39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive. 42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord. 43 Peter stayed in Joppa for some time with a tanner named Simon.
We must also recognize that whenever the Lord decided to perform a miracle through his apostles, he always guided them by an inner moving of the Spirit.
These verses also show a sign of humility, all parts of our body being applied to the worship of God, and the bodily posture helping the weak mind. But whenever we kneel, we must be careful that our hearts match the humility of the action.
The rule of happiness of believers is to live and die to him; and when we dedicate ourselves to him, Christ is a blessing to us as much in life as in death.
We know, Peter had been a minister of great power, but he directed people to Christ.
