As believer’s, it’s time we take our rightful position and enforce the victory that Jesus has already won for us! We need draw a line in the sand and dare the enemy to cross it!
In my last post, “A Story of Faith and Healing“, I shared some of the story of my daughter being healed of epilepsy. I can remember sitting in the room listening to the Doctor as he gave us a grim outlook for Ashley.
Thankfully, I was learning the truth of the gospel and was already believing for her healing. The doctor was speaking, but my focus was on our victory through Jesus! It was as if there was a recording playing in my head.
I was hearing “By His stripes we are healed”, “He sent His word and healed them”, “Believer’s will lay hands on the sick and they will recover”, etc…
It’s time to stop telling God how big our problems are; instead start telling our problems how big our God is!
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue (NKJV)
I started studying the Bible and searching out the miracles of Jesus, especially healing miracles. I read them over and over until I the miraculous became more and more possible. I spent time speaking the word of God over Ashley…
“Ashley will live and not die and she will proclaim the works of the Lord.” “God has not given Ashley a spirit of fear, but of love and of power and of a sound a mind.”
The Word was going in me and my faith for the miraculous was growing. I knew that according to the Bible, faith is expressed by the spoken word and by taking action, so that’s exactly what I did.
While all this was happening, there were several believer’s that I confided in about healing, but they didn’t believe she could be healed. I was told I couldn’t believe God to heal her. It seemed that discouragement was everywhere. Maybe you’re in the same place I was at that time. Please, don’t give up!
Please hear me… If you’re born again, you’ve already experienced the greatest miracle anyone can ever have happen to them. It’s greater than any healing or miraculous provision. When you were born again, the very life and nature of God came to live in you!
This is what I call a DNA transplant! You became bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh. My good friend, Pastor Buzzy Sutherlin would say, the person on the inside of you is a hotshot!!
Ephesians 5:30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. (NKJV)
When Jesus walked the face of the earth he went around doing good and healing all that were oppressed. That’s the mission of every believer…including you and me! You may not know it, but we’ve all been sent by God. Check out this prayer that Jesus prayed for us.
John 17:18 As thou has sent me into the world, even so have I sent them into the world. (NKJV)
I want to encourage everyone to stand up against whatever problem is coming against you. You don’t have to accept it as your lot in life. Victory is your birthright, don’t settle for anything less.
Here’s another video that was taken in 2013 when we were asked to share Ashley’s testimony at our Church in Tulsa. My prayer is that it will encourage you to walk by faith and not by sight.
