On 8/4/13 God worked a miracle in my life. He healed me of a frightening nerve pain in my arm and hand while
watching TV. The man said someone is being healed right now in the arm and pointed to the exact area on my arm where the pain originated!
I’ve told people who I know what happened. Most believe me, one or two don’t but are polite about it. I understand their unbelief because I NEVER believed that any miracle took place when people on TV said things like that. “Some one has just been healed while watching this show. Your back has been hurting you for years and now you can move pain free.” I thought, “Why do they do that? They don’t need to, they have a lot of money already. They’re saying good Biblical things, they don’t have to interrupt they’re message and do that.” It made me doubt that God ever healed. Now, I know that it is real. Not everyone is legit, that’s been proven but some are.
One man asked, “If you didn’t believe that people got healed watching TV why were you watching the show?” Fair question and I answered him, “The show is interesting.” He still didn’t really believe me but that’s okay. Just hearing about such a thing makes us think more about God.
Why did God heal me? I don’t know. I didn’t even ask him to heal my arm but I’m so glad He did. Many of us can believe there is a God but we have trouble believing that He cares about us. This is evidence for me that God does care for all of us and me. Jesus cares about you too. He wants to heal you but you have to let him.

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.
