I want to share a testimony of a girl we prayed for in Bethel Church’s healing services. This really had an impact on me! The girl was in her late teens and had never been to the healing services before. She seemed nervous, and you could see the sadness on her face. She started to explain that for the last five years she’d had cysts all over her spine and was in excruciating pain. She couldn’t touch her toes, lie down, or bend side to side without pain. Her spine hadn’t formed properly as a child. She actually had me feel some of the cysts on her back, as they were protruding through her skin. We started to pray and symbolically pretended to “pop” the cysts on her spine in faith.
Then something happened that still brings me to tears. God’s love showed up in an astounding way. I had never felt His love for someone so strongly or His goodness so tangible! I started thinking, Of course You’ll do this, Papa. You’re so much more eager to show up. You want this even more than I do!
I literally watched this girl completely change. She started jumping up and down saying, “I can’t feel any pain! The pain is gone!” She was laughing and crying. We were all laughing and crying! She started to touch her toes, saying, “I couldn’t do this before!”
She then said, “I have never been so happy in my life! My heart is healed!”
We found out later that she had been depressed when she had arrived. I felt as if I was looking at a different girl. She lay down laughing because she had no pain!
She felt her back for the cysts and said, “It’s flat!” She got me to touch the place I had touched before, and I couldn’t feel anything.
What amazed me the most was her saying through her tears, “I didn’t even believe.”
I wasn’t quite sure what she meant, and then found out this girl didn’t even believe in God! I was thinking, This is You, God! You’re so eager!
This girl didn’t have much faith-she didn’t even believe in God. But the love of God is so much greater than our unbelief. He meets us where we are. I love Him!!
