And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: for he had only one daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
Luke 8: 41-42
Commentary: The move of God in your life will test both your faith and your patience. Many of us don't have any problem praying about something, but we have a major problem waiting for God to move on our behalf. Jairus's faith is tested even after Jesus is on His way to heal his daughter. There is a delay while someone else is healed. What is happening? Through seeing someone else's miracle, Jairus can strengthen his faith in what God is able to do while he waits for his own miracle. We can do the same.
