A Christmas Miracle

Hello everyone,

I want to tell you about Jesus the Healer. Those who have followed this blog might be thinking right now, what have you got to say? Your husband died, what can you tell me about healing? Yes I was there with you on that one–my faith was greatly shaken when my husband died just a year and a half ago of Glioblastoma–not my faith in God, but to pray for healing. I had believed with all my heart that my husband would live and not die, and when he died it rocked my world.

My husband’s death didn’t change God, it changed me!

I will not go into all that I have been through in the last two years, I have yet to understand it all. It is far too vast and complicated to relate or relive again, but I will tell you that I can fervently say, JESUS is the HEALER!

A white-faced and shaken co-worker related to me one day a couple of weeks ago that she was scheduled to go to University of Michigan Hospital to start the process for a liver transplant. The MRI showed that without a new liver her life would be ending soon. She has a husband and three little kids and should have a long life ahead of her. I told her God can heal her and related healing stories that I had experienced; especially one of a co-worker that had hounded me to pray for her that God would heal her of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Recalling that incident, I admit that I didn’t have the faith to just jump right in and pray for her, as she was not a believer. I know God often heals unbelievers, though it is a gift and not the Covenant right as that of the children of God. Therefore, I was concerned that it might not happen and send her further away from God. Instead I urged her that she pray and behind the scenes I sought God and waited.

One early morning He woke me up with scriptures, one after another that I wrote down, and He spoke to my heart…

“Today is the day to pray for Carol, I’m going to heal her.”

Now I had ‘heard’ from God and had the faith to pray. She held the door for me that morning, the first person I saw. I asked her if she still wanted prayer and said, “God’s going to heal you today!” She lit up with excitement and said, yes! We enlisted another co-worker, a Christian, that she was especially close to, to join us in prayer and set the time to be at our break. In the privacy of the bathroom we tried to lay hands on her, but the Fire of God came down so HOT that we couldn’t touch her and with tears streaming down all three of our faces, she was instantly healed! As Carol sailed out of the bathroom, with a huge smile on her face, she looked back at me and announced, “You didn’t know this but today is my birthday!”

No I didn’t know it was her birthday, but God knew

Carol told me the next day that she had gone home and rode her horse for the first time in two years. Praise Jesus for His healing power! I felt it was lack of faith that I didn’t pray for her right away, but maybe God didn’t give me that faith because He wanted her to have a special birthday surprise. His timing is perfect if we wait on Him, and this extra special day especially spoke to this unbeliever that God knows and cares about her personally–He knows her birthday! Later we went together to pray for another of our co-workers that was sick, and that day I had the privilege to witness Carol ask the Lord to come into her heart Glory to God!

So I told this current co-worker that story and talked to her of faith. She said she is a believer and believed that God will heal her. I didn’t lay hands on her, as often we Christians do. Though I kept searching my heart to see if He wanted me to, I didn’t receive that lead. We were in agreement and we believed. I have been immersing myself in the Word of God and countless teachings, prayer and counseling; working on my heart, my soul and building my spirit man. I wasn’t kidding when I said my world was rocked and I knew that the only way I would survive was to dig deeper into the Word and the Ways of God–dig until I found out what is amiss in me. An unending job–there is always more and to build on what is right–the Truth of the Word!

One day at home, as I was praying for my co-worker, again the Lord spoke to my heart, so clear it was nearly audible. “I have heard your prayer and I am going to heal her.”

As the tears streamed down my face I rejoiced and thanked Him for His unending Faithfulness!

Over the period of about two weeks the Lord asked me to relate to her a couple more stories of personal accounts I had experienced of His Healing Power, to build her faith, keep her strengthened. She is amazing and grabbed ahold with a child-like faith that was matter of fact–a done deal. I am sure this made God smile. It wasn’t begging or pleading or straining, just belief that what He says He will do–HE WILL.

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20

UNWAVERING TRUST

One time I did speak to her about fear. I could see something in her eyes. She admitted that she had some. Well, who wouldn’t? But I explained that fear was the opposite of faith and it is double-minded. To be in faith, fear must go!

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Again with that wonderful child-like trust she cast fear down, firmed up her faith and believed. At about a week and a half she said she was feeling better. I said “that’s cuz you’re healed.” she nodded in firm agreement. U of M had called but she was sleeping and they left a message. She tried to call them for a week but could only leave messages that they didn’t return. I told her that is because she is healed. She whole-heartedly agreed and at the end of two weeks, or thereabouts, went in for a second MRI.

Two MRI’S side by side and a puzzled doctor, whom has no explanation, but said, “What are you doing here? There’s nothing wrong with you!” Her new MRI showed the same liver, but brand new, completely healed. He came to set the captives free!

