I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8
You know of times when you’ve been so busy that something that really needed to get done didn’t because you simply ran out of time to do it. We humans understand full well how constrained we are by time. But Jesus, who created time, is not bound by it. He always has time for each one of us.
Even in His earthly ministry, in His limited form as Man, He always had time to minister to people. Consider a typical day in His ministry. When a severely demon possessed man cried out from the tombs, He had time to sail all the way from Galilee to the country of the Gadarenes to save that lonely, tormented man. On the way there, He had time to respond to the cries of His disciples when a dangerous storm arose. He awoke from a much needed sleep only to calm the storm for them.
After He saved the demonized man and returned to Galilee, another man, Jairus, came to Him for help. Jairus’ 12 year old daughter was dying and he begged Jesus to come to his house to heal her. Jesus agreed. Obviously He had time. But on His way there, a woman with a 12 year bleeding condition secretly touched the hem of His garment and received her healing. Though Jairus’ daughter was close to death, Jesus had time to find out who had touched Him, just so that He could minister to that person.
While Jesus was ministering to the woman, He received a death report regarding Jairus’ daughter. Now, in the natural, Jesus was TOO LATE. Yet, He did not consider it a waste of time to encourage Jairus by saying, “Do not be afraid, only believe, and she will be made well” (Luke 8:49-50). He wasn’t troubled or rushed. He took time to go to Jairus’ house and He raised the young girl from the dead.
Friends, this same loving Jesus always has time for you because He loves you so much. He hears your cries, cares about the little and big things that bother you, and will come and save you. Even when it appears He’s too busy, He will always have time to stop and minister to you. Even when it seems TOO LATE, He will still see to it that you get your miracle. Praise God forever. What a wonderful Jesus we serve.
