Healing Date: April 25, 2015
I was born with flat feet (a relatively common feature among Asian ethnic groups). They have caused me some pain on and off over the years, but it wasn’t anything that hindered my movement noticeably.
However, sometime in late fall/early winter of 2014, I over exerted myself while running. I was pounding my right foot on the ground too heavily. I knew something was wrong when excruciating pain ripped through the top of my right foot in the middle of the run. It got so bad I couldn’t even let my masseuse touch my foot during a massage!
I went to the top orthopedic specialist in town who gave me a diagnosis that I pretty much expected. Apparently, I am not only a right-hander, but the right side of my body overcompensated for the imbalance in my posture due to my flat feet blah blah blah. The doctor then prescribed customized insoles for my feet that provided arch support.
The customized insoles were pretty effective for about half a year. Then my right foot started acting up again. At times my foot would spasm in such pain that I would start to limp whenever I put any pressure on that foot.
The pain was so constricting that I was either limping or walking very slowly. It was hard … I don’t know which was more agonizing — the physical pain in my foot or that I was moving at snail’s pace.
On Friday, April 24, 2015, I was planning to hold a pray and worship meeting at my home. I was so frustrated with my lack of mobility as I wanted to be free to immerse and dance during worship. Most of all, I got tired of my whimpering passive prayer of ‘… please Lord, please … take away the pain …’.
In the days running up to that day, I got so desperate; I finally started taking authority over the injured foot. I commanded the pain to go and the foot to heal in Jesus’ name! I proclaimed Healing Scriptures fervently, loudly and with vigor, and I kept at this repeatedly, kept believing, without wavering, … pain or no pain. I kept on telling the Lord come Friday; I want to see my healing MANIFESTED!
By Friday, I was hopping up and down during worship time, and somehow, I didn’t feel a thing. The next morning, on Saturday, I woke up, I sat upright in bed, and I placed my right foot on the floor next to my bed. I was stunned! There was no pain whatsoever. To be sure, I walked, I jumped, I hopped, I squeezed my foot hard, and my foot was totally free of pain!
Almost two years have passed since the healing date. My right foot is still flat, but it is still free of any pain since!
1. Take authority over that part of your physical body, where there is pain, injury or illness. Cut out the wimpy, passive prayers! Been there done that. They don’t work.
2. Believe God’s word that you have been given the authority to heal diseases.
3. Command the pain, sickness, injury to leave you in Jesus’ name.
4. Call it out (your body part) and command the pain to go and that part to heal in Jesus’ name.
5. Ignore the lies in your head that this sounds and looks ridiculous — these are lies are sent by the enemy to keep you captive in sickness and to keep you unaware of the resurrection power already deposited within you.
6. You will be surprised … it actually works!
Matthew 10:1 (NKJV) — And He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.
Luke 9:1 (NKJV) — Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
