I’m claiming it right now as I write half of this two-part blog. I’m claiming healing, miracles, restoration, and I come out better than I even started.
You see, God is a way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, and our light in the darkness. That’s just who He is and He can’t go against himself.
Recently, I scheduled a consultation with a functional medicine practitioner because I was hopeless on getting answers for my raging physical and mental symptoms. It was $800 just for the consultation, then it was going to be upwards of $7,000 for the testing and treatment plan. (I wouldn’t normally write a blog like this but I’m feeling led to. Whatever God says, goes.) I spoke with a christian friend about how I didn’t feel right spending that kind of money, and didn’t expect it to be that steep. I have been working on letting the peace of God lead me wherever I go and this didn’t feel peaceful. This friend had been telling me all along that I should go to the True Physician but I guess my faith wasn’t strong enough yet.
After looking at my last worldly option with a price that high, I was kind of brought to the fork in the road: choosing God or worldly doctors. So I chose the Lord to perform my miracle from head-to-toe, inside and out. The minute I chose to rely on the Lord and begin to pray and have faith for my healing, the peace began to overflow. This isn’t normal Hannah behavior, ya’ll.
My faith has always been very weak in the healing department, and even less so for myself. So, if we are weak in one area of our lives, we are affected in all areas. God has already shown me little bits of what’s to come.
You see, it isn’t an option of IF God will heal us, it’s a matter of WHEN. When He died on that rugged cross 2000+ years ago, the miracles were already performed. Healing already took place, hope would always be the best option, and begging God for something was no longer needed. We wonder why some people get healed and others don’t but since God is no favor of persons, I believe it comes down to a matter of faith. We can know the Word, we can believe in the Lord, we can believe He will even heal others.
But when it comes down to us personally, we have to believe just as hard, if not even more. We can have our biggest Christian influences pray for us, but at some point we have to grab the faith for ourselves and stand FIRM on the Word and His promises. God died for YOU. God accomplished all that would ever need to be done. He healed anything that would ever need healing. He forgave all that would ever need forgiven.
At the women’s conference I went to a couple weekends ago, one of the speakers said, “God wants to heal you even more than you want to be healed,” and that really resonated with me. WOW. This goes for anyone.
God is truly no favor of persons. This means that what He has done for someone else, He has already done for you. The devil isn’t going to fight or torment someone who is just out there ‘living their best life’ avoiding the Kingdom’s works. The devil is going to fight the hardest with someone who is doing, or will be doing, amazing things for the Lord.
So I guess what I’m here to tell you today is that I’m writing this blog in faith of what’s to come of my healing (and yours, too!). I’m writing this to prove I’m not giving up on it and I’m trusting God to come through. He can do more than any worldly person ever can, AND IT’S FREE YA’LL. I’m already seeing it come to fruition and it’s been a week since I decided to give it to God and expect the most from Him.
The devil is swinging hard, but I’m fighting Him with the Word that never fails or comes back void. The devil can seem relentless, but oh when that breakthrough comes, how every single struggle will be worth it.
There is nothing greater than the blood of Jesus. It washes over every sin, sickness, shame, past hurt, future sin, unbelief, and any tricks the devil thinks he has up his sleeve.
Don’t give up, guys. Don’t let the devil trick you into backing down. Keep treading through the storm and I’ll be here to tell you that on the other side there is a better life than you could ever imagine!!!! Get ready for part 2, because it’s gonna be GOOD! The Lord is on the move and I pray with all my heart that you will move forward with us. Yes, YOU!!!!
