Am I Alone in my Belief?
I believe in miraculous things. I have seen them myself, in my practice and out. I had a patient who called me with the miraculous news “they are gone, they are gone, they are all gone!!” and I had a patient who said “here, this vial is for you” as he passed over his urine after months of no kidney function. Another who said “It was once the size of a grapefruit and now its gone”.
I believe in miraculous things. And right now, my dear sweet friend and patient, and wife to a good man and mother to three great kids, Sabina, could use something miraculous. This young woman has been an obedient servant of God, committed to Him and to her family, and to those around her. She embodies the first two commandments; constantly loving God and constantly loving people.
The past two Wednesdays I have gone to her bedside to pray over her. To ask God to honor His word and to heal her. To plead with Him to turn His back on the way of nature, and to bring supernatural into her body. Just as I have seen before, pleading with Him to let me see it again. Something amazing, something miraculous.
As I prayed over her on Wednesday however, I found myself telling God, “I am not praying for something miraculous, or unfathomable, or incredible… because to use these words would suggest that I don’t think you’ll do it… that I don’t believe. And that isn’t true, I do believe. This is not a request for something shocking, because you are God, you are able to whisper it into existence. So I am asking for something ordinary from you, something small and possibly mundane. Instantaneous healing of cancer. Is it really that much to do for You?”
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea.” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. (Mark 11:22-23 NKJV)
So as I write this for you this evening. I ask you to join me in praying for Sabina Mazac, pray for her health and healing. And when you do, I beg you to please pray with confidence. That miracles are only miracles to those who cannot believe it, that they are nothing but simple works of God to Him. To put into perspective the reality of His power, and what that could mean. It is easy to say “it is too late, He would have healed her, nobody gets healed from this”, but easy isn’t necessarily right. I need you to believe with me, and through that belief the hope of action.
I often wonder as I am adjusting patients with expectation of healing, and praying throughout my day over every single patient who we see, will they be healed from the touch of their nervous system, will God choose to heal them immediately, or will healing not be gifted. And why?
Tough question. Thanks for your prayers. Be well and Be blessed! – Dr. E
