Food, God is Good, Healing, Jesus, Jesus Sayings, Joy, Mark 5, Resurrection
The events of the day had been stunning. A 12 year old had just been raised from the dead. At Jesus command, she got up from the dead and walked around. Everyone was beside themselves. She was 12. She had died. Now she was alive. God is great. Nothing is impossible with Him.
What is Jesus first concern after He has raised her from the dead? She is hungry. Get her some food.
Jesus knows what is important and when it is important. He never ignores what we need and when we need it.
That is just the way God is. God is good and in a good mood. He knows when we are hungry and will give us something to eat.
But when he had sent them all out, he took the child’s father and mother, along with his companions, and entered the child’s room. He clasped the girl’s hand and said, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, get up.” At that, she was up and walking around! This girl was twelve years of age. They, of course, were all beside themselves with joy. He gave them strict orders that no one was to know what had taken place in that room. Then he said, “Give her something to eat.” (Mark 5:40-43 The Message)
