The little girl was dead! Her body was getting cold. Memories of her growing up, flashed across the mind of her mother, as she hung on dearly to the corpse of the one, she once called ‘Talitha’. She lost her to sickness, death was rejoicing and the powers of darkness seemed triumphant, the mist of hope was replaced with the clarity of hopelessness.
The father’s heart sank, as he received news about the death of the little one he once called ‘Talitha’. The little hands that clenched his fingers and learned to walk were lying motionless. Despair was his anthem.
But Jesus was undaunted by the reality of the news that had been whispered into the ears of the father and he spoke to him and said, “Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” (Mark 5:36).
Jesus walked into death that day, and “41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around At this they were completely astonished.
Jesus, the word incarnate, spoke a life-giving word over this little girl and brought holistic healing to her family.
