“God Can Heal It!”

I had been waiting six weeks to get the cast off. My two oldest sons were a few steps up on the stairs looking at me earnestly.

“Can we play with you now, Dad?”

“OK, I guess, but we need to take it easy.”

When the cast was cut off, the doctor had said it wasn’t quite healed and that I should not be horsing around. But my kids loved to play bull riding. I had bucked my oldest off my back six weeks earlier and he had landed heavily on my hand, making a break on my left thumb above the upper knuckle. I even got a cool glow-in-the-dark cast so I could thrill my kids after the lights went out at bedtime. Now it was off and my oldest perched gleefully on my back, ready to get bucked off as usual. A few bucks and a turn move, and yep, he came right off…onto my same thumb! I felt it crack; I had broken the bone once again.

I was on all fours on the floor with my head tucked down, holding my left hand underneath me, when my children chirped in.

“Dad! God can heal it!”

They looked at me with those beautiful faces full of believing.

“Well, why not?” I thought. I had ministered healing to many folks over the years and seen a few miraculous, instantaneous healings. But for myself? Not yet.

“OK, I’ll pray,” I said.

They closed their eyes, whispering in tongues with their lips moving like kids do at that age. Wow, pure-hearted believing. Still bundled up on all fours on the floor, I tucked my head back down and began to pray out loud.

“Father, thank you in the name of Jesus Christ….”

The bones went back together before I finished the first sentence; I was instantly healed.

In this ministry of The Way, I learned the foundation of my power of attorney using the name of Jesus Christ. And, I have been able to experience the pure-hearted believing of children.

God Shall Supply

I’ve had countless victories thanks to the truth of God’s Word I have learned in The Way Ministry. One such victory occurred on the Way Disciple field. We were working locally during our tenure, and due to various circumstances, we were going to have a deficit in our budget for the upcoming month. We were practicing the principles from the Word that we were taught. For example, we were working heartily at our jobs, faithfully abundantly sharing, and staying on the give.

One night, the members of my household and I sat down to look at our budget in order to get clear and concerned on how much exactly we would need the upcoming month. We ran the numbers and figured out that we needed an additional four hundred dollars in our bank account to cover our needs for the next month. We then prayed together as a household for this need to be met, and we claimed Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” We didn’t know how God would supply our need, but prayed claiming the promise that He would.

That same night we got a knock on our door. It was someone we witnessed to who had attended a few fellowships. Usually we would have had fellowship that night, but we needed to cancel due to a snowstorm in the area. This certain believer didn’t get the message since his phone died earlier that day. We welcomed him in and had a prayer and believers’ meeting.

Before he left, he told us that God was working in his heart all day to bring us something. He doubted it at first because he didn’t think we had any lack, but by the end of the day he was convinced of what God was showing him. He was thankful for the work we were doing as Way Disciples in his town. He handed us four hundred dollars in cash. We thanked him and praised God that night!

I have seen over the years that as we faithfully believe, God always comes through on His Word. I trust and believe, then rest assured that my heavenly Father will come through as He always has before.

This ministry has taught me how to know God’s will for my life. I have learned how to pray according to the promises of God and believe to live a life of abundance and power.
