Today I get to share the good news of answered prayer. Many of you readers will recall my earlier post where I talked about the problems I was having with my eye…the jelly part detaching and inflamation in my left eye. A serious problem. (see My New Creation post earlier this month)
The best doctors at Stanford where concerned it indicated a autoimmune disease common in young women (well I am not THAT young, but the doctor thought so!). They tested me for a lot of scary diseases including cancer. I was wondering if I was going to Heaven earlier than I expected but I received the news the day before July 4th, that all the test were negative! Yes negative! What freedom to celebrate along with our National Independence Day here in America.
I was still worried though as the specialist had said chemo was the preferred treatment. However, as I waited to see my doctor again in a few weeks, a miracle began to happen. My eye got better. The floaters decreased. I was encouraged.
“Well Doctor, I have had many people praying for me for divine healing. All my Facebook friends and blog readers. I put it in God’s hands because I knew I would never survive chemo and He is faithful to hear our prayers and answer them.”
He silently nodded along with me.
Now this is a very unexpected reaction from my doctor. He is the top Eye Specialist in the country who feels he can heal anything, and says he is like God in that matter. I, of course, kid him and say, “oh get over yourself, you are too much. only God is God.”
He then said something else remarkable. “Miriam, I want to give you some non steroid eye drops for the floaters and remaining inflammation. They probably won’t work, but let’s try.”
As I pulled away in the cab, tears came to my eyes. I cried for how good and amazing God is. I cried for how much He cares for us, even though we sin and mess up all the time. I cried for how faithful my friends and readers had been to petition God for me and how He is still our healer today. I cried that I wouldn’t have to do chemo.
Once home, I prayed and asked the Lord to anoint the eye drops . I began to use them four times a day as instructed. Another miracle happened. My eyes got even better! The cloud of floaters kind of parted like the Red Sea. I can read words on the page now. I am trusting the Lord for total healing of my eye and that by next month’s appointment, the inflammation will be gone.
What healing miracle do you need today? Do you know that Jesus healed all kinds of diseases and afflictions while He was on earth? Read it for yourself in the gospels in the New Testament that record His deeds. Start with the Book of Matthew. His power to heal is still available to you today. Besides physical healing, Jesus can heal you spiritually by setting you free from sin and death and reconciling you with God.
All it takes is opening your heart to Him and asking Him to forgive your sins. His Holy Spirit will come and dwell in your heart and give you the gift of eternal life. The Bible says “If you confess with your mouth and believe on the Lord’s resurrection, you will be saved and live.” (Romans 10:9) Now, that’s glorious good news. And I might add, a miracle of grace that only comes from God If you want this free gift of spiritual healing and life forever in Heaven, please pray this prayer below:
Lord, I confess with my mouth you are the Son of God and came to die for my sins. I believe you rose from the dead after three days and make your home in Heaven now. I ask for a new life in you and the free gift of eternal life. Please come heal my body, mind and soul from all my pain. I ask for a miracle of healing in you name. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer, do three things:
1. Tell someone you accepted Jesus into your life today.
2. Find a Bible teaching church and start attending to be part of the fellowship of other Christians and learn God’s character and heart for you through hearing His Word preached.
3. Get a Bible and start reading it a little every day. Most churches will give you one if you ask or you can find them at a Christian bookstore where they can help you pick out one.
