DO YOU BELIEVE IN DIVINE HEALING?
My nose was congested. I could not breathe through my nose freely; I had to keep my mouth open to get some fresh air rapidly. I made up my mind not to tell anyone in my family that I had a challenge.
But I reached a point where I could not hide anymore, I tried to stay in our bedroom to keep away from everyone, but it was obvious that something was wrong because it was not my usual conduct, my wife came home early from work that day, and found me resting on our bed. As he looked at my face, she was shocked. What happened to your nose? “She asked with a shaky voice”.
There was a huge growth protruding through my nose. It was causing so much pain, I could not breathe well, and every time I tried to speak, the pain intensified.
My intention was to pray as usual to get over it promptly, but this time the pain was so stubborn, and could not disappear as usual. It looked like I was not getting anywhere.
She asked me a few questions, but she noticed that it was difficult for me to answer because of the pain. She swiftly phoned my brother, and they speedily arranged to take me to the doctor. My brother insisted that I should just submit to what she tells me because I was helpless.
Just let him know that we will meet at the private hospital, ‘he instructed”.
At that moment, I had another attack, a terrible enemy called the spirit of fear.
The doctor had a shock as well, I could tell from the expression on his face. He looked at me for a moment, and I could perceive that he was not sure what to say, because I was really in pain. He asked me a few questions, and then, performed the usual tasks like taking the body temperature and blood pressure.
I was getting impatient because I knew that he was not yet over, I anticipated that he was going to go through the normal procedure, asking endless questions , but thank God, it turned out the other way round, instead, he asked my wife a few questions and then came back to speak to me.
After further observations, I heard him saying something like a polyp. Later on, I learned later that a polyp is a growth like tumor. This is a condition where cells continue to divide and multiply, even when they are not needed by the body. It can happen in the colon and rectum. This can also lead to the development of cancerous cells.
I could clearly perceive that the doctor was also in a panic mood. He appeared so stressed, maybe because he could not figure out how to make us understand the condition.
He gave me some strong painkillers and allowed me to rest, but still under strict observations.
Later on, I was discharged, but he gave me some medication. He arranged for the scan. I felt helpless because he also mentioned the minor surgery, which I hate with all my heart.
BY HIS STRIPS WE ARE HEALED
As we were driving home, thoughts of fear filled my mind, but in the midst all this confusion, some scriptures came to me, that say:
Who has believed our report?
By His stripes, we are healed.
I thought in my heart, do I have to believe the doctor’s report or the statement of declaration that says, by His stripes, I am healed.
I could not wait to arrive home, so that I could have some privacy to talk to God.
I was not interested in anyone visiting my place or even calling. I decided to put off my phone to focus on God. I was not fit for work, and therefore I had the whole week to deal with the situation at hand. I made a commitment to focus on God. I invited my wife to join me in the prayer of agreement.
THE POWER OF PRAYER AND FASTING
We decided to fast and pray for three days with my wife, the three days were ending on Sunday. On a Sunday morning, I decided to come to church early so that I can have a moment to pray in a private place.
I had time to pray fervently in the Spirit, I started sweating heavily, and amazingly, I could not feel the pain as I continued in my prayer in the Spirit, my body was supercharged and I felt the flow of anointing all over my body.
Eventually, I had an inner witness that a miracle had occurred; we were not many in the church, but a few brothers that normally arrived early to arrange chairs before the church service. Therefore, I had some privacy, and I could take longer in prayer. I also had the opportunity to pray for the main service.
After prayer, I had so much peace, and stayed until the service ended. For the first time after the attack, I was able to concentrate well.
As I arrived home, I decided to use the mirror to check my nose, and thank God, the polyp had disappeared, except a tiny growth inside my nose, I could not keep it to myself, but rather, called everyone to come and witness a miracle.
There were shouts of joy in the home; everyone was so excited for my divine healing.
The next day, I had to see the doctor for the scan. He was almost ready with his equipment to start the work, I should think, he got disappointed, because he could not find anything, he kept asking, what really happened? He got one of the surgery tools and started scratching my nose, but only some dry pieces of dead cells of polyp that were left fell to the ground, but I did not feel much pain.
He asked again, what happened? It looked like no one wanted to give him any explanations, because he may not understand the things of the Spirit. He continued to use cotton wool with his sanitizer, to clean and disinfect the wound. All this time he was speechless.
THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES
Later on, he discharged me, saying that I do not need to go for a scan. The polyp was divinely healed in the Name of Jesus.
Today, I challenge you to believe in the Name above all names. There is power in the name of Jesus. This is not the only testimony; it is just one of the many testimonies.
Maybe you are facing a similar situation, and you do not know what to do.
The Bible says that there is no other name under heaven, given among men by which we must be saved. That means we all need salvation in all areas of our lives.
What should we do?
Believe in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ .The Bible says:
Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Call on the Name of Jesus in faith, and you shall be delivered from all evil .
