Thanks for this encouraging testimony Seth. From 1968 until 1990 I prayed for a dying dad right up until he slipped away. I’m still committed to the unshakable truth God heals. We just see through dark glasses.
Does God still heal?
which was very obvious just from her facial expressions and the difficulty with moving her leg. After praying for her, she was able to walk, stand, squat, sleep at night, and was full of smiles. She re-committed her life to Christ and attended church the day Jesus healed her. We were able to visit her again a couple days after the healing to pray with her again and exhort her!
Alfonse, was from the Kibera slum. We ended up talking to him for an hour and a half about his faith, his past, his work history, and his family. He explained that nine months ago he injured his eye while digging through the trash. A thorn went in his right eye and completely took away his sight in that eye. As soon as I heard this, I knew we couldn’t leave this man without praying for his eye to be healed. With Alfonse’s permission, we placed our hands on his right eye and prayed for healing.
At first my prayers were timid, but God kept speaking the word “boldness” into me. So I not only prayed for healing, but commanded healing in Jesus’ name. After Jenny and I prayed, we removed our hands from his eye and asked about its condition. He said he could see beams of light for the first time in nine months. Jenny and I looked at each other and immediately knew we should keep praying.
Here is Amy’s next blog post:
If you read my most recent blog, you know that I’ve been eagerly awaiting an email from Alfonse. This morning one of the pastors approached me and handed me a small note. The top of the note said, “Alfonse!” and below his name was a phone number. Alfonse had walked to the church and told the church guard to pass on the following message to Jenny and I… He woke up this morning able to fully see out of his once blind eye! When I heard this, all I could was scream in pure JOY. Tears filled my eyes.
Butch, your comment is a powerful testimony and I’m so encouraged by your commitment to God’s character.
Awesome testimonies…brought tears of joy to my eyes. God’s word declares who God is (Jehovah Rapha) yet we often permit our failed experiences to redefine Him. Just last evening my wife was praying for a woman in intense shoulder pain, and God healed her. They boldly proclaimed what the bible said about God’s heart toward her, that He cares for her, that He promises good and not evil. Imagine if she had said, “God is fickle, so lets roll the dice and see if He will heal you.” “God watches over His word to perform it!”
Healing is a subject that has just really …I can’t think of the word for it… I don’t want to say bothered..or bothered me… but, I admit that it seems sometimes that there is a mystery to it. Of course God heals, I have seen it with my own eyes and also experienced instant healing. But sometimes I haven’t seen it. Its difficult to figure out why this time or that time, this person or that person. Not this time, not that person…yes you, not her….etc…
