I called Aimee* to check on her. As the newly appointed pastor of a church, I like to connect with my congregation and see how they’re doing. Toward the end of the call, I asked if there was anything I could pray about. Aimee asked me to pray for God to heal her eye.
Several months ago, Aimee had stumbled in her living room and hit her eye on the corner of the coffee table. She lost her vision and was under medical care. I prayed for her, asking Jesus to miraculously heal her eye.
The next day, Aimee called me and excitedly shared the news. That morning as she walked out of her bedroom, she saw a bright light in front of her. She ran back to her bedroom to assess the situation. All of a sudden, Aimee realized she could see out of her eye. The miracle we had requested had been granted! We rejoiced together, praising the LORD for His goodness.
When we hung up, I marveled at what had happened. My heart overflowed with joy at this incredible answer to prayer. It felt surreal.
I know better than to take even the slightest bit of credit. All glory belongs to God. I saw a picture in my mind of hundreds of prayers that had gone up to the LORD on Aimee’s behalf. As a congregation, we had been praying for months for her healing. It was not one prayer that moved His hand. It was a concert of prayer from dozens of believers seeking healing for their sister.
I love that the LORD uses us together to accomplish His purposes.
The Scriptures says, “All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it” (1 Cor. 12:27 NLT).
It’s a group effort empowered by the Holy Spirit every time a person gives their life to Jesus or receives healing. What a blessing to work together for the King of Kings to change lives! There is nothing better than to see people like Aimee touched and transformed by Jesus.
LORD Jesus, thank You that You are the God of salvation and healing, new beginnings and transformation. Help me step out in faith and share Your love with others in words and actions. Strengthen me by Your Spirit to do my part with courage. Amen.
