Vanessa’s Testimony of Healing
Testimony from Vanessa, written on December 18, 2018 and shared from the pulpit:
Several weeks ago, I started to experience very strong pain in one area of my upper back. As the days went on, the pain extended to the other side of my back and into my shoulders. By last week, the pain was radiating through my entire back, shoulders and neck so that even the pressure of my clothing was hurting it. I was getting concerned!
However, even before the back pain started, the Lord had been speaking to me about the importance and rightful place of testimony. So on Sunday morning (Dec. 16), when I heard Evelyn’s wonderful testimony of healing, I decided to claim the healing contained in that word for my own. I was on my way up to the altar to pray as soon as the invitation was given!
After worshiping and praying at the altar, my back was feeling a little better, but there wasn’t an instant healing. Instead, as the day went on, the pain dissipated more and more until I knew I was healed. No more pain! Thank you, Jesus!
On Sunday night, I decided to attend the healing service just to make sure I was all done (!) and after the service the Lord pieced a couple of verses together in a way that was powerful to me.
In the book of John, Jesus says, “In this world YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Then in Revelation, it talks about the accuser being overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY.
I felt like Jesus was telling me that every time I face trouble, that the testimony of God’s goodness is my first and most powerful weapon. Thanks God for healing my back and for all the things you want to do through this and future testimonies.
