference: Mark 5:39-41 New King James Version (NKJV) 'When He came in, He said to them, "Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping." And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, "Talitha, cumi," which is translated, "Little girl, I say to you, arise."'
Jairus was one of the rulers of the synagogue, who came and begged Jesus earnestly, saying, 'My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.' His daughter was so sick that she was about to die.
On the way to Jairus' house, Jesus was interrupted by another person who needed to be healed. Then, while Jesus was delayed, helping that person, Jairus was notified that his daughter had died. People began to blame Jesus because it was already late. Infact Jesus shouldn't even bother to visit Jairus's house anymore. However, Jesus said to Jairus, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
In the world as we know it, you might expect your desired miracle to come through for you at a certain reasonable time. You might even set a deadline for your miracle and believe that God would come through before the time. That's an expression of great faith. However, if God doesn't come through in your 'good time', would you give up on Him? Would you still believe in the efficacy of His Word to deliver your desire? Or are you more concerned about people mocking or being ridiculous about your plight? Understand that 'to mock' is human; its consistent with human nature. Therefore wake up, despise the shame, and be more concerned about what God has for you because He's not through with you yet.
Remember, Jesus was ridiculed when He came in and met people weeping because Jairus' daughter was already dead. He said, 'The child is not dead, but sleeping.' And they laughed heavily, mocking divine intelligence (see Mark 5:39-40). Maybe today, a woman somewhere has been believing God for a child and years have passed to the point that it looks impossible. Of course, from the natural standpoint, a woman's fertility declines as she gets older, which could make it harder to conceive. But here is the word from God, 'Dont give up on your desire; keep on believing!'
Indeed timing is unique for your desire but in God's calendar, His timing for you must never be underrated. He is an all-knowing God who does not function in time and so He's not limited to time. Therefore don't give up on your desire, keep on believing, no matter the circumstance.
In Christ Jesus, we belong in the kingdom which is eternal, even though we are in the world of time bodily. There is enough time for everyone's desire in the kingdom of God, and Jesus' healing power and ability to perform His Word do not have an 'expiry date'. Even death is not capable of stopping our Lord Jesus.
So eventually, Jesus raised the girl from death, saying, "Talitha, cumi," which is translated, "Little girl, I say to you, arise" (see verse 41). It is the same for you. If you refuse to give up on God, you will arise in due time.
