And they ridiculed him. But when He had put them all outside,

       He took the father and mother of the child, and those who were with Him,

        and entered where the child was lying.

   (Mark 5:40)


Maybe you’re standing behind a locked door today, waiting for the answer to come from the other side. You could be waiting for the doctor to bring you good news, a verdict to be passed down by a jury, or a child to return from death. The story of this dead girl is a reminder that faith is the key that unlocks the door to belief. If you’re waiting today for something good to come from the other side, be patient and wait for the answer.
