Scripture: And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased. (John6:2)
We serve a miracle working God! A miracle can be defined as an extraordinary, supernatural event brought about by divine intervention. Sometimes God uses miracles to manifest His works in the earth. The Bible is replete with miracles wrought by our Lord, in both the Old and New Testaments. There is mention of many miracles of healing in the New Testament. The woman healed of the issue of blood, the healing of the man who received his sight after having been born blind and remaining blind for 38 years of his life, the healing of the man who laid lame at the pool of Bethesda, and the healing of the centurion’s servant are just a few examples.
Our God is the same yesterday, today, and for ever. I have so much to thank God for! How about you? I know God is Jehovah RAPHA,The God that Healeth! God has miraculously healed my body on more than one occasion! God is not just a God who can heal a headache or a stomachache. He can do so much more than that! When I was just a tiny tot, I suffered from dystonia, a neurological disorder: uncontrolled or slow movement, such as a problem with muscle tone, that leads to involuntary muscle contractions or spasms. It wasn’t until years later when I was an adult scouring through medical books and articles, that I learned what had been wrong with me. My mother had taken me to specialists as a toddler, but the doctors didn’t have any answers for her. In my case, my head would move constantly, and my eyes would move from side to side nonstop. One day while my mother was busy in the kitchen, she stopped to take a “prayer break.” Now as far back as I can remember, my mother has been a mighty prayer warrior. My siblings and I were taught how to go boldly to the throne of grace, when we were quite young. So, as mom was praying fervently, interceding for someone, I went into the kitchen, and looking up at my mom (I was probably not much higher than the hemline of her skirt) I said, “mommy say me, mommy say me.” After a while, my mother realized that I was asking her to pray for me, and she did. After my mom prayed for me, she continued in prayer, and I went on my merry way, content. It had to have been the Lord who orchestrated this turn of events, considering my age at that time. Later that evening, as we sat down for dinner, unknown to me, (that which I could not articulate) something wonderful had happened!!! My head wasn’t moving, and my eyes were blinking normally! I was sitting still, just like my sisters and brothers! God had answered my mother’s prayer! He had healed me that very day! Praise God! When doctors had failed me, Jesus the “Great Physician” came to my rescue! When my siblings and I were children, at meal times we always sat at the same place around the table, in our “special” seats. On this particular day, I was the first child seated. (I must have been hungry. :-)) Initially when I sat down at the table, my mom didn’t see me sitting in my little part of the world, and she undoubtedly had not realized what the Lord had done. But, when my mom looked over at me sitting in my chair, head still and eyes blinking normally, she knew that God had miraculously healed my body! Glory to God! You can probably imagine the excitement, the thankfulness, and the praise my mother felt and rendered unto God that evening! What a time! To God be the glory! I know if He could do that, He can also heal me of the neurological condition that I now suffer from. If He doesn’t heal my body, I know that He is able! I am waiting on Him! So, if you’re waiting for the Lord to perform the miraculous in your life, hang in there. He may not come when you want Him to, but He is an on time God, all the time, every time! Can God? God can! Share your testimonies of miraculous healing, or of any miraculous events in your life! May the Lord bless you, today and every day!
