Psalm 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.
An elderly man living in Benue State had an accident which affected his urinary tract system over 4 years ago. For this reason, he could no longer pass urine in the normal way. The doctor had to insert a catheter to aid the passing of urine into a urine bag, which he carried about.
After some time, he could bear the pain no more, so he went to see his doctor at the Medical Center in Benue State. He was told that the problem could be solved through surgery, but it would cost him N450,000. He declined because he didn’t have that kind of money. He decided to visit University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, where he was told to bring N250,000 for the surgery. At Ibadan, he met a brother he had known in Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) many years ago in Benue State.
This brother who is a carpenter, is now a member of Holiness Revival Movement, Oyo State Chapter and an Elder in CAC, Ibadan. When our brother heard of the mishap that happened to the elderly man, he encouraged him to have faith in God. He told him that God purposely brought him to Ibadan to enable him know about Holiness Revival Movement and in the process save him and his family members.
Subsequently, he was brought to the State Coordinator of HOREMOW for counseling. The Coordinator encouraged him saying if only he could believe, all things are possible. Two weeks later, the State Chapter had a powerful 4-day in-door crusade. It was on the first day of the program that the Lord visited the sick brother. He suddenly felt pressed to urinate and left the hall. When he got to the toilet, he discovered that the catheter had removed by itself and he could urinate normally.
It was a great surprise to him. The testimony was shared in the meeting and everybody rejoiced with him giving glory to God. The following day, he went to see the doctor at UCH who were also shocked. They too acknowledged that only a miracle of God could have done that. He has since returned to Benue State and joined HOREMOW Benue Chapter.
To the glory of God, he did not spend a penny for his treatment to receive God’s permanent and perfect healing. May your healing also come in Jesus name.
Thought for the day:
Jesus is the Great Healer.
Song for the day:
Anywhere He went, He was doing good…..
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 34-35; Acts 22
