I just wanted to reach out because I am asking for prayer… I know you talk about so many different things and I wanted to ask you to pray with me. When I thought of who I wanted to share my problem with you were one of a few women I thought of. I recently got some medical news that is kinda scary. Nothing bad has been told to me yet, but I am so frightened. I am lined up to take so many different medical tests… I know God hears my prayers to but just keep me in your prayers please…” (Monica, FL)
Dear Monica, thank you so much for allowing me to share some of your email. When I read your email in great length, I felt much compassion. Standing in prayer with you is a privilege, because you thought enough about me to share what you are going through.
As a human being, being fearful is part of the human framework. It sounds like this pending medical news and upcoming testing is making your nervous, because you don’t have all the information yet. Facing unknown territory in life can be scary for anyone.
I want you to know, Monica, that God created you, me, and everyone, and He created us with emotions so don’t be so hard on yourself for simply… feeling. I also want you to know, Monica, that applying your faith in this situation is ALWAYS the key. The human thing to do is to start searching and reading all kinds of stuff on the internet, etc., but continue to stay focused on reading and meditating on the word of God. The word of God should ALWAYS be the first thing we run too and cling too when life is living up to its reputation of throwing unexpected curve balls.
You know, Monica, one of the many things that’s so amazing about Jesus is that He ALREADY bore our sins and iniquities on that rugged cross (1 Peter 2:24). So what does that mean for us today is that every lash that Jesus took, He took it for all the bad and terrible sickness and disease that people have faced, are facing, and will face. Those lashes represented healing from hearing loss, depression, blindness, chronic pain, all forms of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, infertility, lupus, learning disabilities, back pain, paralysis, brain injuries, tumors, and all abnormalities, etc. What you are facing in this upcoming medical determination, Jesus has ALREADY bore this for you; therefore, you have a right to declare your complete and permanent healing. As a believer, you ALREADY have the authority to rebuke any sickness and disease to leave your body as well as negative thoughts and speech from anyone.
Monica, I know you have probably heard this so many times before, but calm down, take deep breaths, and when fear comes tell fear it has no place in your life. Another thing that people may not always talk about with healing is forgiving. Talk to God and ask for forgiveness for anything you may have done and even forgive those that have wronged you. Continue to speak life over your body every day and give God thanks for everything even the things that are unknown, because God can take care of you (Philippians 4:4). God sees you, Monica, and God is not done with you yet so keep your eyes fixed ONLY on Jesus. Be at peace, because YOU GOT THIS!! -Tracy
