And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9
As I lay crying on my bed I prayed, “Father, how long before I see the manifestation of my healing? How long will I have this horrible pain? I believe Your word is true, not just with my head, but with my heart! Am I missing something?”
Suddenly I saw a drop of blood and heard the Lord speak to my spirit, “When the first drop of blood was spilled, that’s when your healing happened. What happened long ago is still as powerful today. Don’t allow your feelings to hijack your promise.”
That was Saturday night. Sunday morning I was scheduled to sing on the worship team and the thought of standing for that long made me want to call off and stay in bed. Suddenly I threw off the blankets and jumped in the shower. Yeah, I’m not going to allow the devil to talk me out of my blessing. If faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word, I’m not missing church!
Did the pain go away? NO! I just kept thanking God for my healing, iced it, did what I needed to do and went to bed hurting. As I lay in bed, I pictured that drop of blood Jesus shed for my healing and as I thanked Him, I fell asleep.
I awoke Monday morning still in pain, still having trouble walking, took my shower, went to work for a friend and while there I received a call from my daughter, Stacy who lives in Michigan. She told me that when she went to her second service to sing special music, her pastor gave her a word for me. He said, “Anoint your moms head, hands and feet and pray for her healing. Tell her healing is coming through her worship.” She called last night and had her dad lay hands on me and anoint me as she prayed.
I’m taking every opportunity to worship God today, for in due season my feelings will line up with my faith. What Jesus did for me cannot be taken from me. The same power that raised Christ from the dead quickens my body. He’s just that good to me! He’s just that faithful to me! He doesn’t favor one of us above another, His blood works for you just as is does me.
May this song encourage you today as it did me.
