God healed my wife!
Some of you might know through some of my posts that I was recently married, last July that is. My wife is Episkopos' daughter.
Now my wife had been living in chronic pain for about 3 years now... We had prayed, people had prayed over her, her mother had fasted more than once... Still, she was always in pain.
(Forgive the mish-mash of information) Now lately God had been doing other things in our lives. I had prayed for a house, and one near to the brothers that are here, and a job to provide for my family. God had set up my marriage, and I trusted he would set up my family, according to his will and for HIS purpose. Well last November, a job that would be more fitting to provide for a family that the one I have came up, and I applied for it. Then a house came up for sale near the brothers, and they offered that they would buy it, and I would rent it with my wife until we could afford it! I had not said a WORD about my prayer. But I knew that if I was to get a house, and a family, I had to be able to afford it. So I prayed "Lord, if this is your will, provide by getting me this job".
Nothing happened at first, which was fine, and I patiently waited either to discover that this wasn't God's will and he would provide in a different manner or for everything to fall into place.
Well everything fell into place. February 6th I got an email for an interview... The interview was the 13th. At the same time we were waiting for a key to the house so we could visit it (it was owned by a close friend of my parents in law, so they trusted us). My fleece was still out; if you want us to buy the house Lord, provide me with that job. The interview went well. The next day, the 14th, we received the key! The same day, I got the job offered to me! I knew this was the Lord! He set it up!
But there was still one big road block; my wife's pain. It made her unable to be apart of what God was doing here the way she was meant to. She was reluctant about the house, because she saw all the responsibility and knew she couldn't handle it. That made me very reluctant also, because how could I do this if my wife was not able to follow? So my prayer of late had just been that God would do something, that somehow my wife would be able to do this, and that she would be with me wholeheartedly.
This afternoon, we had a sister visit at Episkopos' place. We talked with her for a while, and then she told us about a gift the Lord had given her. She was once disabled. She had a broken neck, and so she had a cast from neck to hips, and she was in a wheel chair. She had prayed, God healed her, and also gave her a gift of healing. So we asked if she would pray for my wife. She did, casting out the devil, and fighting... and as my wife told me later, she felt the battle inside her, and she felt the power go out of her.
My wife is now healed and better! The Lord has healed my wife, and provided for every need! He is faithful and good to deliver those who wait upon him!
We had a doctor's appointment this week... Which we can now cancel! :
May this report of his power, healing, and most timely provision be unto the edification of the whole body!
Blessings to all,
A brother in the Lord
