PESSIMIST & OPTIMIST
PESSIMIST: You are having this problem for the last twelve
years. You met so many doctors, spent so much money but
no deliverance; you have no hope; learn to live with this problem!
( MARK 5 : 25, 26 )
OPTIMIST : But I heard about JESUS; Even in my own place, I
heard about the deliverance a man, possessed by legion, got.
I trust HIM!
PESSIMIST : Even if you trust HIM, you won’t have the opportunity
to meet HIM!
OPTIMIST : Yes, but the LORD is close to all who call on HIM, to
all who call on HIM sincerely.( PSALM 145 : 18 )
HE will create an opportunity for my sake!
PESSIMIST : Even if HE is close to you, HIS focus is not you, but
the daughter of Jairus ( MARK 5 : 22 ) . HE won’t stop for you!
OPTIMIST : HE need not stop for me; HE need not touch me; I
will use the opportunity and some how I will touch HIM!
PESSIMIST : You see, how many are behind HIM; It is a big crowd;
But you are so weak because of your problem; How are you going
to touch HIM? It is not possible.
OPTIMIST : Yes, but because of the crowd, HE can’t move fast; SO I
will get more time to go close to HIM; With all my mind, with all my
strength, with all my heart I will persevere. At least HIS dress I will touch!
PESSIMIST : Dress? Do you have any scriptural reference to believe
that by touching a dress you can get healed?
OPTIMIST : I am not trusting the method but the PERSON and HIS
presence; HE can. that much I know and that is enough!
PESSIMIST : Suppose some one in the crowd knows about your
problem, what they will think ? you know, when you are having this
kind of problem, you should not come near other people?
OPTIMIST : when I started my faith walk towards HIM, the first thing
I learned is not to worry about ‘ what others will think?’.
Let them worry about their problems and their master!
Further, I am not following the crowd but JESUS.
PESSIMIST : You see how many are touching HIM and HIS dress;
nothing is happening; why waste time? Go back!
OPTIMIST : Can you please move and give me space to touch
HIS dress? I believe ‘ If I can touch HIS clothing, I will be healed’.
This is my faith; I don’t know about others!
She touched the fringe of HIS robe, and the healing power had
gone out from HIM and she got healed!
YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL. GO IN PEACE.
YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED, ( MARK 5 : 34 ).
