I am thankful to God for The Way Ministry and for the rightly divided Word that I have been taught. Because of the keys to the Word’s interpretation and the principles from God’s Word that I have been taught, have believed, and have applied, I have had the joy of seeing God bring about great victories in my life.
One such victory came when our daughter was eight months old. One morning while I was waiting for her to wake up, I heard her crying and went to check on her. I found her on the floor; she had fallen out of her crib. I picked her up and tried to calm her and prayed for her, but she continued to cry. I noticed that she had a large bump on her head, so I decided to drive to my husband’s work to have him look at her. He said we should take her to the military hospital. (My husband was in the military at the time.) During the ride to the hospital, our daughter began falling asleep, and it was difficult to keep her awake. At one point her body went limp, and she was not responding. I began to be afraid, but then I turned to God. I remembered the Word that I had been taught, and I reminded myself of the promises of God. I believed that God would keep His promises, and I once again became calm. I knew she would be all right.
We arrived at the military hospital, and they found that she had a crack in her skull. She was awake and seemed fine, but they kept her overnight for observation. That evening our household fellowship coordinator came to the hospital and prayed with us. We were thankful for the mutual believing of the household.
The next day, the military doctor suspected that our daughter had blood collecting on her brain. With the prayers of the household and by holding the Word in my mind, I remained confident that God would heal her. How thankful I was for the principles from God’s Word that I had been taught on how to believe and receive! The doctor decided to fly our daughter and me by helicopter to a civilian hospital in the next city that was specifically for children. The doctor also requested that the best child neurosurgeon meet us at the hospital. This was unusual because normally military doctors handle all medical needs within the military hospitals. My husband and I could see how God was providing the best to bring about our daughter’s deliverance.
At the children’s hospital, it was confirmed that she had blood collecting on her brain. The neurosurgeon gave us two choices on what we could do. One was to have him perform surgery and the second was to just “wait and see” if the blood would dissipate. He also stressed that we needed to make a decision soon because of the pressure on her brain. We asked to be left alone so we could pray. After praying, my husband and I both believed that the best decision was to have the doctor operate.
During the operation, my husband went for a walk outside of the hospital. While outside, he heard the pay phone ringing (this was before cell phones!) and he decided to answer it. When he did, he was amazed to hear that it was our State coordinator calling to see how our daughter was doing! God’s timing was perfect! The State coordinator told my husband that our daughter would be fine, which really blessed and comforted him.
The next morning after the operation, when we went to see our daughter we were told that they had to move her out of the ICU and to her own room because she was so active! She was healed! God is GREAT! The doctor said she was completely well and in record time. We took her home, thankful and rejoicing, and the believers in our household fellowship rejoiced with us to see how God answers prayer!
This is just one example of the victories that I have seen in my life. I have so many things to be thankful for because of this ministry and the Word that someone took the time to teach me—things like fellowship with my heavenly Father, understanding and application of God’s Word, deliverance from fear in my life, my wonderful marriage with a believing man of God, our children that are born again, healing, the joy of serving in this household, and so much more. I am very thankful for our Biblical research, teaching, and fellowship ministry that has taught me the greatness of God’s Word, the Bible, and the “how” of living it.
