On November 15th, around 3:00 in the afternoon, my chest started hurting. This had happened to me a few months prior, but it didn't last long. I prayed and it went away. This time it was much worse. It was on the left side of my chest, and it felt like someone was squeezing the inside of my chest. It was about the size of a fist. Immediately I started reminding the Lord of His word, that by his stripes I was healed, and that I wasn't under the curse. I also commanded my arteries to be clear, and any plaque to dissolve in the name of Jesus. I then praised him, and thanked him. As soon as I finished the thought came, you better take some aspirin.
Well, I asked the Lord to give me grace not to trust in the arm of the flesh, and he did. The pain was so intense I could hardly move my left arm. This went on the rest of the day. Every time I felt fear I would thank him, and praise him . When it was time for bed I laid there and asked the Lord, What is this? I already suspected it was my heart. So, right after I said that Eze. 28 popped into my mind. So I got up and read it. I saw that the word heart was used 6 times in verses 1-10. I felt the Lord was showing me it was my heart. So I closed my Bible and praised him again, and thanked him. Then for some reason I flipped my Bible open and put my finger down on this: (Matt.9:22-23) But Jesus turning and seeing her said, Daughter be of good cheer, thy faith hath made thee whole, and the women was made whole from that hour. I laid back down and immediately the area the size of a fist started to shrink until it was about the size of a finger. The next day there was just that little spot which then disappeared over the next day or two. PRAISE THE LORD!
I tell you this because a couple years ago, before I started listening to your Bible studies, I would have handled this completely differently. I would have trusted in the arm of the flesh. My walk with the Lord is growing and is completely different now. There are things happening in my spirit I can't even explain because I don't understand them yet. I just know the Lord is moving in me and changing and delivering me. Sin that has held me in bondage for years is just melting away. I have such a desire to be obedient to the Lord and my husband. I am so excited. Again, I tell you this because I want you to know the effect this ministry is having on God's people.
