What do you believe about healing? A lot of folks who have never experienced God’s healing power explain it away by saying that those gifts have ceased. Tell that to Dan and Becky Haverkos whose story of healing is one of five miracles they describe in their recent blog. Jesus is still in the healing business. Our lack of experience is a poor starting point for constructing a theology of divine inactivity.
 
HealingAs we walked into this small village, we were greeted by a woman who was one of the local leaders.  She sat us down and introduced to a few other women from the village. 
 
One of these women had experienced a stroke just two months earlier and the right side of her body had been noticably impaired.  Her right arm hung relatively limply at her side and the right part of her mouth, eye and face sagged as a sad reminder of the life threatening trauma she had gone through. 
 
The women explained that their friend was unable to use her right arm for gardening or manual labor and was not even capable of holding even her smallest child on her right side.

 
As Becky and I knelt down beside her and began to pray we felt the small framed woman start to fall backwards toward the ground.  I could feel Becky’s hesitation, alongside my own, as we both strained to support the woman’s back, so that she wouldn’t recline onto the ground.  After a few minutes of praying we both gave way and laid the woman on the dirt covered ground.  We continued to pray for God to heal this woman’s arm and the right side of her body.  The woman was straining and shaking on the ground.  All of the sudden the woman started speaking out words of prayer and thanksgiving to Jesus Christ.  As we closed out our prayer, we helped to lift the woman to her feet.
 
As we embraced the women and children of the tribe and say our goodbyes the stroke affected woman walked over towards us.  She extended her frail right hand in my direction as she lowered her head in gratitude.  I reached forward and took ahold of her hand.  As I gently squeezed I was amazed to feel what was occurring.  The woman grasped my hand and shook with such force that I can only imagine the governor of California might deliver.  Praise God for His miraculous power.
