Matthew 12:22-23 Meditation

“Then a man was brought before Jesus who had a demon spirit that made him both blind and unable to speak. Jesus healed him instantly, and he could see and talk again! The crowds went wild with amazement as they witnessed this miracle. And they kept saying to one another, “Could this man be the Messiah?” Matthew 12:22-23 TPT

“Then a man was brought before Jesus”
This man had friends or relatives
Who cared about his plight
Perhaps they had known him
When he had his speech and sight
They heard that Jesus was near
And knew of His reputation
They brought this man to Jesus
In hope of healing restoration

“who had a demon spirit that made him both blind and unable to speak.”
If we could see with Jesus’ eyes
Perhaps we would see
This demonic spirit binding
This man’s eyes and mouth
Was it this man’s sin
That gave the demon this hold?
Or was it a curse?
We are not told.

“Jesus healed him instantly,”
Jesus’ compassion
His forgiveness for sin
And His power to break curses
Were seen in this instant healing
Jesus did not hesitate
To free the man from bondage
For Jesus had a mandate
To set all free from satan’s kingdom

“and he could see and talk again!
Jesus power and authority
Were easily enough to set the man free
To talk and see as humans should
As we are made in the image of God
Healed and restored
The man was free
To see and speak again
Like a child of God should be.

“The crowds went wild with amazement as they witnessed this miracle.”
The crowd was really excited
To witness Jesus’ healing power
And His ability to free us
From demonic powers
For they had seen with their own eyes
God acting through a man
To bring healing and freedom
As only a true Son of God can

“And they kept saying to one another, “Could this man be the Messiah?””
This demonstration of power
Raised Jesus up in their sight
For they had never seen before
Someone weird such might
So it lead them to conclude
That Jesus came from God
And question if He could be
Their awaited saviour and lord.

Jesus miracle working power
Was and is a revelation
Of the kingdom of God
It’s healing and freedom
When we see it at work
It’s most exciting to behold
And point to Jesus as our Saviour
Jesus as Son of God

Invitation to Healing

Jesus:
From the very beginning of My public ministry
As I taught of the kingdom of God
I also healed every disease
Of those who came for healing to me
Epileptics, paralytics and the demon tormented
I healed them all, set them all free

My words carry great authority
Such as this world has never seen
My kingdom’s reign, My kingdom’s rule
Brings health and healing to body and soul

A leper approached, worshipped Me
Saying “You have the power to heal”
But as he doubted I would want to heal him
To reassure him I touched him personally
“Of course I want to heal you – be healed!”
And of his sickness the man was freed

My words carry great authority
Such as this world has never seen
My kingdom’s reign, My kingdom’s rule
Brings health and healing to body and soul

A Roman officer saw My authority
And he came to ask Me for healing
For his son lying sick and paralysed at home
‘Just command his healing and it will be done’
Was the faith he put in Me
My agreement with him healed his son of disease

My words carry great authority
Such as this world has never seen
My kingdom’s reign, My kingdom’s rule
Brings health and healing to body and soul

Peter’s Mother-in-law had a fever
Which was healed by one touch from Me
People flocked to her house that evening
Seeking demon torment release
And healing for sickness too
One word of healing spoken to each
Released them from their torment

Healed them all, set them free
My Presence carries great authority
Such as this world has never seen
My kingdom’s reign, My kingdom’s rule
Brings health and healing to body and soul

I have come into your life
To live in you as you live in Me
I’ve come to bring My kingdom to you
With all it’s health and healing power
I want to heal you, body and soul
My touch to experience for eternity
My words of healing I speak to you
Be healed My love, I command it for you!

Me:
Lord I bow before Your authority
I receive Your Kingdom, Your Presence in me
I receive Your words of power
That command healing and freedom for me
I know that You have paid the cost
To make me Yours, Your kingdom child
And I rejoice in Your resurrection power
That heals and saves me, body and soul. 

Restoration

Before the foundations of this world were made

God chose you to become in Christ

His holy and blameless child

Living in His tender loving care

This is the new covenant I make with you today says the LORD: 

I will put my laws in your mind and I will write them on your heart

I will be your God, and you will be one of my people. 

And you will know me. 

