H!e Really Means It!

If you recall from a former post, on June 14th Joel and I went to a healing service up in Minnesota where Joel and I both were prayed for.  Joel experienced a hearing increase in one ear and the healing of dyslexia.  I was prayed over, fell under the power of God, and believed for healing of my nervous system, eyes, and thyroid.  We saw nothing change in my eyes or neuropathy, but we saw significant energy changes in me~ with the results showing up in how far I can walk ~ one miles~ and how much I can do at home....and going to church and traveling.  I am also no longer taking thyroid medication.  (When I go in for my physical I will have it confirmed).

Today as I sit in my recliner again with a nasty increase of joint and nerve pain, to avoid focusing on this turn of events I have been catching up on writing letters to friends.  As I wrote about the past few months I realized how much has changed.  Trips to WI, Des Moines, Minneapolis twice, southern Minnesota, and northern Minnesota are interspersed with going shopping in stores again, attending church on Sundays, and walking a mile daily.  Things have improved and especially since the June 14th healing service.  In my quest for something more, I had forgotten how much more I already have!  With humility I am giving thanks.

Then today as I was reading a post written by Debbie over at Jeremiah 29:11 I heard a confirmation to a question I had put before God.  It, too, involves healing.  Debbie wrote about how she spoke about her knee being healed before it actually was.  How she stood on God's promises.  She was declaring what was not yet seen because she believed it was going to be.  It was powerful for me.  Let me explain......

You see, about 10 days ago Joel and I watched a healing conference live stream in Orlando Florida.  Randy Clark was having the annual Voices of the Apostles Conference.  During the final service people from his team were sharing words of knowledge about those in the audience or online who were in need of healing.  Only twice that we heard did they say people's names along with the healing taking place.  We watched and listened until about three minutes to ten when we decided it was time for bed.  It was almost over anyway...........Three minutes to 10...........

I decided to check my emails before heading to bed and there was one from my friend Katherine who had also been watching the conference from CT when her schedule allowed.  She said, 'Did you hear it??  At 10 o'clock as they were finishing up the service a man said, "There is a woman named Renee, and God is healing your eyesight."  Katherine went on to share that others spoke about eye twitching being healed. too.  She ended by saying, "I hope you were watching, but if not I am claiming that for you!"

I burst into tears when I read this.  Joel came over asking me what was wrong and as I shared it with him.  He said, "I had asked God for someone to actually say your name tonight."  I replied to him, "I had asked for the same thing, but then decided it was not practical since no one was using specific names when sharing words of knowledge."  When we were asked to pray for something specific for ourselves I had prayed over my left eye that was twitching all the time, and for healing of the glaucoma and cataracts.  At the time I did not experience any changes.

We were so disappointed we had missed hearing this specific word of knowledge, but God made sure we did by having my friend Katherine hear it and let us know.  Only God.

I have struggled with sharing what I believe was a word from God that night because the cataracts and glaucoma are not gone yet, and I was worried more about what people would think than what God was whispering to me on several occasions.  ~Speaking about it before seeing it came to pass!~
So here I am, speaking about what is coming!  Healing is coming for my eyes!  What a glorious day that will be!  I no longer have the eye twitching...that left soon after, and I believe that my eyes are healing and that some day soon the glaucoma and cataracts will be a thing of the past.  God spoke to me using my name~ Renee~ and I am holding tight to His promise!

At the beginning of the service on the last night, a young woman came up and shared her healing story.  She had been healed of numb legs and feet from a back injury I believe.  She said she did not feel anything at first and thought she was probably not healed....but she went into the bathroom and while in the stall the feeling came back in her legs and feet.  She said something so powerful ~ "When God says you are healed, He really means it!"  Joel and I had burst out laughing at the time, but her words echoed in my head.  Especially after getting Katherine's email.  What God has told me I can trust.  He really means it!  What God has told you? ~~He really means it and you can trust Him.  His words are trustworthy.  His Word is trustworthy.

In gratitude and obedience I am sharing today.   It is not the final report.............that will be coming when I share the rest of the story.

"My child, pay attention to what I say
Listen carefully to my words
Don't lose sight of them
Let them penetrate deep into your heart
For they bring life to those who find them
And healing to their whole body."
Proverbs 4:20-23

Dear Renee, I'm so excited for you and believing for increased healing in your body, in Jesus name. I think it is so cool that Joel was healed of dyslexia. I have often felt that this somehow is tied into my beloved's unbelief...something happened in his childhood at church that impacted him. He also lives in pain from a disc disease and constant pain in his neck and back. You've encouraged me to stand and believe that our Lord is greater still. Thank you dear one.
Hugs & blessings.

I agree in Jesus' name!

Hi Noreen
Oh I do understand how childhood memories get in the way of trusting and believing. Sorry to hear he is dealing with so much pain. Praying for him, Noreen. Yes, stand firm and keep your eyes on The Healer!

Thanks Pamela!

Renee - AMEN!!!!! I so love reading your stories and the things you share. It's incredible, and I believe that your eyes are healed, too! You've also reminded me of something that happened years ago, when Jesus told me He would "bring me back up again." I declared for two more years that He was healing me, even when others thought I was a lunatic. Well He did, and at the time I didn't even know anything about theology. Just that I believed Him when He'd said it. I'm humbled by your post, because I wonder if I stand that firmly on His promises today. It's caused me to think about these things in my own life. And of course to PRAISE for what He's doing in yours. Amen, Renee! God is healing you!

Thank you Kim. For your kind words and your support! Amen, amen. How great God blessed you as you stood on His promises. To God be the glory.
