The Ultimate Healing
Evangelist Dorinda Hicks
 
As I sit down to write to you today
It is so much deep down in my soul that I desire to say
God is an awesome God no matter what you think
Because of Him I continue to float, I do not have to sink
Back into my old ways or thoughts
My sins have been paid for and bought
By my LORD and Savior
Who continues to give me favor
Toward things I do not deserve
There is nothing in my past I have done that would make me think any of this is earned
The LORD'S healing power has touched me
His touch has delivered me, restored me and set me totally free
 
God is sovereign, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent.  He is all knowing and truly here to supply all of our needs.  I can not imagine living life without God.  There was a time in my life when I thought I had so much control over many things in my life.  I really thought I was running things and I thought I was doing a pretty good job.  I looked up one day and my life was a mess.  That was because God gives us a free will and we have a choice and I made some pretty terrible choices back in the day.  But I thank God today for deliverance and healing.   I thought at one time I woke up because I wanted to.  Today, I know I wake up because God touches me each morning and wakes me up.  It is not the alarm clock.  It is not a shout from your spouse or your children.  It is God who touches us.  Someone went to bed last night and did not get up today.  God knows the number of hairs on our head.  He knows the day we shall enter this world and He knows the date we shall depart from this world.  Many of us have many differences  and all of us are unique, but there is one thing that we all have in common.  It does not matter what color you are, what nationality you are, it does not matter whether  you are a female or male, it does not matter whether you are rich or poor.  It does not matter where you live, in the projects or in a mansion.  We all have to one day meet our maker. Each and every one of us will have that experience. The question is will you meet Him on your way to heaven or hell?
 
When I wrote last week, I asked that you pray for my girlfriend.  Today, we celebrated the life of my girlfriend, Sharlon Reed-Davis.  She went home to be with the LORD.  She passed on the operating table last Friday.  This is one trip that we all have to take.  She knew the LORD.  II bless God for putting her on my heart that morning.  I was able to talk to her before she went to the hospital.  She had such a joy and was full of peace that morning.  She and I talked about God and healing.  She received the Ultimate Healing.  Praise God!  I praise God for allowing me to share the journey of life with her.  I do desire to see her again, so I know what I got to do.  I praise God for allowing us to be friends.  She was a good wife, mother, and friend to many.  I have nothing but good memories of her.  She preached her own funeral.  She touched many lives.  In the past 1 1/2 years, we watched her life change in front of our eyes.  She had a very intimate relationship with God.  She was truly a witness of the goodness of God.  As she read and studied the Word, she made major changes in her life.  She became very faithful. 
 
Her passing was an eye awakening experience for me.  It made me first see how precious every moment of life is.  I told her that morning that I would be out to see her tomorrow.  Tomorrow came but she was not in my tomorrow!  Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  It showed me that we should live each day  as if it was our last day.  We do not know the day nor the hour that our God will call us home.  Are you ready?  I began to ask God to show me anyone I had a problem with.  Most of the time we know, but there are times that others are offended by us and you may not know you offended them.  We should not want to be the reason anybody stumbles.  I had a good relationship with her, but it made me check myself.  It made me put the mirror in my face and ask God to show me ..me.  Show me what is not like Him and what needs to go (die) in my life.
 
I challenge you today, to check yourself.  If you have a problem with ANYONE, fix that thing.
No matter who it is, or no matter what happened get it right.  II have talked to people that have been having problems with family members for years and sometimes we can not even put our finger on what it was that started all the mess. The devil has destroyed so many relationships, and torn up families and it is time out for that nonsense.  Put aside pride or anything else that would hinder you from resolving old hurts and pains.  I think we take one another for granted and we so often think I will deal with it tomorrow, but once again, tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  I lost a very good friend on July 19 (Carrie Mann)  and I lost this friend on July 31.  I will miss both of them dearly but they have crossed over.  They are both with the great physician.  They did everything they were suppose to do here on this earth and they have went on to Glory!  I just want to assure all of you, regardless of what you are facing today, or no matter what you have to deal with tomorrow, know that you do not have to face it alone.  Know that God does not make any mistakes and He can do anything but fail.  It blesses my heart to know that Sharlon and Carrie both received the Ultimate Healing
 

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you;  I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  Ezekiel 36:26 (NIV)

I acknowledge my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity.  I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"...and you forgive the guilt of my sin.  Psalm 32:5 (NIV)