I will forgive all your wickedness

I will never again remember your sins

So the Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon you

To comfort your broken heart

To proclaim freedom and release

Even in your mourning you will know that the time of the LORD’s favour has come

And with it the day of God’s anger against your enemies

He will give a crown of beauty for the ashes of your past

A joyous blessing instead of mourning

Festive praise instead of despair

Instead of shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour

And everlasting joy will be yours

For the LORD loves justice

He hates robbery and wrongdoing

He will faithfully reward you for your suffering 

Everyone will realise that you are a person the LORD has blessed

For God has dressed you with the clothing of salvation 

And draped you in His robe of righteousness

Your salvation will come like the dawn

And your wounds will quickly heal

Godliness will lead you forward

And the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind

Ephesians 1:4-5; Hebrews 8:10-12; Isaiah 61:1-3, 7-10; 58:8 

Joy Eternal

“Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory! But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And even more than that, we overflow with triumphant joy in our new relationship of living reconciled to God—all because of Jesus Christ!” Romans 5:2-3, 11 TPT

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

Once I was a stranger
To God and His ways
Thinking He could not love me
Because of my sinful days
But Jesus called me to be His
And all that fell away

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

Jesus took my sinful self
And nailed it to His cross
It died with His last breath
Stayed in the grave forever
We rose again in brand new life
To be with God, right by His side

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

Jesus took my sin hardened heart
And gave me a new loving one
He gave me a new spirit
Joined to his Holy One
And made me One with Him
On His eternal throne!

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

Jesus’ holiness and righteousness
Have made me right with God
Given me His intimate relationship
With our Father God
For all He is He’s given to me
I’m His beloved bride

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

All the light that flows from heaven
The forgiveness, love, peace and joy
Now fill my daily horizons
As by God’s side we sit
Bringing Heaven’s rule to this earth
As Our daily ministry

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

When trials try to darken our days
It is to heaven we turn and gaze
For God’s solutions are not ours
And only He really has the answers
And the power to keep us steadfast and strong
Even through the most difficult challenge

There is a joy eternal
Which no circumstance can change
The joy of knowing God as His child
Fully reconciled to Him

Matthew 12:14-15 Meditation

Immediately the Pharisees went out and started to scheme about how they would do away with him. Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he left by another way. Massive crowds followed him from there, and he healed all who were sick. Matthew 12:14-15 TPT

The Old Testament Law
God’s Words written down
And turned into rules
That a man could perform
Was what the Pharisees trusted in
To make them right with God
So they turned away from Jesus
And planned to end His life

But the crowds followed Jesus
The One who had the power
To make their lives better
Healing sickness at that hour
Jesus had shown
He had God’s authority
God’s power to heal
And restore their dignity

All of those who sought His help
Not one did Jesus deny
They all received the healing
They so clearly desired
Where the Law could not help them
Jesus clearly could and did
So they put their faith in Jesus
The merciful Son of God

There are many today
Who deny Jesus’ healing power
Find rules and regulations
To say it is not for this day or hour
And turn themselves and others away
From Jesus’ resurrection power
Thinking to earn their way to heaven
By their righteous behaviour

But I seek to follow Jesus
To go where He leads
To hear His voice and follow
To live in His authority
To rely on His love and mercy
For my daily needs
And His resurrection life in me
His power and authority

Jesus life in me brings healing
And freedom from sin
As in His righteousness I walk
Learning to make it mine
And the path that He takes me on
Brings me to God’s right hand
A life of love and joy and forgiveness
Where heaven is my home

Matthew 12:9-13 Meditation

“Then Jesus left them and went into the synagogue where he encountered a man who had an atrophied, paralyzed hand. The fault-finding Pharisees asked Jesus, “Is it permissible to perform a work of healing on the Sabbath, when no one is supposed to work?” They only asked him this question because they hoped to accuse him of breaking the Jewish laws. He answered them, “If any of you had a lamb that fell into a ditch on the Sabbath, wouldn’t you reach out your hand and lift it out? Isn’t a man much more valuable than a lamb? So of course, it’s always proper to do miracles, even on the Sabbath.” Then he turned to the man and said, “Hold out your hand!” And as he stretched it out, it was restored, exactly like the other.” Matthew 12:9-13 TPT

The Pharisees knew of Your miracles
Knew You could heal the man
Yet that knowledge did not lead them to faith
For they did not think they needed saving

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it

The Pharisees had come to show
That You could not be God
Use Your love and mercy as trap
To get You to break God’s law

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it

The Pharisees did not understand
The real point of God’s Law
Was not to show we could perform it
But cause us to seek God‘s mercy

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it

You spoke of how God values
Every single person‘s life
And to demonstrate His mercy
You healed the man’s hand

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it

The man with the withered hand
Was willing to receive
Stretched out his hand just as You asked
And was made whole again

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it

The Pharisees with pride-hard hearts
Gained nothing from their knowledge
But the man who trusted You Jesus
Gained God’s mercy and healing

God’s love and mercy Jesus
Was what You lived daily
Giving healing and forgiveness
To those who would receive it
