How to Deal With Mockers in Your Life

There is one story I love in the book of Luke. It’s the story about how Jesus raised Jairus’ twelve year old daughter from the dead. I love this story because it shows me so many sides of Jesus, especially how He dealt with His mockers.

 

The enemy deliberately places mockers around us. These people specialize in laughing at us to scorn and making us think God’s word is a lie or that God’s word will not yield results in our lives. These people make it seem like God has gone on a vacation and slept off on us even when it is clearly written, in the word of God, that He neither sleeps nor slumbers.

 

They mock your singlehood. You know all those people that sarcastically remind you about the ticking biological clock or the year that is fast coming to an end when February is not even over yet? They are the ones I am talking about.

 

Thank God for the opportunity to see how Jesus dealt with mockery. It is even more exciting to know that Jesus understands what it means to be mocked because He has been on that road before.

 

Now, to the main question: how did Jesus do it? Let’s see how in the book of Luke.

First, in the eight chapter of Luke, death was calling on Jairus’s daughter as he ran to inform Jesus about his daughter’s critical condition (Luke 8: 40-42). However, on getting to his home, someone told him not to bother Jesus because his daughter was already dead. I mean, it was clear to all that the girl was dead and gone.

 

Jesus overheard conversation between Jarius and the news bearer. So he told Jarius, “Have faith, because your daughter will be healed.” Jesus was so sure of the girl’s healing that he told the crowd at Jarius’ house to stop their wailings. He said to them, “She is not dead, she is only asleep.”

 

Of course, it sounded ridiculous to them because the word of God always sounds foolish to men who are not spiritual. So you can guess what they did. They laughed at Him. Some versions say that the CROWD laughed him to scorn. They mocked him because all they could see was a dead girl.

 

But Jesus handled it like a pro. Here is what He did. He ignored them by ordering them out of the house, took the dead girl by the hand, and spoke the word to her, “Maid, arise.” The dead girl came back to life like she was just woke up from a deep sleep.

 

Learn from Jesus today. When people mock your singleness, ignore them, (that is how to order them out of your life/house), and focus on the word of God that says, “Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them” (Isaiah 34:16).

 

Hold on to the word of God like Jesus did, keep confessing, and see how your mate will run speedily towards you this year according to the word of the Lord.

Stop paying your mockers any attention, and focus on God’s word over your marriage. May the Lord grant more understanding in Jesus’ name. Amen!
