Healing Rooms Ministries – Spokane
Week of December 3-6, 2008
“THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him--not for my earning it, but] for His name's sake. Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over. Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my
days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.” (Psalm 23 Amplified) I have a book that focuses on how to deal with stresses in your life. The first chapter focused on this Psalm and suggested meditating on it daily. Take time, during this busy season, and enter into Psalm 23.
The following is one of our longer testimonies – but I know there is someone reading this, who needs to hear every word. Michell did a beautiful job in putting her testimony on paper. She shares much more than just being healed form plantars fasciitis. Be encouraged.
NO MORE PAIN FROM PLANTARS FASCITIS
Michelle writes: “A five year struggle with plantars fasciitis had resulted in a more severe case of this injury to where two months ago it finally gave way. The pain of it felt like I was stepping on a nail in my heel. When that happened it hurt so bad I fell over and broke my same foot. I hit my left arm on a metal chair and popped my neck so hard it blurred my vision for a second. I thought, WOW, that felt like what had happened to my neck ten years ago in a work injury. Maybe it just popped back in, I thought. All I really knew at that time was I had really hurt myself. But, I was working (hair-dresser) and I had one client in the restroom and one client coming in to get a haircut. I sat down before they both came in the room. When they did enter they could tell
something was wrong. I told them that I thought I had really hurt myself. I said, I think I stepped on a tack. So here are my two loyal, loving clients looking on the floor for this ‘stupid tack’ I thought I had stepped on. The only thing we could find was a piece of the ‘popcorn’ ceiling. I couldn’t believe it. There was no way that had caused all this pain! So, because I’m a person who has a high tolerance for pain I had forgotten about the fall and just explained it as stepping on a tack. I worked the following weeks by stepping only on the ball of my right foot because I didn’t want to step on my heel and feel that tack again. When I first told my husband I neglected to tell him I fell because at that time I truly had forgotten. Nothing else hurt but the constant heel pain
every time I took a step. We figured it was just bruised. This happened on Oct 3rd, 2008. On Oct. 5th I went to the Davenport Hotel to an annual Hair Show. On the 6th I took a 3 mile field trip with my daughter. The reason I include this is, as I look back, because of the kind of fall I took there should have been no way I could have endured all of that. My diagnosis started to reveal itself (starting on Nov. 3rd) when I just couldn’t explain what was wrong, but I knew I couldn’t stand how I felt anymore. I had my sister drop me off at the Urgent Care and all I could say to the doctor was: I think I have a bone spur. Can you please x-ray my foot? As it turns out I broke my foot when I fell and had been putting all of my weight on it for the last four weeks. This caused a flare
up of Morton’s Neroma in two nerves in the same foot. I had a very bad case of tendonitis in my left arm due to being on and off crutches for four weeks, but when the inflammation of that was under control a new pain began. This pain was in my arm and went higher into my shoulder. Through several doctor’s appointments, physical therapy appointments, cortisone shots, ultra-sound therapy, stimulant therapy and two hours of home physical therapy a day, it was topped off with a MRI of my neck. All of the pain in my arm and shoulder showed it was pain from my neck. The MRI was on Nov. 26th. It is now Dec. 3rd and I am sitting in the Bookstore at the Healing Rooms writing about what just has happened.
How can I even explain, other than I HAVE BEEN HEALED! I felt the blood of Christ come over me 3/4ths of the way through my prayer session. Not knowing I was healed until the end I said, I think I can walk. Oh, I forgot to mention that I had been in a wheelchair-scooter for a month, not being able to walk fully. One week prior to today I took my first three steps, then 4, 8, 10 up to about 20 steps. But I did this only a couple of times and at only one time a day on different days. I had a splint on my left arm and on occasion it was in a sling. Because of the nerve pain it was few and far between it. And, my neck – oh, let me tell you – my neck was always uncomfortable.
So, getting back to the awesome news of being healed. I told my prayer team that I thought I could walk. I got up and I said, this is the real test because I had walked a little bit this morning and I knew how it felt. I walked back and forth, back and forth – not wanting to make anything up about what I was experiencing. I wanted to be sure. I continued. Then I stopped, stood straight up and looked up, then I looked at all three of the ladies that had just prayed for me, and I said to them: I am not questioning my faith or my God, but I’m going to try it again because I want Him to confirm that I am healed. Praise God!!!! Then I started jumping up and down and screaming: oh my, oh my, oh my! I ran over and gave each of the ladies a huge hug. In closing I just want to
say: never, ever, ever, stop believing in miracles. If they say it can’t happen—it can. Never, ever sign off on any package that is not delivered from our Heavenly Father. If you believe—believe with your whole heart. Even if what you believe may not come until the last of your breath here on earth, always know God promises to provide. He hears your prayers and you may think at times that He isn’t listening because you haven’t received an answer. Well, that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be answered. I believe it’s because He has something better in store for you. So step aside. Let God lead you. Just wait for the big shining light He has on your path so He can lead you where He wants you to go! God bless you.”
VICTORY OVER FEAR AND CRAVINGS
Bryan testifies: “I was experiencing cravings for alcohol and I was going to go and buy some beer. The prayer team directed me to pray against the spirit of addiction. The cravings left immediately. Since then they have come back, but I’ve been able to rebuke the spirit of addiction when it tries to manifest itself. I have the authority. I’ve prayed against the spirit of affliction in my daughter and she has received relief from symptoms, partially and temporarily, but I believe God is building our (my) faith together.” Praise the Lord!
PAIN AND SHAKING DIMINISH
Dennis shares: “I had three bulging discs in my back and shaking in my hands. Well, after receiving prayer I can now carry a full cup of coffee in each hand without spilling. Before prayer I could never have done that. My back pain is diminishing – on a pain scale it is has gone from a 9 to a 4. I know God isn’t finished.” Glory to God!
Each one of us must understand how to receive healing and keep it. When we understand God’s word on healing and act upon it, it brings forth a manifestation of healing in our physical bodies. Our goal is to receive the manifestation of healing and to give our Heavenly Father the glory for what Jesus has done for us.
