I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me.. The Bible says that Christ lives in us (Galatians 2:20). And, that our faith becomes effective and powerful because of our accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ (Philemon 1:6).
At the end of a study of Psalms, extracting all passages that mention or highlight the things that God does, one of the passages that was of particular interest to me was Psalms 147:3 that says, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds”. Every study that I have done in the Bible, I have actively put to test its findings. This time I sought opportunity to test this verse (Psalms 147:3).
Not long after, I came into contact with an acquaintance, a woman, who had apparently left an abusive relationship and felt great depression. She had been in this relationship off and on and suffered tremendously both physically as well as emotionally. After having quite a long conversation with her catching up and so on, she proceeded to divulge to both a family member and I her pain and suffering.
I thought to myself, “well, let’s put the Scriptures to the test”. She requested of us that we pray with her and that was exactly what we did. When I began praying, my intention was to administer healing to her face as it had been swollen for some time. With no more than the tips of 2 fingers I placed my hand on the side of her face and said “LIFE”. Immediately she started screeching. -I initially thought that it was just healing that she desired but at that moment I realized that it was a demon spirit-. I responded almost immediately by saying, “Satan, in the name of Jesus, come out!” As soon as I said that, for a few seconds she seemingly fell unconscious. We then reached over and picked her up from the floor. Thank God she was delivered and the swelling on her face was almost completely diminished. Of course, I did not forget Psalms 147:3. I proceeded to talk to her and then asked her to place her right palm to her chest and then placed my hand on top of hers. I simply, (in memory of Psalms 147) said, “brokenheart be healed and wounds be bound, now”. In a moment, it seemed that all the pain that this lady had been experiencing came forth from within her with a scream. And in about 10-15 seconds the sorrow transitioned into resounding peace. This transition was so dramatic that she looked as though she was in a literal state of bliss. She herself was amazed and said that, “the last few months of my life literally feels like a distant bad dream that I have just awakened from”. Everyone that met her the following days recognized the peace and commented in awe. It was at this experience, that I realized that freedom in Christ is complete! Body, mind and soul. And also every thing that the Lord does, He also does through us His Spirit brothers. WE ARE IN PERFECT UNION WITH CHRIST. WHATEVER HE CAN DO, WE CAN DO AND ARE EXPECTED TO DO!!
