Study the Inner Meaning

18 Hablando él estas cosas a ellos, he aquí vino un principal, y le adoró, diciendo: Mi hija acaba de morir; mas ven y pon tu mano sobre ella, y vivirá.

19 Y se levantó Jesús, y le siguió con sus discípulos.

20 Y he aquí una mujer enferma de flujo de sangre hacía doce años, llegándose por detrás, tocó la franja de su vestido,

21 porque decía entre sí: Si tocare solamente su vestido, seré libre.

22 Mas Jesús volviéndose, y mirándola, dijo: Confía, hija, tu fe te ha librado. Y la mujer fue libre desde aquella hora.

23 Y llegado Jesús a casa del principal, viendo los tañedores de flautas, y la multitud que hacía bullicio,

24 les dijo: Apartaos, que la muchacha no está muerta, mas duerme. Y se burlaban de él.

25 Pero cuando la multitud fue echada fuera, entró, y la tomó de su mano, y se levantó la muchacha.

26 Y se difundió esta fama por toda aquella tierra.

Meditate On What God Says About You

By Rev. Todd Beiswenger

Our mind is running all the time, thoughts pouring in for good and for bad. We have a choice as to which thoughts we are going to focus on, and if we can focus on what God says about us we can be happy, grateful and blessed.