Praise Jesus–The Healer!

“O Lord my God I cried to thee for help, and thou hast healed me.” Psalms 30:2

Glory to God!!

It wasn’t my faith that brought forth her healing, it was hers! I poured myself out for my husband to be healed; I believed with all my heart, but the person that has the need must connect their faith with the Healing Power of God. Jesus is always willing to be your Healer. Healing power is always flowing out to you, if you simply believe. But things like doubt and fear and double-mindedness or words that speak unbelief, quench that power. The means to drive that out is to know the Word of God. Get it in your heart until you know that you know that you know!

If you are a born again believer it is your covenant right to walk in health. Your covenant says that you are already the healed and sickness, disease the trespasser. Line up your heart, mind and especially your mouth with the Word of God. You need not beg God to heal but as you ask Him, simultaneously demand, using your God-given authority, that sickness leave; speak of your body healed. Many do not believe until they see the symptoms gone; oh if we would only believe before we see, then it would be! Find out what your covenant with God is and Live in the fullness of all it contains!

Many say that God gives them sickness to teach them something. Blasphemy!

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” I Peter 2:24

Jesus is the Healer.

He is always good! Don’t believe that lie, but be built up in what His Word really says to LIVE HEALED.

“If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord, your healer.” Exodus 15:26

May we all attain the wonderful child-like faith that my co-worker friend displayed. May we all receive the gift of Healing that she received.

May we BELIEVE!

Thank you Lord Jesus! Thank you for Healing my friend! May this Christmas Miracle remind us all that Jesus and His Love is the reason for the season.

May you experience the unending Love of God and His Miracle Working Power in your life today!

Merry Christmas!

“And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.'” Mark 16:15-18

 

A Clean Page

See your life each morning as a fresh new page.

You are not starting a new book or chapter, but you are adding to what has been written.

“Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love, for in thee I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to thee I lift up my soul.” Psalms 143:8

Most memories, you will not be able to crumple and discard as you would a miswritten page. No, you carry them throughout your life, but they serve to improve, enhance and even motivate you as you walk the path.

What has caused you to stumble will remind you to not walk that way again. Pass on by the hurtful entries–you must not reread them. They can control you if you let them, but I remind you that my blood is sufficient and complete–you lack nothing!

“For thou has delivered my soul from death, yea, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.” Psalms 56:13

You are made perfect by My righteousness.

The price has been paid for every painful, hurtful event in your life; I carried you, by first carrying it to the cross.

“And you, who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, having canceled the bond which stood against us with its legal demands; this he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in him.” Colossians 2:13-15

Be satisfied knowing you have no loss!

You are complete in Me.

“But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, then to wait until his enemies should be made a stool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:12-14

So when memories come to taunt, say–‘It’s under the blood–you will hurt me no more!’

I am the beloved

I am loved!

“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5b-6

 

What is Happiness?

Happiness is not an expression of your surroundings, but a condition of your heart. If your heart is not sound, neither will you be found to be happy.

A kind and gentle heart can be just as unhappy if trust is broken–pain attacks; the heart of a gentle soul retreats, often feels defeat and may never trust again.

The hardened heart brazenly moves forward, brashly confident; a disguise of fear–years of pain have taught it to remain, aloof. Both seemingly opposite hearts are the same–wounded.

I speak gently concerning this subject, for I know how deeply you have been hurt. When trust is broken, it is not easy to repair. Man cannot heal a broken heart, but I can and I AM here. I am near to the brokenhearted and I see your pain–you need not tell Me–I SEE.

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18

I need you to trust Me.

We are going to begin anew, to review what isn’t right. I AM asking you to give up the fight–and REST.

You see it isn’t a fight, if you’ll fall into My arms, for I’ve got your back–I’ll keep you from harm. Together we’ll carve a new path–walking hand in hand and you’ll see that, as I put My trust in you, you’ll begin to trust me too. And soon, very soon, you’ll find that all is well. Your broken heart will begin to mend, as pain and confusion come to an end.

“Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105

Soon you will see that, trust placed in Me, is the only way to be free.

So I tell you that ‘happiness’ is a thin veil if under the surface your heart is not well–all will come crashing down. We must get to the core–into your heart I will pour My love and remove the veil. The joy that springs forth of the happiness now is, truly a heart made well.

Fall into My arms.

Let us begin

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not they Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” Psalms 51:10-12

“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.” Psalms 128:1-2

“The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth for evermore.” Psalms 121:5-8

“O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:8

 

I AM The Cure

Anxiety has become an epidemic of great proportion, but they treat the symptoms with a substance that will not cure, only pacify.

I want to heal them.

I want to remove the fear–wipe away every tear.

I AM the cure.

