-Mark 16:17-30 NIV
My goodness! I just can't figure out what is going on. I have never known so many people to be having health issues in my life! And all are Christians. My sister just told me that they think her husband has Lupus. My best friend from college's son is having seizures, my mom's best friend has a skin disease that has now spread to cover her whole body, a young lady from my church in NC has stage four cancer, my grandfather's disease... and I could go on but I don't want to depress you!
I just don't know what to make of the situation... I believe in miracles, have seen them with my own eyes. I KNOW that God has the power to heal. I haven't seen a miracle in a long time though, and I know many Christians are feeling frustrated at the lack of miraculous healing that we see. I know that even the unsaved are looking at the charasmatic beleivers and wondering about where those "signs and wonders" are. God has given us wonderful medical science, for which I am so grateful, but still, I long to see Him do the miraculous in my friends' and families lives.
I am praying for God's Spirit to break through in a supernatural way that none can question. In each of the situations above, the doctors are saying that there is no cure, only treatment for the symptoms. I am asking for God to do a miracle for which ONLY HE CAN GET THE GLORY. I believe that when these things begin to happen, the world will look at us in wonder asking "Where is this power coming from?" And we will say, "It is the power of GOD, We are His children, called by His name, and you can be too!!!"
I don't know if God is allowing us to face these hardships to increase our faith and our desperation for Him, or if the enemy is just trying really hard to steal our hope, but either way, I am on my face before God asking Him to remember His children. Maybe this is the time that American Christians will humble themselves and begin to depend more on God and less on man! If you are a Christian, please join with me in asking God to begin to bring more of His supernatural healing to America.
