My Miracle Testimony
Ever since mid-April I have been having extreme back pain. Some days were worse than others, but as of two weekends ago, I was miserable. The fact that I sit at a computer all day doesn’t help anything. It hurt to sit. It hurt to stand. It hurt to eat. To laugh. To cough. To lean over. You name it and it hurt.
While we were at our church’s Sunday night service (the pain was at the highest it had been on this particular day) a word of knowledge was given for anyone with back pain to stand up. So I did and I received prayer. Instantly the back pain was gone. I have watched and heard many people at church get prayed over and healed, but had never experienced any physical healing miracles myself. It just left me in awe that in an instant all pain was removed. It’s been almost 2 weeks since then and I’m 100% better. There is no pain. For anyone who has ever had physical pain, they will realize how debilitating it is and how much of a difference it makes to go through the day pain-free. Praise Jesus!
I don’t know why sometimes Jesus chooses to do a miracle in an instant, sometimes he chooses to heal over days, weeks, or years and sometimes He chooses not to heal at all, but I do know this – He performed a miracle on my back. There was and is no other explanation besides a miracle from Him.
“The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10). Miracles in your life demonstrate the nature of God. Each story told of breakthrough carries the potential to release the power of Jesus into a hopeless situation. When we share what God has done, it causes faith to explode as the testimony prophecies His desire to do the miracle again!” – Bill Johnson
How powerful is that? So, I’m sharing this to create an environment for God to repeat the same miracle. I want to release the same testimony to others who are experiencing back pain and to remind us all that even if we haven’t gotten the healing that we are waiting and praying for, don’t give up. Trust me, we have been asking for prayer for children for 2.5 years now. I can’t even count the amount of times we have received prayer for children. Hundreds. I wish He would have brought us babies instead of Him healing my back, but that is not the point. He is a God who heals. He did it with my blood levels, he did it with my back, and we continue to trust that He is going to heal again and bring us our babies. Sometimes His timing and healing is not when we ask for it (babies) and sometimes it’s when we least expect it (my back), but either way – He is a God who heals and performs miracles. If you haven’t received yours yet – keep on praying and keep on believing!
