Back in November, I had the privilege of doing some meetings in wetsern France, the Vendee region. Apart from endless baguette and wine, there were even greater things to enjoy!! Lots of people were healed (see blogs for 22 November to 6 December). Among the many people prayed for is a lady, Jeannette: I met her in Nantes, and it was one of those occasions when I heard a prophetic word concerning her breast cancer, that there would be nothing left of it when she saw her Oncologist in January…. one of those times when you think, ‘Oh my goodness, did I say that out loud…?’!!
Three weeks later, I had a message from Philip, the leader of the wonderful Charismatic Catholic group there, which was a message that, if you allowed it to, could pile doubt on you as the person who prayed, and steal away the belief in the healing promises of God, and the conviction of the prophetic word that followed the prayer. Here’s what Philip said:
- Hi Paul, a woman called Jeannette called me yesterday after a medical condition check up and she still has a breast cancer on the way. She told me you had a word of knowledge on that saying there was nothing left. She will be operated at hospital on in the 4th of January. I hope it is just symptoms. Please pray with me for her. Be blessed
I responded –
- I remember this lady, and my feeling is that the cancer will be gone before the need for surgery. Maybe I didn’t make very clear at the time, perhaps my English was ‘too’ English to translate well… 🙂 I’ll be praying for her: I believe that you’re right, as is often the case, that it is symptoms, the enemy wanting to leave fear and doubt in her mind. If you are going to be speaking to her again soon, perhaps suggest that she thnaks God as often as she can for her healing, and not to dwell on the medical diagnosis and the ‘possible’ surgery…..
- Philip: Amen ! I told her that !thanks
and then, yesterday:
- Philip: She’s healed!! The surgeon didn’t find anything except 1mm of cancer. Be blessed!
GOD IS SO, SO AMAZING!! AND SO, SO FAITHFUL!! I’m still so in awe every time there’s a miracle, even after more than 30 years of seeing God doing some of the most wonderful things to transform people’s lives.
