I’ve always known that God was a healing God. When I was born, I had newborn pneumonia, but God miraculously healed me and I had zero complications in life from that point forward. So, I have always known that He can heal. I’m living proof of that. However, I kind of forgot that He can heal me anytime that I ask!
For the last six months, I have dealt with chronic chest pain. I felt fine otherwise, but I was just in pain. So, I decided I would just live with it, because it wasn’t that big of a deal. Last week, I was in Romania with Pastor Dennis and the interns at a youth conference. One night, they were praying for healing for people that were struggling with an ankle injury. During the prayer, I remember saying to God, “Man! I wish you would have them call out for healing for chest pain. I’m sick of this!” And God responded to me, “Just believe for it!” I immediately said, “Ok God, I KNOW you can heal me right now even if they don’t pray for me!” Immediately, my pain went away and I haven’t had any pain since! God healed me!
I grew up in church, so I often thought that a miraculous healing moment had to be some crazy fireworks kind of experience. Through this story, God showed me that it doesn’t always have to be some spectacular, crazy, emotional experience, but that God is ready to heal us all of the time! He’s just waiting for us to believe Him for it! I was waiting for someone else to step out in faith for me, but it was MY faith that God was waiting for!
So, if you’re in need of a miracle, step out in faith, believe that He can do it, because He is faithful!
