You heard I received a miracle. Now there are some important things I need to say. Please take a moment. These are things that are really heavy on my heart to say to you. I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.
You would think that after how much I suffered I would be overjoyed with my healing. Instead it broke me. Even in the depths of my agony I prayed and said “Jesus, there are so many in greater need of miracles than I am. Please touch them Lord Jesus.”
When He chose to heal me, the goodness and mercy I experienced shook me to my core. I actually felt the fear of the Lord. I felt an urgency to make certain things very clear to whoever knew about my miracle.
Healings are not trophies, they are testimonies. When God gives you a miracle you come under an obligation to give God all the glory and to share it with others to encourage their faith to receive also.
2 Chronicles 32: 25 says, “But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem.” Hezekiah received a great miracle. But he treated his healing like it was a trophy.
I was not healed because thousands were praying for me but because people prayed in faith. You may feel discouraged thinking, “I don’t have that many people praying for me.”
If you need a miracle, the promise of Matthew 18:19 is yours! “If any two of you shall agree as touching anything it will be done.” Right now I want everyone who wrote me with their prayer requests to be healed. I want you to know that Jesus wants to heal you and that releasing your faith will never go unrewarded.
I am grateful for my healing but I am aware of so many who are suffering far worse health challenges than I did. It truly breaks my heart and it is important to me to encourage them.
After God heals you the enemy will try to steal your miracle. Luke 8:11 tells us, “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts…”
He comes to steal as soon as you are healed.
John 5:14 says, “Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”
Satan will tell you, you weren’t really healed. Old symptoms will try to come back. The miracle is not the end of your fight…it is the beginning. Think about it: when a tumor leaves, when pain vanishes and strength returns we have the proof of our healing. To let Satan rob you after such a clear miracle is sin.
You must take your stand and confess your healing against the thief of miracles. Symptoms will subside and you will feel the glow of your miracle once again.
Don’t forget the lessons of your affliction: God didn’t make you sick but He did use it to force you to grow. Look at 2 Corinthians 16: 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”
Here’s a great quote about this: “Every wise workman takes his tools away from the work from time to time that they may be ground and sharpened; so does the only-wise Jehovah take his ministers oftentimes away into darkness and loneliness and trouble, that he may sharpen and prepare them for harder work in his service.” -Robert Murray M’Cheyne
I made a list of new demands that the Holy Spirit put on me now that He had my undivided attention. I shall obey them with unswerving devotion. I don’t want to take this class again.
Please pray about all I have said and may God give you wisdom.
