I know a woman who has been in and out of the hospital for about a month now. She has been unable to eat or drink, walk or take care of her basic physical needs. A week ago, they put her in ICU. Doctors kept changing their diagnoses and treatments without improvement. Earlier this week, doctors told her that she was in serious trouble and if she didn’t get better quickly there was nothing else they could do.
It looked like the end, as a matter of fact, I thought it was the end.
She asked people to pray to God for a noticeable improvement in the morning. Many people did so and the very next day she began feeling better. She could eat regular food again, quickly regained her strength and was walking on her own. Doctors moved her out of ICU to a regular care room and today she is going home!
She asked God for something crazy and rather selfish like, improved health the next day and God answered her prayers with a major, “YES”. This woman’s no Girl Scout either but she believes that God exists and wants her to be healed. That’s how you get a miracle.
Hebrews 11:6 It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists [and] that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.
