I received another testimony of healing, from a daughter in Christ. She is a married woman, mother of two children and faithful as a worker in the church. This testimony is given to the glory of God, to the shame of the devil and for the encouragement of the brethren. Read and be blessed! (Please encourage her too. She will read your comments). Thank you and God bless you!
“Dear Malia, I had this pain in my armpit for about a month now. It’s been so disturbing that I just kept touching it and trying not to be scared even though the discomfort and slight pain won’t let me be. So, on Wednesday, my husband got back from work and as he was having dinner, I was telling myself I had to tell him about this pain. Just then my phone light came on, I looked behold it was your testimony of chest pain and the supernatural healing you got. Immediately it occurred to me I had not spoken to the Lord about this particular pain. I decided not to discuss it with my husband but take it to God in prayer. Hmm!!!! This God enhhh… I said a simple prayer that night. The next morning my entire prayer time was devoted on this pain….. At the end of the day I realized there was no longer discomfort nor pain… I waited for the next day which is Friday still no pain. We had a communion service in the house, and I shared the testimony with my family. Up until now no pain, no discomfort… No be small totori this God dey do Him children….. Truly I can’t thank God enough for this supernatural healing. I am glad I belong to Jesus and I eat this healing bread He has so freely given to His children. This kind God o, I never see Your type ooo…. This kind God o… Blessed be Your Holy Name….. Hallelujah!!”
“My soul longs, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself where she places her young by Your altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King and my God. How blessed are those who dwell in Your house; they are ever praising You. Selah! (Ps 84:2-4)
After two months of lockdown, we shall have church service tomorrow in the sanctuary. The brethren in charge of cleaning the house of God came this morning with buckets and detergent, and made everything spotless. God bless them! My husband and I live in the church’ premises but we miss the brethren coming together to serve and worship God. During this lockdown a pair of sparrows made their nest to raise their babies in the street light in the church’ parking lot. The cover was broken and they just took advantage of a quiet and safe spot to become our ‘free tenants’. You see, even the little birds appreciate the presence of the Holy Spirit! Until their babies fly away, we shall leave the nest there. Kindness is more important than esthetics. I believe that the God that helps these little birds, will help you too and provide for your needs! Dear Brethren, Praise the Lord!
(In the pictures: 1-The birds and their nest… 2-the sanctuary sparking clean waiting for the brethren to come tomorrow)
“YOU SHALL NOT LISTEN to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deut 13:3)
Here we see a peculiar sin that starts with the ears and ends in the heart. God commanded His people NOT TO LISTEN to false prophets. In Hebrew, the word ‘listen’ means to hear intelligently, to give attention and try to understand the words you hear so that you can obey them. This is the sin of a student listening to his teacher. This sin means to listen humbly and respectfully the words of the false teacher. The sin is to ‘borrow’ your God given ears for the devil to use. God is the ‘landlord’ of your ears, but you invite the devil to be the free tenant. As the sexual lust of the eyes is equal with adultery, so the lust of the itchy ears is sin! Lies pollute the ears and poison your spirit! This spiritual contamination destroys your wisdom, peace, joy, and faith! Listening to lies is very addictive. It is like taking cocaine or drinking alcohol! It gets worst with time! Have you thought of that? There are many prophetic ‘what-sup and Facebook’ messages… Must you listen to them all? Must you have an opinion about them all? Be careful! Be jealous over your ears! Are your ears clean? Are your ears circumcised and cleansed by the Holy Spirit? If not, your ears will only bring trouble to you and to your ministry (2Tim 4:1-5)!!! Selah!
Our Lord Jesus Christ warned His disciples to be careful with their ears! He said: “Pay attention, therefore, to how you listen. Whoever has will be given more, but whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.” (Lk 8:18). He said that if your ears are ‘dirty with the sin of error’ more error shall be added to you until you backslide! But if, by the power of the Holy Spirit, your ears are cleansed from lies and deception, you shall become cleaner and stronger still. Good ears are necessary so that faith can be built in the heart! “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom 10:17). If you still struggle with doubt and anxiety, if your faith is still small compared with the challenges you face, it may be that you need to cleanse your ears with the earbuds of the Spirit! “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Rev 2:29)!
Let us pray: Dear Heavenly Father. we confess the sin of being carless with our ears. We did not use them to listen to Your voice. We borrowed our ears to the devil’s agents to listen to lies and deception. We have sinned! We ask for mercy from You. We are sorry, Father God! Cleanse our ears and our hearts with Your Spirit. We plead the Blood of Jesus over our bodies, souls, and spirits! Please help us to love only Your Word and to listen only to Your voice! Holy Spirit, please fills us afresh! In Jesus’ name we pray, amen!
This is the second healing testimony I received today. He is a young brother, about 21 years old. He lives with his mum. He goes to school and he works part time. He is a very talented and creative young man in the area of media. He is a true worshipper. He is always encouraging me with scriptures and songs. He sent me this note. This testimony is given to the glory of God, to the shame of the devil and for the encouragement of others. Jesus is Lord!
