Blessings from Being Raised in God’s Word

The Way Ministry and the Word of God have done nothing but benefit my life. Because I have been raised in the Word, every situation, conflict, or need that I have come across in my sixteen years has been perfectly dealt with by my family using the power of prayer, the Word of God, and ministry tools.

A brief example of a time when God blessed and healed me was around two years ago. The basketball season had just started for my high school. I was a freshman and on the team, which was looking very promising. In the third day of practice, however, I landed awkwardly and pulled my hamstring. I was having trouble walking, putting weight on my leg, and it really hurt. The trainer said I would most likely miss the next two weeks. This was so depressing to me because the first couple weeks of practice are so important to seeing where all the players fit on the team.

I arrived at home shortly after and hopped up the staircase to my father’s office. My dad, being a man with a lot of knowledge of the Word, reminded me that I could be healed. He found a few verses on healing; then he prayed. I arose from the office chair and immediately felt better and was healed. I even ran up and down the hallway with a big smile on my face. Another great thing was that I was cleared to play at our next practice. Just a couple of days later I was back at the gym as good as new!

I’ve learned in the ministry that I can always go to God in prayer.

Philippians 4:6:
Be careful [Be anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
