"Day of Redemption"
Approximately 8 months ago I was afflicted with an unusual infirmity (numbness in my shoulder, pain in my joints and breast pain) within my body. Each day the pain would get worse. One day, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, I found this website, Abiding In The Healing Word. It was at a point in my life where I was desperate for help, much like the woman in the Bible with the issue of blood that's recorded in Matthew chapter Nine.
Because of my Christian walk and knowledge of the Word, I knew I was already healed because the Word of Gods says I am. Therefore, I knew I was under a spiritual attack and it was time for me to get serious and go into spiritual warfare.
printed every article that is on the website (The Lord, Your Healer; Dont
Stop Swinging the Hammer; Miracle In Your Mouth; Scriptural Foundation
For Healing; The Healing Scriptures, to name a few). The first thing that
I got into my spirit was 1 Peter 2:24 that states; "Who Himself bore
our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might
live for righteousness by whose stripes you were healed."
This scripture reminded me that my healing was in the past tense, signifying that it is has already been accomplished! One scripture believed, received and acted upon will cause His glory (my healing) to manifest.
In the articles, I read that healing was a process and sometimes it doesnt happen immediately, but gradually instead. So, I begin to meditate and focus on healing scriptures such as:
53:4-5 - "Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He
was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are
3:13-14 - "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having
become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who
hangs on a tree"), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon
the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the
Spirit through faith."
107:20 - "He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from
15:26 - "If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and
do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all
His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought
on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you."
4:20-23 - " My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear
to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in
the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them,
and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence,
for out of it spring the issues of life."
In Romans 10:17 the Word tells us that - "Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God." I took the Word literally and began to quote these scriptures out loud every day, sometimes 3-5 times daily. It was just like taking the recommended dosage of medicine, but instead, I took the Word of God. I made a conscious decision, I made up my mind and made a commitment based on Psalm 118:17, that I will live and not die and declare the works of the Lord. Every day on my lunch break, instead of running errands, I would sit in my car and get quiet and listen to the Lord and let Him minister and encourage me.
Each day I would study and meditate and SPEAK the Word until it (The Word) became apart of me. Like it says in John 1:14 the word became flesh - the Word became a reality to me. I took a strong stand of authority and commanded the spirit of infirmity that was in my body to leave in Jesus Name and declared that it had no legal right to be there. I began to lay hold of the promises of Gods Word. He said that His Word will never return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11) AND that Hes active and alert watching over his Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12).
His Word was returned to Him when I took hold of it personally and spoke it out. One thing that kept me going was the Scripture found in Jeremiah 23:29 that says the Word of God is like a fire and a like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces. Even though the problem seemed to get worse, I stayed with it, as I knew the Word was breaking the sickness in my body into pieces.
January 23, 2007 was the day I wrote down on my calendar (MY DEVINE HEALING MANIFESTED) and I took communion. Praise God, my healing manifested on that day.
Thank you Pastor Dan for making the articles and healing scriptures available at a time when I needed them the most!
