If the Lord heals you now, will you believe?
Many of us currently are going through so much in our lives that we forget about the Lord. Sadly some of us never even heard about the Lord. They don’t know he died and rose again for our sins that we might someday call Heaven our home. We are fighting so many battles today that we needed to be gone a month or more ago. Stress, Oppression, Depression, Sickness in our body, mind and souls, we go to the Doctor so he can write that prescription that we might get better in a week or two. Sometimes the case is more serious and there’s nothing the doctor cane even do. What if we could be done with it all right NOW?
It was in November 2011 in a small church meeting that my Pastor went down to. Not many knew that he had a special anointing that God gave him, he was given to lay hands and pray on the sick and that they would be healed. While down at this service he had seen many a great miracles done that night, deaf ears where opened, and sick where healed, but the one that was the coolest to hear was the one with the man who openly said he didn’t believe in miracles. Even though many of them where happening right in front of his face, he still couldn’t believe that God was capable of doing such miraculous things. Well it just so happened that this man’s arm was in a sling. It was totally broken just a few days prior to this, and he was not able to move it at all let alone without any pain. This is when my pastor asked him “If the Lord gives you total miracle and heals you right now, will you believe?” The man obviously couldn’t say no, he said “yes” and that when my pastor and a few others in the congregation laid hands on his arm and began to pray. Now after they were done praying my pastor told him to try to move his arm because you have to put works with our faith. (James 2:26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”) This is when the man was so surprised to find not only was he able to move his arm without ANY pain, but he was completely healed.
Then man was so excited for this miracle, but also that now he knew Jesus was real. That healings really do happen and they were not a fairy tale from thousands of years ago. He wanted to find a church that he could go to that preached the truth. One that he would KNOW he could get the teaching he needed and start living his life right away. My pastor told him where one was close to where the man lived and to this day he is just on fire for the Lord as ever. His arm still healed and he didn’t ever wear that sling after they prayed for him.
We live in a world where is sad but true that you can’t believe everything we see or hear. People want to trick people into believing the miracles done at their church so they can get your money. Those people will have to stand before God for that one day though. If we just read and do as the bible tells us too, we to can do miracles just the same, Mark 16:18 “…they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” So for those of you with sickness, affliction, stress or who know someone in need of a great miracle but are in doubt of all God can do or that he will do it...If God were to heal you right now, would you believe? Have you tried praying for God to move in your situation? Are you willing to do take a leap of faith to be ride of what trails you are going through? Is being free of your pain and sickness worth it to you? Again, if God healed you right now, would you believe?
