Talitha Cumi
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.” And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly. When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”
And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.
Mark 5:36-42

Throughout our walk with God, we will face obstacles and challenges that will attempt to shake our faith. Just recently, I have experienced a great testing of my faith. My father was facing a near death experience and we were in need of a miracle! I can remember crying out to the Lord in desperate need of His presence and His peace. The Lord led me to this passage of scripture in the Gospel of Luke, where we see Jesus perform a Miracle.
There will be times in our walk with God that doubt and fear will try to take away our Faith. Just like this story, we must be women and GANG Girls that activate our faith even in trying situations. We serve a MIRACLE working GOD! There are two things that stand out to me in this passage of scripture:
1. God is able to do what we are unable to do
2. Faith in the timing of God – God moves in His time frame.
The God we serve is Great and is right on time! Let’s keep pressing in for our MIRACLE!
