My Health Suffered for Years… Then God Worked a Miracle
Chloe, 20, New Brunswick, Canada
I have struggled with IBS, Crohn’s disease, and celiac disease for the past five years. I tried a strict gluten-free, dairy-free diet. I tried all of the medications, natural remedies, surgeries, and anything else you can think of. Nothing worked. Because my body wasn’t properly digesting nutrients, I was always exhausted. Not only was I tired, but I was also throwing up or sitting on the toilet all the time. If even the tiniest bit of dairy or gluten got into my system, I’d be sick in bed for days. I was always having to cancel plans and ended up quitting my sports. It eventually got so bad that I began failing school. I was miserable.
Then, God moved. I knew the Lord and had surrendered my life to Him…or at least, I’d surrendered everything except my disease. Though I’d heard of miraculous healings, I’d always doubted that it could happen for me. But three weeks ago, I found myself being prayed over by a group of strong believers. I felt God’s presence and as they prayed, I felt something inside of me shift. In an instant, all bloating went away. I couldn’t deny what I felt, but I was still skeptical. During the next few days, I continued avoiding gluten, out of fear that I hadn’t actually been healed.
But a week later, the Lord confirmed it. I was sitting in church when our pastor began a message called “Dare to Believe.” He spoke about trusting God and believing Him when He makes a promise. Immediately, the Lord whispered, “I dare you to believe that I healed your body.” The conviction was overwhelming, to say the least!
When I got home, I decided to try to eat something. I was looking for something that had only a little bit of gluten…just in case. But the voice of the Lord spoke up again: “I am the bread of Life.” I immediately grabbed a piece of bread and bit into it. Man, did it taste good! I ate the entire piece and felt NOTHING. No sickness, no bloating, no aching…nothing. Here I am, three weeks later, healed of my diseases. I’m telling you: God is real. Healing is real.
That illness is not my portion.
That illness is no more.
Thank you Jesus
