The message I gave last week at our Special Touch R.E.A.C.H. New England Chapter meeting was on steps of faith and this was my story of faith in that message.
Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
One day out of the blue, I became allergic to peanuts and ended up going to the hospital. It was about two weeks after I got out of the hospital that my son, Tom, told me, “Mom, God already healed you. Here, Mom try this.” It was something with peanuts in it. I can tell you I did not have the faith he had.
Tom would remind me quite often that God already healed me. Every time we had worship practice Pastor J would ask, “Does anyone have a prayer request?” without hesitation, my prayer request every time was to be healed from this peanut/nut allergy.
It was just about six months after the initial reaction to peanuts that Tom said again, “Here Mom, please eat this peanut M & M, please, Mom?! I just know God already healed you.” That was right around Christmas Eve day and it was in that very moment I felt God say in my heart, “Why don’t you have faith like your son?” So I said ok, I’m going to believe and have faithlike Tom so I ate that peanut M & M in faith believing that I was completely healed of this peanut allergy. And for the first time in six months I did not have a single reaction. No tingling of my tongue, no hives, no swelling, and I mean not even the slightest reaction of any kind. I was completely healed just as my son had believed. I can tell you, we were doing a “Hallelujah” dance in our kitchen that morning.
I tell you this because it does not matter how long or how little time you have been a Christian to have faith like that. What matters is do you believe and trust God to do what he promises in His word. For nothing is impossible with God. Amen!
