I was just adding the image on the left to a video when I observed something. “You look good in a suit?” You may wonder. Well yes! I saw that but there was something else that the Holy Spirit drew to my attention. There was a noticeable bump on my left hand. A bump that is no longer there. (See image below).
“You have never shared this testimony.” The Holy Spirit said.
He was correct. I had thank God for the miracle but never thought of sharing the testimony. For many years it was a well kept secret between me and God. Now that we are close. Let me share what happened.
Sometime in the 2000s I developed this very hard bump on the back of my hand. I poked and prodded it and found that it was solid. It wasn’t fat growing under the skin. It felt like bone growth. It didn’t hurt so I just ignored it.
On Christmas Day 2011 my older sister noticed it. She works at a doctor’s office. So these things do not get pass her keen eyes.
“What’s that bump?”
“This! It is nothing?” I said touching it. (I did touch it).
“That thing is solid?! You must do surgery to get rid of it. You may have complications later from it. Deal with it as soon as possible.”
My response was immediate.
“Don’t worry about it. Surgery will not be needed. God will heal it. It will disappear and I don’t even know its gone.” (My exact words)
“Well I am just telling you to be careful. Make sure you watch it.”
“Thanks sis! Don’t worry about it. As I said Jesus will heal it. It will be gone before I even realize it.”
Family, that is exactly what happened. I didn’t look at the bump after that. I started doing God’s work. Free time was spent seeking the face of God and talking about Jesus with friends. I had no desire for anything else. I was pursuing a Masters Degree in Information Security but lost the desire for it. I still went through the motion of attending online classes with the school in Sweden. At 1 AM or 2 AM I would be class. I took notes but that was as far as things went. No time was spent doing any homework. Nothing schoolwork was done. The allure of making tons of money no longer had a hold over my heart. I was in love…with Jesus. That’s all that mattered.
One day in 2015 I was doing house chores when my left hand drew my attention. I noticed that the bump was no longer there. That’s correct, NO BUMP! It had completely vanished from the back of my left hand. What I confessed years ago had happened. Jesus had done reconstructive surgery on my hand without me knowing it.
What is the lesson we may all learn?
Be sure to speak to your mountain. Now it may not move immediately. If that happens do not give up. Don’t drift off into doubt and unbelief. Keep your confession. When you have nothing good to say. Say nothing.
JESUS SAID you will have what you say, if you do not doubt in your heart. He also said when you stand praying believe you have received and it will be yours (Mark 11:22-26).
Don’t allow doubt to enter into your heart. When it comes in your head cancel it. Tell it to GO! You speak to your thoughts! That’s how you cast down vain imaginations and things that exalt itself against the knowledge of God. Talk to it. Tell it, ‘GO! IN JESUS NAME’.
I am not saying what you say will happen immediately. Do you notice that Jesus said you will speak to the mountain. A mountain is an unmovable thing. It is huge. One a earthquake or some well placed dynamite may topple a mountain. You words must be the dynamites that you use. My creative miracle took years. During that time I never uttered anything else. I just kept believing God.
Sometimes that’s what negates your outcome. You open your mouth and begin talking negative when it doesn’t happen. That toxic acid will cause your desired outcome to evaporate. Be very mindful of that.
Speak the Word of God only. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
My words are not stronger than yours. The power is in your faith in God. Your words release that power. Faith-filled words will get you results. Nothing will hold up your prayers.
Mark 11:22-26 Amplified Bible Classic
22 And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly].
23 Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].
25 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop.
26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings.
