God send His Word, and I was healed
When I was fighting cancer, I knew how important it was to know the Word and to act on it for health and healing. Had it not been for the Word of God — knowing that God’s Word works, that God would never lie and that He keeps His promises — I would not be alive today. God sent His Word, and I was healed.
But when our daughter, Lisa, was born with a condition similar to cerebral palsy and brain damage, my husband and I knew very little about healing. John was the pastor of a traditional church that didn’t teach about healing. Lack of knowledge could have destroyed us (See Hosea 4:6), but somehow we knew that God’s Word was true.
We started by reading in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John about the miraculous healings Jesus performed. Then we read Hebrews 13:8, where it says Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. We prayed and asked God to touch and heal our baby girl. Jesus did just that. He sent His Word and healed Lisa. She is a perfectly normal adult now — strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
My family has reaped the benefits of learning that God desires for everybody to be well. And HE sent His Word to make sure we would know it.
He is no respecter of persons. He’ll do the same for you.
Thank You, Lord, for sending Your Word to heal us. You never change — Your Word always brings healing. I’m glad my family and I are delivered from the destructions the enemy has planned for us.
I believe that You heal and deliver us daily.
