Miracles Still Happen
Luke 8:43-48 King James Version (KJV)
And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
While attending “A Life Worth Living” church located in El Paso, TX there was a woman under the care of physicians for some time. Tumors were found in and around her abdomen. Before the doctors could even biopsy the mass, seven more had been found. All of which had spread throughout the abdomen. The physicians laid out their plans before her. Plans of dates for test, tubes, and labs. Plans of how and when they would proceed with the biopsy. Plans of what would take place after the biopsy with both good and bad results.
Without fail this lovely woman faithfully attended service each Sunday, and always with a smile. Her faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ
is one of the strongest I remember. Not because of her circumstance, but because of who she is. Prayer from the congregation and others were her continued request, and we were happy to honor her request.
One Sunday, Pastor Stephen Norman decided to anoint with oil. All were welcomed and many went forward. Pastor Stephen said a special prayer and dripped oil on our heads one by one as he said a prayer for each of us collectively and individually also. All those participating were either hand and hand or laid hands on one another’s shoulders. Many miracles resulted from this special Sunday. Where physicians couldn’t Faith in God did.
This lovely women returned to her physicians office after all those test, tubes, and labs. The perplexed physician gave a good report. Not only were the masses non cancerous, but they were gone. Not one remnant remained. I don’t know what came of this lovely, faithful, God fearing woman. But this is what I do know, just as the woman in the Bible so too by faith she was healed.
