Faith In God Works!
Mat 21:21-22 KJV Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. (22) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Several years ago I fell off of some faulty gym equipment causing extensive damage to my right rotator cup. The fall left my arm locked in the downward position. I could only move it a couple of inches.
After the doctor examined the shoulder he concluded that I needed surgery to correct the damage and restore the rotator cup to its proper functions. I decided to not have the surgery and correct the problem faith in God, prayer and therapy. With a smile the doctor told me that nothing would correct my rotator cup except surgery. What he was really saying was God couldn’t do it, prayer couldn’t and my faith in God couldn’t. I smiled back with respect for his position and said I would trust my way.
While I was talking to the doctor the Holy Spirit in me said “with God all things are possible!” then I heard him say “all things are possible to him that believes!” Armed with sword of the Spirit which is the TRUTH and faith in the TRUTH I started my journey to recovery.
My recipe for deliverance was praying in the Spirit, speaking the TRUTH to that rotator cup, meditating on the TRUTH, rejoicing in the TRUTH and therapy 3 times a week.
Well, the first week I saw no improvement but we walk by faith. The second week I saw very little improvement but we still walk by faith even when the devil is screaming it is not working. This is when you stay with the TRUTH and not be move by the devil’s lies.
TRUTH will always change facts. Sometimes it does it instantly and sometimes it takes a while. These are the times that your faith can grow stronger if you stay with the TRUTH and not give up.
Well the TRUTH won over the facts again and by the third month I was back at the gym lifting weights and had full use of that rotator cuff. No surgery! No scars! Today both rotator cuffs are stronger that before.
When I went back to the doctor for a final checkup on that rotator cuffs he smiled and said “I didn’t believe you could do it but you did!” Well, you know I had help: My help came from THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. We call Him the LORD JESUS CHRIST!! That’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Faith In God Works!!
