In Jesus - 07-22-2012

I had to work today so during my first break I went for a walk as I usually do. On my way back I was walking up to and beside a black women dressed in what looked like a nurses uniform. Once I got next to her for a step or two, I felt a tingling in my left foot. I wondered if it was a word of knowledge for her so I turned to her and said, "This is going to sound strange but do you have pain or a problem with your left foot?" She looked at me somewhat curiously and said, "No, why?" I explained, "I am a Christian and sometimes God will reveal a person's pain or sickness to me and I will pray for them and He heals them. So when I was walking here beside you I felt a tingling in my foot and wondered if that was for you." We talked for a bit and she mentioned that she knew the Lord Jesus and that He was her everything. I said, "He is so good, isn't He?" She said, "Oh yes. And He will give us anything we ask from Him if we believe, asking in His name, and not doubting in our hearts." (John 14:13-14, Mark 11:23-24). I then asked if she had any pain or sickness in her body and she said "Oh yes." After asking where or what it was, she reported having pain in her right side under her right arm. She let me say a quick (approx. 15 second) prayer over her as I put my hand on her shoulder and thanking the Father, then  commanding the pain to leave in Jesus' name. She reported the pain was completely gone. She wasn't even surprised, haha. She just said "Yep, it's gone." while moving her right arm around in circles. She asked me where I attend church and I told her that I haven't been going for about a year now but was thinking of going somewhere soon. She said she usually attends a catholic church but had to work today so she doesn't go on the Sundays she has to work. I proceeded to encourage her that she could do the same thing for others, laying hands on them and commanding them to be healed in Jesus' name and they would recover because Christ has all authority in heaven and earth and He gave us that command (Matt. 10:7-8, Matt. 28:18-20, John 14:12, etc). She said she used to do that for others. I encouraged her by saying "You should keep doing it!" She looked at me as if she was contemplation that statement, haha. We parted ways with a God bless you for each other.

Thank you Jesus, You ARE so good!!
