"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.

I printed every article that is on the website (The Lord, Your Healer; Don’t 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 doesn’t happen immediately, but gradually instead. So, I begin to meditate and focus on healing scriptures such as:

Isaiah 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 healed."

Galatians 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."

Mark 11:23-24 - "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

Psalm 107:20 - "He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions."

Exodus 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."

Proverbs 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 God’s Word. He said that His Word will never return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11) AND that He’s 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!
