Ihad a life-threatening sesame allergy and carried an EpiPen.
One Sunday at Bridgeway Church in Denver, Colorado, the children shared a word of knowledge that God wanted to heal someone with an EpiPen. I responded and went to receive prayer from the children. The children prayed for God to fill me with His Spirit and for my allergy to be healed. To be honest, I was doubtful I would be healed because the last time I had eaten sesame in hummus, I had gone into anaphylactic shock and my throat closed, requiring medication to help me.
Two days later I was with a group of friends standing around the kitchen at a friend’s house after a worship night. The mother of the house had made some Asian food. We were hungry, and so without thinking too much, we dug in. After nearly finishing, we jokingly asked whether there was any sesame in the dish. We were alarmed to find out that the beef had been cooked in sesame oil!
My symptoms—vomiting and then a closed throat—usually kick in within 30 minutes. I didn’t have my EpiPen with me. I waited and waited, but for the first time, I wasn’t experiencing any of these symptoms. I knew there was an ER around the corner; however, after an hour, I still had no symptoms. Our friends celebrated, thanked God and rejoiced. I was healed!
Who carries an Epipen?
