The Lord Still Answers And Jesus Still Heals!

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Psalm 3:4 CEV – I pray to You, and You answer from Your sacred hill.)

The AMPC version of today’s focal verse says, “With my voice I cry to The Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!”

For me, it was in that selah moment: the pausing to serenely and intently reflect upon those words that truly displayed The Lord’s goodness towards me.

So, today, I just want to share on the goodness of The Lord, how He knows all things, and how He deeply cares about and is so intricately involved in every single detail of our lives. Or in my case, how He had given me the answer to a prayer that I had not even prayed yet.

I turned 34 on my birthday which was a little over a couple of weeks ago now. That morning, I was in worship and just sitting with The Lord and I asked Him to give me one verse to focus on for the month. Psalm chapter 3, verse 4 was the verse that He spoke to me.

After reading that verse, I was just in awe because I had prayed and He immediately answered which was what the verse that He had spoken to me to focus on said in a very literal sense.

My birthday was April 4th, which was on a Thursday. On that following Tuesday, I woke up with this unexpected pain in the bottom of my left foot. The pain reminded me of the same pain that I used to get from tendonitis years ago when I played sports. My foot was tender and it was almost like you feel this pulling/tearing going on inside of it.

Well, if you know me, then you know that I am a lover of essential oils and the Queen of holistic remedies. LOL! So, I rubbed some peppermint oil on it which made it feel better instantly and I went on about my day.

However, by that night around bedtime it started to bother me again. And when I woke up the next morning, the pain was worse than it was the previous day, so much so that it caused me to walk with a bit of a limp. Again, I put peppermint oil on it, but this time there was still this nagging pain that never went away. And so, I just pushed through and endured it all throughout that day.

It wasn’t until my time of prayer that night that The Lord reminded me of the verse that He had given me to focus on.

I mean, I had prayed about everything under that sun. I had prayed for myself, my family, my friends, etc… but for some reason I never prayed about the pain in my foot.

After I had finished praying, I was lying on the sofa in stillness just basking in The Lord’s Presence and I heard Him say, “Why haven’t you asked Me to heal you?”

Of course, I knew instantly that He was referencing the pain in my foot. And it was in that moment that I remembered Psalm 3:4 — I pray and He answers! It was profound, yet as simple as that.

I took a moment to reflect upon the promise of Psalm 3:4 and then I sat up, I laid both of my hands on my foot, and I said, “Lord, I ask in Jesus’ name that all of the pain in my foot would be gone and that You would heal it completely and restore to how You divinely intended for it to operate. Amen.” 

As soon as I finished praying, all of the pain was completely gone and I haven’t experienced any pain or issues since!

I share all of this with you guys for three reasons:

  1. ) I had prepared something totally different to share with you all this Sunday, but The Lord wanted me to share this testimony and I always want to be obedient to what He’s asking of me.
  2. ) I wanted you to be encouraged in that fact that The Lord listens and He answers!
  3. ) The truth and promise of today’s focal verse is not just for me, but for every single one of you as well.

And so, today, I leave you guys with this eternal promise and timeless truth: THE LORD STILL ANSWERS AND JESUS STILL HEALS!!!

  1. What a blessing your scripture and post was to read. I always, for some reason, feel so selfish asking prayer for myself. Seems we do tend to pray for all on our list, but recently I have asked for healing. Hopefully, answer will come this week. I trust in his promise. 🙂 Happy Birthday, and glad your foot is okay. He is awesome. Thanks for visiting and linking with Sunday Scripture Blessings, and hope you had a wonderful Easter Holy week.

    • Patricia, I know exactly what you mean. For some reason, it has always been easier for me to pray for others than for myself. I’m so grateful that Papa sends such sweet reminders that He is for us as well and I stand with you in praying for your healing!

      Thank you for the birthday wishes and thank you for visiting with me! It was a pleasure to link up with you! Hugs and blessings to you! 🙂

  2. Tai, this is such a spot on post because I think we all have sometimes failed to go to Him for healing for things….especially those that initially appear minor. If we get a scary diagnosis, we ALL go to Him but those things that crop up that may or may not be serious we skip the obvious that your post so clearly points to. He is eager to meet us and show us His faithfulness to us.

    I especially resonate with this perhaps because He did not give me a verse, but I sensed in my spirit that I was to pray about the digestive issues bothering me that were starting to make me wonder if something serious was going on. I obeyed and they are resolving!

    Thanks so much for sharing this! How slow we can be to learn!

  3. Hello there. Thank you for sharing. When we go behind closed doors and get alone with the Father something special happens. We’re in “secret” with Him and in secret, He appears. We’re fellowship with the Holy. He speaks, we listen……We speak, He listens. He could have healed you without you asking, but you asking allowed Him to show Himself. Awesome!

  4. Tai, I love that you listened to the voice of the Lord and wrote this post about what He laid on your heart as opposed to what you had originally planned, although I am sure that was very good as well. The still, small voice… Not only am I reminded that He is my Healer, but I am also reminded to listen to His voice! Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements!

    about Jesus still healing….I have been healed numerous times myself, and I believe he wants us
    to share that with others for sure. This is my first time to ever come across your path, and I was
    certainly blessed by visiting. Thank You.
    Blessings,
