Why complicate something so simple

I made a prayer for healing, I was struggling with a terrible pain from rheumatoid arthritis. It was so painful to even lift up my hands, especially when I was dressing and I would bend so that I make it easy to remove and put on clothes. I prayed, asked to be healed as 1 Peter 2:24
who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.
and waited with expectation. Whilst waiting my mind was creating doubt that I had been praying to be healed for years now,what will be different with this prayer. Remember in my previous stories I have indicated that I prayed for healing but did not get results. I remember one time my colleague asked me, since you pray so much why are you still sick. My answer to him was even Paul suffered and God said to him 2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

After a week as I was waiting expectantly I observed the external piles that I had which has formed small lumps on the outside edge of the anus whereby my GP had adviced to book for operation urgently had vanished . The bleeding and pain was gone and I went to consult for confirmation and GP confirmed that the lumps were gone and he will postpone the operation. God answers prayer

My BP was not controllable, doctors kept on increasing medication.I was taking 5 different pills for high blood pressure only not speaking about other pills for other health issues, below is my reading which was not fine. Normal BP should be 120/80 you can see mine was way too high. The next thing I observed my BP was becoming normal and my pills began to be reduced from five now I am on 3 pills daily see readings below. God answers prayer

My Abnormal BP
My Normal BP

Now the big issue; Rheumatoid Arthritis, Presently I am not having any pain, still get swollen, can lift my hands, I can bend my knee and still praying for cartilage to grow back. Thinking that doctors cannot explain why am I walking, if its not Grace then I don’t know what it is. Let me share with you a story about my trip to Russia where I went with my Colleagues and got sick whilst in Russia and was taken to hospital . When we got to the hospital before I could see the doctor, blood tests and some X-rays were done. I went with the nurse who understood English to the consulting room and when we got in, the doctor and the nurse had a conversation which seemed like they were arguing at last they offered me a chair. I asked the nurse what might be the problem and she indicated that doctor had studied my blood and X-Ray results and was not expecting a walking patient. Then the doctor checked me and asked me which African Herb I was using to be still walking with level 4 Rheumatoid Arthritis. I said I walk by faith not by sight, there is no African Herb I am taking. They looked at me like I have gone banana’s and laughed. Current I can do things I was not able to do, I can bend my fingers, I walk without pain, I am seeing huge improvements and still expecting more everyday. I have learned to say I am not able to do this now but I know I am healed this too is going away. I know its hard but everyday I am expecting more until I am completely healed.God answers prayer

My pain has made me a better person and I understand when someone is in pain because I can relate. It has taught me not to be judgemental, or call people names. I pray that society can stop looking at sick people and thinking their sins are burning them, what sin did I do at thirteen years to suffer such pain. I am grateful for the life I have and I would not understand the mercy and favour to this level. Remember Pray asking, have faith or believe you got and answer, expect results. God wants you to be his Friend and Friends love each other, they talk to each other, laugh together, share secrets and special and painful moments John 15:13-15

Lots of Love see you in my next episode about Encounters

  1. God wanted to show His highness when we go through pain, illness and challenges, if you go through, you learn something from Him, ours is to ask Him what is it that we must learn in the situation, you graduated praise Him

  4. We serve a mirscle eprking God who never sleep nor slumber He is Jehovah Raphael never changes He still the same today yesterday and in future Look at Him He will do wonders. If you trust in Him with all your heart you will do anything that you ask in Jesus name


      1. Jehovah is good. He has been and still is your Jehovah Raphe in this case. His will for our life is that we enjoy life at its fullest, Jesus Christ perfected that will on the cross,so that we can have life and have it abundantly. He doesn’t hurt, He doesn’t punish. He reveals Himsef to those who trust in Him. So did He to you. John 9: 3 clearly states that we do not suffer because we have sinned, meaning that if we all understood this verse and believe in the truth herein, we would all see the works of God revealed through our pain and suffering. Unfortunately this truth is not practical to all of us. Hence we need to look at anyone suffering through the eyes of Christ, have the compassion of Christ. Judgement is not here yet. Judgement is for Jesus not for us. God is love and love never hurts.

  5. What an encouraging testimony.A teaching in itself which tells us that there is nothing God cannot do if we put our trust in Him. He is always ready,waiting and morethan willing to help us because He cares for us As His children He will never allow us to live in bondage of any kind Eph3:20 confirms that our God is able to do far above and beyond anything that anyone can ever dare to hope,ask or even think.It also teaches us that the closer we get to the Lord Almighty, the more we see that He has to be our source in all things.Glory be to Him sister


  6. 1 Peter 5:9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.
    10: In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
    11: All power to him forever! Amen.
