Our Quick Devotion this morning comes from Matthew 9:18-26 NKJV
Summary: Jesus raises ruler’s daughter to life while being ridiculed one moment & praised the next.
18 While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, “My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live.”
19 So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples.
23 When Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing,
24 He said to them, “Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him.
25 But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose.
26 And the report of this went out into all that land.
Questions & Challenge:
1. Would you and I be the one to ridicule him or the ruler who had the faith to ask Jesus for help?
2. What areas do you need to hand over to Jesus and trust him today. If the issue is enough to concern you than it matters to Jesus.
