I would first like to acknowledge our Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be all glory and praise, now and forevermore. Our God is a healing God and His desire is that we all prosper and be in good health.
On January 4, I asked for an early leave from work, so that I could go home to prepare myself for the annual staff party. I departed work at 6 pm that day. Up until 8 pm, I was still in town, talking with a few friends at a local beauty salon. I really wanted to leave, but every time I said I would in a few minutes, I did not.
Little did I know that God had greater plans for me that night
I finally decided to leave. So, I walked out the shop and bid everyone farewell. As I crossed the road from the gated complex, I saw a lady sitting down crying with her cell phone to her ear. I thought that maybe someone close to her had died and she had just received the sad news. But there was something inside of me telling me to stop.
I believe it was the Holy Spirit, that still, small voice. So I stopped and asked her if she is okay. She replied saying that it was her heart. I asked her where was her family. At this point, she disclosed to me that she is not from the parish and she was not reaching anyone on her mobile.
The power of God came and did something in her
I really felt it for her. I could tell that she was in such great pain, because of her facial expression. I thought to myself that I could call someone to come and help her, but my phone was out of credit!
I then beckoned to a young man I saw across the road but, to my surprise, he didn't even answer my call for help. I prefer to think he did not hear me instead of casting judgment and so I will give him the benefit of the doubt.
I then dialed the only source I know because I was in shock. I really thought this lady was having a cardiac arrest (heart attack). I asked the lady if I could pray for her, and she said yes. I prayed for her in the name of Jesus and I used my God-given authority, and commanded the pain to go, in Jesus' name. I know God would do something and I told Him, He can't allow this lady to die.
The power of God came and did something in her and she stopped crying. I then asked her if she is a Christian and she said no.
Sharing the Gospel with a stranger
I shared the gospel of Jesus with her and the message of the Kingdom. She accepted our Lord and Savior that night and, no doubt, heaven rejoiced.
She later disclose to me that the doctor told her that a piece of fat was growing around her heart and she had been having pain for sometime now. I prayed for her another time and the pain left. However, her heart was flattering a bit.
All I had to do was believe
I did not want to leave until everything was back to normal. But then I decided that I had to go. Jesus was doing the healing not me . All I had to do was believe.
I contacted her some 22 days later, and she is doing well. I saw her yesterday and she said everything is good. I let her know that God did it.
I am believing God that when she goes for another appointment that the doctors will be surprised. So much so, that they will have a desire to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to go into all the world and do what Jesus did.
Matthew 10:8 - Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[a] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
Proverbs 11:30 -The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.
God bless you and I pray even now that if you are sick and reading this, I command your body to be healed in Jesus Name.
