THE GOLDEN RULE

Austria

Simon had been experiencing high fever for two days that an over the counter medicine wasn’t helping. There were no other symptoms like running nose, dizziness or cold chills to make him think it was the flu. So, he decided to go see the doctor.

The doctor was puzzled to discover that there were no other symptoms. Fever is usually a symptom of the root of a bigger issue, so the doctor ran a few tests. All tests were normal.

On the way home from the doctors office, Simon began to pray, “Lord, why am I suffering from such high fever?” The Lord reminded him of the words he had been speaking when he would get angry. . .

  • When someone cuts you off in traffic, you say, “That just burns me up!”
  • If your wife nags you or your boss harps on you about something, you say, “That just burns me up!”

Simon thought to himself, “Could this really be the cause of the fever? Surely not!” Then he heard the Lord say, “Yes, it is. You need to break the power of these words you’ve spoke over your body.”

The doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong and his mother’s extensive internet search didn’t yield any results, so Simon decided to trust God. He prayed out loud, “Lord, forgive me for speaking death over my body, instead of speaking life. In Jesus Name, I break the power of these words over my life. I invite your Word and truth to govern my speech and my body.”

As soon as he said, “Amen,” he physically began to feel the fever decrease. When he arrived at home and took his temperature, it was true. God had healed him and the fever was gone.

Wild, huh? Who knew that the words we speak has so much power in them. Let’s look at what the Word of God says about the power of our words…..

  • “So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.” James 3:5
  • “Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach; the right words on a person’s lips bring satisfaction. Those who love to talk will experience the consequences, for the tongue can kill or nourish life.” Proverbs 18:20-21
  • “No weapon formed against YOU shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD.” Isaiah 54:7


Let’s not forget the golden rule our parents used to tell us as kids and we swore we would never say as an adult, “If you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything all.”

THE WITCHDOCTORS LOSS

The Philippines

“We can’t help her. She is demon possessed. You can take her home now,” the doctor’s proclaimed. On the way home, in hopes to find help for their nanny, the young Filipino couple took 18 year old, Jasmine, by the Catholic church for the priest to pray over her. As they stood before the priest, the demon took control of Jasmine’s body and said out loud to the priest, “You are a liar!”

The next day is when we received the call requesting help to pray for Jasmine. Myself and a friend walked to the employer’s house where Jasmine was staying only a mile away. Jasmine’s father had just arrived from a remote village to take her back home, so we spent some time chatting with him before entering the house.

ENDcyst

Rwanda

Barely 15 years old, her lack of strength was evident as she struggled to sit up in the bed and adjust her hospital garment.  Fear rang loud in Eshe’s voice as she shared about her scheduled surgery the next day to remove a cyst from her ovary.

With her mother at her bedside, I asked if it would be okay for us to pray for her. She agreed.

“On a scale of one to ten. (one – little pain and ten – severe pain), Where is your pain level?,” I asked.   Eshe squinted as she responded, “It’s a nine.”

Myself and a few friends laid hands on Eshe and prayed that the cyst would disappear and that all pain would go in Jesus Name.  After we prayed, she expressed that she could feel the presence of God all over her body in a tangible way.

When I asked her again to rate the pain, she said with amazement in her eyes, “It’s ZERO!”

Praise God!!! I watched as both she and her mother cried tears of joy together.

Three days later I received a call from Eshe’s mother. She had insisted that the doctor perform additional tests before the surgery the following day because she believed God had healed her daughter. Sure enough, Eshe was released from the hospital with no cyst and no surgery.

Thank you, Jesus!!

12

Guatemala

His weathered hat matched his sun scorched skin, as he approached me for prayer. “I have back pain, severe knee pain, and thyroid problems,” he explained. He was a man of few words, but I could tell by the look on his face that he came expecting God to heal him.

So, I asked, “On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 = little pain, 10 = extreme pain), where does your pain rate?”  “Nine,” he said.

My friend, our interpreter, and I prayed together that God would permeate his body with His healing power. After a minute or so, he shared that the pain level had decreased, but it still remained.

I realized that one of his legs looked shorter than the other.  When I inquired, he said, “I’ve had 12 surgeries on my left leg.  In the process they have removed some of my bones, which makes one leg shorter than the other.”

With his permission, I asked that he sit down in a chair and measured his legs to find indeed his left leg was shorter than his right leg.  Together we prayed again that all pain would leave his back & knee and that the shorter leg would grow out.  Soon his reserved manner turned to clapping and screaming in excitement as he felt his leg growing out to its normal length. 

As my interpreter and new friend rubbed their eyes to ensure they were seeing this happen before their eyes. The left leg grew out to match the length of his right leg.  Once I measured them again to ensure the legs were the same length, I returned his legs to the floor. Immediately he got up and walked around with no more pain in any of his body.

What the doctor’s tried to fix 12 times, God healed in less than 12 minutes.

Thank you, Jesus!
