Recently I was experiencing sharp pain, and my husband was telling me to take his painkillers, which do not take away all his pain anyway. I know that the Lord has been telling me in my trials ever since I asked Him to teach me about sickness and healing, not to go to the world for help, but to trust absolutely in Him. I had asked my friend in Wales to pray with me for the removal of this horrible shooting pain which had come into the inner joint at the top of my leg some weeks ago. It would occur when I would turn quickly while standing or put pressure on my right leg. I also asked a blogger friend to pray for this pain to go.
One morning I turned the television onto a religious program and the man speaking was giving a testimony saying that he had been given steroids for some illness but he actually got worse and not better. Then, through prayer, he had been healed. I went immediately onto another religious channel and a nun was saying to only trust in the Lord for healing.
I could hardly believe the perfect timing of this man's testimony and the nun's encouragement to trust in the Lord above all what man could do as far as my healing was concerned..
Later, this pain was so sharp that I was almost tempted to take the pain killers. Then a car advert came up on the television on which a song was being sung, and the word 'temptation' stood out very clearly within it. I knew that the Lord was showing me not to be tempted to do what the enemy was suggesting in my carnal mind, (to take the painkillers ), but to trust absolutely in His Word to me .
When I first asked the Lord to teach me about sickness and healing two of the scriptures He showed me in His Word when He began to encourage me to trust Him were the following:-
2 Chronicles ch.16 v.12:- 'In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Aza was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though his disease was severe, even in his illness he did not seek help from the LORD, but only from the physicians'
Mark ch. 5 vs.25 and 26:-
'And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.'
Jesus is the Word of God, and Hebrews ch. 13 v.8 states:-'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.' and now, after praying with my friend in Wales (who has also experienced healings from the Lord), and asking a blogger friend to pray for me THAT PAIN HAS GONE!! Praise the Lord.
2 Corinthians ch. 10 vs.4 and 5 state:-
'The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.'
I find the more I do this the more I am able to block the lies of the spiritual enemy who tries to get me to question God's Word, just as he did with Eve saying:- 'Did God really say'.
I say to him:- 'Yes, God did say.'