“Dear Malia, I have a testimony. Recently, I was in a dark mode (I was very sick). On Sunday afternoon, there was a very simple headache and I didn’t give heed to it. But after some time, the headache increase but this time dizziness kick in. I had to go to the near by pharmacy with my mom because I can’t see properly. When we got there, the guy question me and did some check up. The result was TYPHOID FEVER (I wasn’t scared, I’m praying this out). But he added: “guy, blood nor dey your body oh”. Immediately I heard this word, my heart dropped. I took the medicine. I forwarded a message to Pastor … (our light house leader) about my condition. I did prayed. I waited for the healing to come. Monday and Tuesday night I slept with difficult breathing. I was still waiting for my miracle… Today I woke up well! Thank You Jesus! Right now, by the grace of God, I’m strong, in fact, more than healthy (if there is any word for it) . I’m super excited MA. All glory, Honor, Adoration be unto God! Glory! Glory!”
This testimony is given to the glory of the only Living God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is given to the shame and defeat of the devil and for the encouragement of others. Last night, a brother in Christ sent me this inbox message. He is happily married with children. I am a witness that both him and his wife are faithful with God’s work in the church. three days ago he became very sick. they prayed! God touched him and healed him instantly! All the brother wants is that together, we should all praise God for what He has done! Halleluiah! Read and be blessed!
“Good Evening Ma Lia. I know that this is rather late in the night, and I am very sorry for the inconvenience to you but I just can hold this in my spirit and I have vowed to always testify about God’s goodness in my life hence forth.. I have been feeling very sick since Monday evening experiencing body pains, nagging headaches, weakness, chills and high fever that I had to commence self medication for malaria yesterday morning. In line with Covid19 protocols in my work place I had to report this to my company’s doctor who advised that I stay at home until my malaria treatment is over and then report to him about my condition. The truth is I became very worried about the possibility that this could be Covid19 and my family could be at risk so I had been taking care to maintain some distance from my children and to an extent my wife, even though it has been difficult. Since the fever started on Monday night we have been praying together lifting me up for healing. This night, some few minutes ago, while we were praying, I was moved in my spirit and began praying in tongues… Suddenly I felt strength coming into my body, and peace in my mind…A kind of release came upon me and I started laughing… I knew instantly that I have been healed by God!!! I immediately told my wife and children and we all started worshipping and praising God. I used to get exhausted just by talking, my walk that had been slow but now I have vigor … Right now I am singing, clapping and dancing freely with strength and power, no headache and no body pains and no weakness!!! Glory to God Almighty who has healed me and to Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior who paid the price for this healing. I thank God for His unfailing love and grace upon my life and for this miracle of healing which has strengthened my faith and trust in God and my desire to know Him and to pray to Him about challenges and difficulties I may encounter. God bless you and Ta Leigh for spiritual teaching and nurture you provide us about the Lord Jesus. Good night Ma!”
God’s Word: “Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise!” (Jer 17:14)
I live in Effurun/ Warri, Nigeria. I love our garden. The plants we planted are humble plants. They are ‘low maintenance’. They are very happy with just sun shine and water. I took this pictures two days ago, after the rain. The plants revived and look so happy! Their simplicity and beauty teaches me that my life too, should not be complicated and cluttered with many things. My mind should be clean and transparent. I should be humble and grateful for my life. Then I will be happy! And, like our plants, I should always remember to praise God always!
God’s Word: “The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Gen 1:12)
“Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them!” (Mk 11:24)
This is my testimony: I remember once, I had a serious chest pain. Because I am Christian. you may take it for granted that I pray always. But at that instance, I was deceived! I thought that I prayed, but I did not!!! I was only complaining about the pain. Like Elijah, I was using complaining as a form of ‘prayer’. That was wrong! Complain is not prayer!!!! Talking to God in the name of Jesus, that is prayer!!! I forgot that in all situations, God is my first ‘option’. In fact, my only ‘option’!!! The pain continued and I was surprised that God is not hearing me. I was saying ‘Why, God, why?” Once I saw the deception, rejected the devil and I truly prayed, the pain stopped and ‘there was a great calm’. What a difference!
What is the lesson? Ignoring to pray is a very common mistake. When pastors, friends and doctors fail, after suffering for a long time, finally, we remember God. He is patiently waiting for us to pray. Once you pray trusting the Lord Jesus Christ, with faith 100% and Doubt 0%, God answers the prayer immediately! God does not waste our time! It is only we that waste our own time! It is a pity that even after this, I repeated the same mistake. Sometimes I assumed that I prayed…But I did not! The devil deceived me not to pray anymore saying to me: ‘you have prayed already, why disturb the Master?’ It was very much like the way Jairus’ family members discouraged him to trust Jesus for a miracle. “While Jesus was speaking, someone came from Jairus’ home and said, “Your daughter has died! Why bother the teacher anymore?” (Lk 8:49). Jesus told Jairus, ‘fear not, just believe!’ To my shame, if it is not for the grace of God, I could have accepted the death of my dreams as they were lying in bed, helpless and fainting for lack of prayers… Thank God that He has overruled my mistakes so many times, I cannot count them…. In all things, we give thanks… But one good thing coming from our past pains and mistakes is that today, we can exchange testimonies of the grace and the goodness of God! I am waiting for you to share with me prayer testimonies. Let’s worship the Lord Jesus together!
