Only Believe!


1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 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.

Acts 5:16 (NKJV) Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were ALL healed.

As I'm currently suffering from extreme pain... I'm well aware of God's promises and what my body is telling me is not the final say!


Years ago when I was praying for healing of a large cyst on my uterus, my doctor wanted to perform emergency surgery. I asked him to give me one month. The pain was extreme and it had grown to grapefruit size so quickly that he said there was no way I'd ever make it that long. He was right about one thing, each day the pain increased.

I learned a lot that month. I was determined to receive my healing by faith. My prayer started out in the usual manner, "God! I need a miracle! Please heal me!" His response? "I already did." By the third time He gave me this same answer, I became frustrated and I said, "I know Lord, by Christs stripes I'm healed, but the truth is, I'm still in pain!" He asked me a question that I will never forget, "What is truth? Is it what the doctor has told you? Is it what your body is telling you, or is it what my Word says?" "I created you and I wrote the book! The only truth you'll ever know comes from there!" He continued to tell me that He had already provided everything for my healing... Now it was up to me... then I remembered: Matthew 10:1 (NKJV) And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.


The light bulb went off! He had given ME all power and authority over every sickness and disease! It was now up to me to take that authority! I remembered the Children of Israel, they had a magnificent promise of an incredible land filled with milk and honey. I'm sure they pictured a beautiful and peaceful setting, yet as they stood before their promise land, it was occupied by the enemy! It was theirs, but they first had to conquer it!


As I began to do battle and stand on God's Word in claiming what belonged to me, I gave Him honor and praise as I decreed the healing in my body, even before it was ever manifested... faith began to take root. I was then able to testify of my healing while still in pain. I had absolutely no doubt that what God had promised, He would do!


The night before my appointment my pain was intolerable, but still I knew I was healed and I refused to believe the lies of the enemy. The next day at my appointment the doctor asked me what I had done. I said, "prayed!" He continued to say, "Martine, you don't understand, not only is the cyst gone, but this isn't even the same uterus I examined a month ago. It was filled with scar tissue from past surgeries... this is a brand new uterus!


There's no limit to what God can do if we'll only believe! So if you see me hobbled over in pain... take a picture for a keepsake because the manifestation of my healing is about to take place! And I will once again testify of the goodness of God!!


Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) 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.
