Matthew 8:13 Meditation

“Then Jesus turned to the Roman officer and said, “Go home. All that you have believed for will be done for you!” And his son was healed at that very moment.”

Matthew 8:13 TPT

This faithful Roman officer

With a sick and dying son

Had to sought out Jesus presence

Sought out Jesus voice

To ask for His command

That would bring healing to his son

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

Jesus sent the officer home

To see his faith’s reward

To see his son was healed

At the moment Jesus spoke

And all the soldier had to do

Was take Jesus at his word

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

In that time and place

No person could have known

If the Roman soldiers son

Was well or still dying

But Jesus knew

For with God He was One

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

Perhaps later Matthew

The author of this book

Saw the Roman soldier

Saw his son was cured

But it is also just as likely

That he took Jesus at his word

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

Lord I come to you today

Because illness troubles me

And I seek your face

And your command of healing

Let your faith spring up in me

So I can be obedient

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

Lord I come to you today

With my friend who is ill

Trusting Your Presence in me

Will empower my words

As I command healing

Just as you would do

.

Faith requires hearing

Hearing Jesus voice

And obeying Jesus words

Though there may be no evidence

.

Lord I want to be a witness

To your healing power

To show your salvation

So needed in this hour

And to spread your love and mercy

To bring your kingdom here now
