Matthew 8:16 Meditation

“That evening the people brought to him many who were demonized. And by Jesus only speaking a word of healing over them, they were totally set free from their torment, and everyone who was sick received their healing!” Matthew 8:16 TPT

That very evening
Peter‘s mother-in-law‘s house
Became a place of healing
Not just for her but for others
No doubt her neighbors had heard
How she was quickly healed
And that Jesus was present
For the evening meal

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word

So into her house
Came the demonized and ill
Seeking Jesus for healing
For they wanted to be well
No one was turned away
Or left outside
Jesus healed them all
With just a single word

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word

No doubt in the crowd that night
Sinners were healed too
Released from their torment
By a single word
Evidence in action
Of God’s forgiving, loving heart
And His desire that they know Jesus
As their saving Lord

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word

Lord I come to you today
Through faith in this testimony
Seeking your healing
For I want to be made well
You will not turn me away
Or judge me for my sin
But reach out to love me
With a healing word

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word

Lord I come to you today
Through faith in this testimony
Seeking your healing
For others to be healed through me
You do not turn them away
Or judge them for their sin
But reach out through me to love me
With a healing word

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word

Every day and evening
Let my house be
A place to come for healing
No matter who it is in need
May my neighbors hear
How You quickly heal
And that You Jesus are present
Your salvation to reveal

Jesus the testimony of your works
Inspires faith and hope in us
Encourages us to seek your Presence
To hear Your healing word
