Miraculous healing

Jehovah Rapha the Lord who heals healing

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

I am always reading stories in the bibles about miracles that have happened

Old testament

  • Creation: genesis 1-2
  • Birth of Isaac genesis 21:1
  • Red Sea divided exodus 14:21-31
  • Wall of Jericho falls down Joshua 6:6-20
  • Rack, shack, and Benny ( those are their veggie tale names) are delivered from the fiery furnace Daniel 3:10-27

New Testament

  • Deaf and blond man healed mark :7:31-37
  • Widows son is raised from the dead Luke 7:11-18
  • Water made to wine John 2:1-11
  • Bind man healed John 9 :1-7
  • Lazarus is raised from the dead John 11:38-14
  • 4000 fed with 7  loaves of bread and a few fish Matthew 15:30
  • Woman’s blood issue healed Matthew 9:20

And the list could go on and on. we don’t often think of miracles happening today.
We know sicknesses are cured, marriages are restored, friendships mended, finances straightened out, and assume coincidences happen.

Friends God does not work in coincidence. And miracles DO HAPPEN TODAY.

Although not often do we see seas split or dead raised to life but we see peopled healed. We see forgiveness happen, we see financial gain during recession. All things that man can not do on his own.

I have been beyond blessed to witness a recent miracle in one of my best friends. She was healed from Raynaud’s and celiac disease
Both of these are medically considered incurable but manageable with diet and medication.

My friend had been prayed over by the elders of church. She has begged God for healing, asked for us to intercede when she could not pray, tried strict diets, and nothing was giving her the relief she needed to be a good wife and mother.

She began praying with a few people from our church again specifically for healing.  Finally one day God told her he would heal her. As simple as that sounds it’s not. There was lots of work on her part. And lots of us praying for it to happen.

But friends let me tell you again. Miracles happen.
SHE IS HEALED.
I am not talking her symptoms are manageable, I am talking healed.

If you read about celiacs above you know eating gluten is life stopping at times.  She would have such joint pain that she could not walk and would need to be carried.

And since The Lord has healed her i have had the pleasure to witness her eat almost a whole gluten filled pizza faster than anyone, and then enjoying gluten covered dessert right after. That’s a miracle
Each time I see her walking around on cool afternoons with no socks, on cold wood floors and not having white toes I am reminded of God’s power.

She used to joke that if God healed her she would start running. With the lack of circulation in her hands and feet on top of the intense joint pain, her physical activity was limited. Again, God is healer, awesome in power

Healed by GOD

That’s my friend, my best friend running a race. Surrounded by her friends and family. All very emotional after witnessing the healing power of our God.

with her husband!

besties

Not only did she participate in the 5k. She ran the whole thing, with good time I might add.

You see friends God is bigger than science, he does not have limitations, nor is he restricted by human boundaries.  He performs BEYOND our imaginations

Ephesians 3:20
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, “

I am sharing this miracle with you for a few reasons.
#1 she is my  bestie
#2 I want you to have hope
#3 God calls us to share his miracles with others

Psalm 9:1-2
“I will praise you Lord, with all my heart. I will tell ALL THE MIRACLES YOU HAVE DONE. I will be happy because of you; God most High, I will sing proses to your name.”

Praise be to God.  Join me in rejoicing over Gods miraculous healing. lets worship him together.

Water you turned into wine, opened the eyes of the blind there’s no one like you, none like You!
Into the darkness you shine out of the ashes we rise there’s no one like you none like You!
Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

  1. Amazing post! It’s great to hear these kinds of stories and know that a higher power is at work. So many times we hear about diseases cured by doctors but never stop to think that maybe it was god who gave these doctors the power and ability to find these cures.

    Many well wishes to your friend!

  2. This is awesome! Thank you for sharing.

    Recently my son had a huge mole. We took him to the doctor and she was very worried, he was going to be having testing done at Children’s dermatology. But we got to praying and it’s gone now.
    I know Jesus healed my lil guy.