“With them indeed is fulfilled the prophesy of Isaiah which says: ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. for this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.'” Matthew 13:14-15

Many expect instant answers for relief from the pain; invested a lifetime without any gain; yet give me just a moment–refusing to stay.

Yield to My Way; the Way to be healed–yield!

It takes time to build a kingdom and yet moments to tear it down. Just turn away and destruction begins–until you yield again–turn My way and enter in.

Resisting is the key–resist Satan and he will flee. But resisting isn’t passive you see.

Aggressively order him to leave!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

When anxiety comes–command fear to go; order pain away. I didn’t leave you defenseless, but you must come to your senses–it’s all in My Word. I will heal your body, but you must guard the words you speak. I will deliver you from shame, but you must find the time to seek.

Yield to stay–I AM the Way you seek…

Guard what you speak!

“And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; be it done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.” Matthew 8:13

“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.” Matthew 9:20-22

“And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened.–” Matthew 9:27-30a

“And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal.” Matthew 9:1-2

“And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.” Matthew 9:6

“And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever; he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him. That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14-17

“”Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who build his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”” Matthew 7:24-27

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” Psalms 128:1

 

Boarded Rooms

There are ‘rooms’ in your heart that you’ve ‘boarded off’ even to Me.

No longer allowing anyone to see, you hide the trouble inside, but trouble doesn’t hide–it festers and thrives. Trouble, like wounds that have never been healed; times you’ve been hurt–you thought it was sealed, steal your joy, laughter and love.

Like cancer beneath the surface ‘not seen’ corrupts the body, so ‘chapters’ hidden in your life bring strife. For you are fighting giants in your soul and no one knows–no one but Me.

I would have spared you, agony, but you made choices apart from Me.

Choices that stole your love away–stole the sun from your sunny day. And you suffer still, another day, for hiding this all away.

You’ve boarded up places in your heart–that is where we must start, to make this heart new again.

Your heart–aches to be free. Give it to Me.

Simply ask.

Invite Me, to each room set apart.

Pull the boards down, open your heart

to Me

I AM Love; I’ll enter in. No one will see, inside, but Me. I’ll heal the wounds, remove the debris–cast your cares all upon Me!

Just ask.

I AM ready, are you?

“Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” Proverbs 12:25

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22

“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:1-8

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10

“Blessed be the Lord! for he has heard the voice of my supplications. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed. O save thy people, and bless thy heritage; be thou their shepherd, and carry them for ever.” Psalms 28:6-9

 

 

If You Believe

Deliverance is not an option, it is a command; for My people must be free to do the work that I have called them to do.

A Bride without spot or blemish begins as a Bride set free

Her needs are met, she has no regret, for her True Love is her first love and it is there that her heart remains.

You see I knew you before and I loved you then, and I never let go–once we begin. I command that you walk the sin-free life; put an end to all bitterness and strife, and see Me for who I truly AM–

Savior, Husband, King and Friend

I share the throne with no other god. And if you toil and fuss you have lost trust, and are serving another it’s true.

I bind no one, but know no bounds. I bring no fear, but deliverance is here; for My Beloved must walk as I walked. I delivered and healed and maintain this still, for those who will wait upon Me. I bring new life, put an end to strife and those who are anxious will see…

My Peace that I gave, did not end at the grave, but is offered to all who’ll receive…

If you believe

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.'” Isaiah 44:6

“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.” Matthew 9:20-22

“As they were going away, behold, a dumb demoniac was brought to him and when the demon had been cast out, the dumb man spoke; and the crowds marveled, saying, “Never was anything like this seen in Israel.'” Matthew 9:32-33

“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity.” Matthew 9:35

“And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:30-31

“Husbands love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27

“No one born of God commits sin; for God’s nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God. By this it may be seen who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not do right is not of God, nor he who does not love his brother.” I John 3:9-10

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you wait for these, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.” II Peter 3:10-14

“Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good life let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exists, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:13-18

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'” John 11:25-26

 

 

Choose Forgiveness

Make peace with your brother while you have opportunity, for you don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Let us examine your heart together…

  • Is there strife?
  • Is there unforgiveness?
  • Is there anger?

Or is it merely sorrow, for you have been unrelenting and kept the former in your heart for so long you no longer remember why? A bitter heart will rot the bones and eventually destroy your life. Whereas, forgiveness, takes a moment of humility that will deliver you from a lifetime of evil.

Make the decision today to open your heart to Me and allow Me to sort out what you have held tight, held captive and not trusted even yourself to examine. Together we can eradicate all you harbor that brings harm; irrigate the wound and let healing come. The weight that lifts off your shoulders will add years to your life–the sadness and anger will be gone.

When you forgive, I will forgive you and new life you will find. If only you would choose to forgive.
