Matthew 8:14-15 Meditation

“Then Jesus went into Peter’s home and found Peter’s mother-in-law bedridden, severely ill with a fever. The moment Jesus touched her hand she was healed! Immediately she got up and began to make dinner for them.” Matthew 8:14-15 TPT

Peter’s Mother-in-law:
I was lying in bed
Fever had taken me down
I could not lift my head
I was so ill that day
Though I knew Peter was coming
Bringing Jesus our way
I could not get up
Could not prepare for their stay

But then Jesus came and touched me
Put his hand on mine
All sickness left immediately
And I got up to make dinner

There was no fuss and bother
No shouting or commands
Not a single word was uttered
Jesus simply touched me with His hand
I felt the power of His healing
As health to me returned
It was all done in a moment
And I was well again

For Jesus came and touched me
Put his hand on mine
All sickness left immediately
And I got up to make dinner

I had seen some miracles
That Jesus had done
Heard the many healing stories
That the crowds spoke of
But until that day
It all seemed kind of distant
Until I was so sick
And Jesus cured me in an instant

For Jesus came and touched me
Put his hand on mine
All sickness left immediately
And I got up to make dinner
There was love in that touch
That seared through my very soul
Gave me healing and life
Made me whole
Then I knew Jesus loved me
Knew he was the Son of God
It was a life-changing moment
To have that touch from God

For Jesus came and touched me
Put his hand on mine
All sickness left immediately
And I got up to make dinner

When Jesus died on the cross
I could not understand
How God’s love could die
At our hand
But his resurrection showed
The power I’d experienced
The power to give life
And health and wholeness

Then Jesus came and touched me
Gave me his salvation
Made me a child of God
Through the power of his kingdom

Now I live in the power
Of Jesus life in me
His indwelling Spirit
My seal and guarantee
I can daily know His touch
Bringing wholeness to me
Healing and restoring
Filling me with His glory

For Jesus came and touched me
Gave me his salvation
Made me a child of God
Through the power of his kingdom

Now I seek to touch others
With Jesus hand in mine
His indwelling Spirit
My guidance and power
So all can know His touch
Bringing wholeness and healing
Salvation and His kingdom
Filling earth with His glory

For Jesus came and touched me
Gave me his salvation
Made me a child of God
Through the power of his kingdom
