Today’s post supports the fact that God is indeed a healer and a waymaker. Although the Saints of God may experience many trials and tribulations, God certainly delivers us from them all. He loves us and knows what it takes to help us draw closer to Him. This testimony is that of a 45-year-old mother and wife. It presents her experiences with God’s mighty power. Let’s read her testimony as she gives glory and honor to the God of her salvation.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all (Psalm 34:19).
By Sis. D. S.
I know for myself that God is a healer. He healed my body in 2020 when I had Covid-19. Then he healed when I had a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack or mini-stroke) in March 2021. But in July 2021, He manifested Himself in the greatest way.
I had a stroke that caught me totally off guard. I was 45 years old when I had the stroke, and I did not realize that I was too young for such a stroke. Others told me that I didn’t look right with a walker, and I didn’t sound right with slurred speech. But God made it right. It took me two months to heal from the stroke. I was determined to get back to where I was. I began to lean on the scriptures, Is. 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24, which declare that we are healed by the stripes Christ endured.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1Peter 2:24
My faith began to grow, and in my mind’s eye, I saw myself back at work, doing what God called me to do.
I called my sister one Saturday night and asked her, “Can I hang with you?” She said, “Yes,” and we went to church. That night the Spirit of God was very high in the service, and the preacher said, “The water is troubled.” I knew that God would heal me that night with His healing power. I went to the altar on my walker when the altar call was made. But when I got there, the power of God hit me, and I ran around the church. That night I was delivered from that walker, and I have been walking without it since then.
And then, on August 18, 2021, I was in a car wreck. We were hit on the side of the car where I was the passenger. I still had speech problems from the stroke, but I was more determined than ever to get better after the wreck. I started to read more and also enrolled with a Speech Therapist. I read the Word of God to get closer to Him and to speak better. My speech is normal today.
In the midst of these trials, God showed Himself to be my provider. I had one medicine that was too high, but he blessed me with an unexpected $700.00 in my bank account on that following Monday. Then I began to talk to God because I wanted to help my husband with the bills. God spoke to me and told me to look at my bank account, and there I found an unexpected $1600.00. Not only that, while I was off work for two months because of the stroke, I received a call from my job. They said that they had not been paying me enough money. I received a raise that was retroactive to when I started my job. I am now back at work and doing fine.
I thank God for healing me and making a way out of no way. It is my prayer that anyone who reads this testimony is blessed. God is a miracle worker, and He is my all-in-all.
What a great blessing God was to my sister. Though she experienced much during these two months, God wrought a mighty work in her life. She evokes praise to our God as she gives her powerful testimony, and I saw her with my own eyes as she ran from the altar through the church without her walker. She is a Nurse’s Assistant and works with me on the Nurse’s Guild at our church, so I know her testimony to be very strong and powerful. Glory and honor to our God who healeth all of our diseases. If you need healing, lean on the Scriptures. God is no respecter of persons. If He did it for Sis. D.S., He’ll do it for you.
