Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 31 January 2023

An African adage says, when a tree falls on another, you first take care of the one on top. It was Jairus and the sickness, and the eventual death of his daughter that initiated this trip of Jesus.

However, the woman with the issue of blood interrupted his journey to Jairus’ house. As Jesus must solve the woman’s problem first, the news came that Jesus might have been too late getting to Jairus’ house. Notice, however, Jesus’ response in v.36. Having just witnessed the healing of the woman, Jairus may have felt encouraged to believe Jesus for His intervention in the hopeless situation.

Notice how Jesus handled the situation before ministering to the girl (v.40b). Why do you think He did this? Have you handled such a situation where you needed only a few believing Christians instead of a doubting crowd? See Judges 7:4-8; 1 Samuel 14:6. Jesus still performs miracles among men, but we must come to him in faith. No situation is beyond him.

Practice/Word Application
So what? Are there people, however close and important, that are hindering your faith journey? Determine to separate yourself from such people right away.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Dear heavenly Father, help me overcome all obstacles to my spiritual growth.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Psalms 51:1

One Year Bible Reading Plan
