During my three-week retreat I fell going up steep concrete steps that were edged with metal. I hit with full force on the bridge of my nose. I heard a sickening crunch and crack and knew I had broken my nose. Blood poured to the ground and on my white capri pants. I was dazed and when people came to help me they started to call 911 saying my nose was crooked, swollen and “looked bad”. I was shaken and my head and nose were excruciatingly painful. Something inside of me said out loud “don’t call 911, Jesus will heal me; will you all pray with me?”
The group of about six or seven circled and we held hands as I prayed. I don’t know what I said, but another woman in the circle also prayed for my healing. I went to my room and put on a healing CD called “Alone With God” by Jenny Howard that was used for years in the healing rooms of the Christian Healing Center in Jacksonville, Florida. I purchased the CD after attending an Emerging Leaders in Healing conference in Jacksonville and experiencing Jenny’s worship music in person. I was transported and absorbed into God during worship and the same thing happened when I listened to her CD. I could even hear the angels singing with her on the CD.
The CD was recorded in a church when Jenny was to lead worship for a gathering but was sick and didn’t know how she could sing, play her guitar and lead worship in her own strength. She prayed and got up in front of the group and started to sing and play when she found herself at the feet of Jesus. She sang and played from heaven to earth.
Back in my room at the retreat, I started the CD, propped myself up on the bed with pillows, opened my bible and started proclaiming the truth that I am in the image and likeness of God, therefore perfect, whole and complete, including my nose and head. I asked Jesus for complete restoration of my nose stating that he is the Great Physician and nothing is too hard for God and God was able! I read healing verses out loud including Jesus’ Words that if I believed I could lay hands and the sick would recover. I declared that I was healed and made whole.
The pain was excruciating so I said out loud, “Pain be gone in Jesus’ name” The pain was instantly gone! My faith skyrocketed! I started to declare that the swelling go down, inflammation be gone, the cartilage restored and the bone be realigned and healed. I started to feel changes in my body. After the CD stopped I got up and looked in the mirror; the swelling had decreased! I lay back down and pressed play again and declared the soft tissue was repaired, the mucus membranes restored and the nose was perfect, whole and complete. I felt the angels touching me and my nose straighten. I felt the healing angels working in my brain! I felt movement and tingles and heat. I was in awe and wonder! I just kept declaring God’s truth over my nose and thanking God! After the next hour, I got up and looking in the mirror again; still more improvement!
I got back into the bed and started the third hour of declaring God’s truth over my situation, thanking and praising God. I just sang with the music and worshiped and thanked, honored and praised God for his great Goodness! I closed my eyes and just received the river of light flowing into me from above! When the CD stopped again, I looked in the mirror and my nose looked nearly normal!
I was ecstatic! What the enemy meant for evil, God used for Good! The physical appearance was a broken nose, severe pain and swelling; the Truth of God was that I was perfect, whole and complete. I did not judge by the physical appearance, but trusted God and his Word! Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Be healed and made whole” “If you only believe you can lay hands and the sick will recover and nothing will harm you” “And all that came to Jesus were healed” etc!
I gave my testimony the next morning and many were amazed and wanted to know more about this Jesus, this Living One who has the power to make physical flesh bow down to him! All praise, honor, glory, dominion and majesty to our King of kings, the Great Physician who lives and reigns in his people!
Only you can prevent God by your unbelief! The Truth of God is that Jesus restored human beings to the image and likeness of God; whole, complete, perfect, one with our Father, and free! A middle-man is no longer necessary; go direct to our Father and receive all that Jesus restored: our inheritance in and of the kingdom of God. We were given the free gift of total restoration, reconciliation, renewal, regeneration and rebuilding of our body temple. The new heavens on earth is where only righteousness/right relationship to God dwells! Right relationship with God (and therefore all things) equals wholeness, oneness, freedom, love, peace, joy, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience, faithfulness and self-control! If my nose could be restored in three hours, what else is possible? Jesus said the temple [the human body] would be restored in three days. Jesus said we could do all he did and even greater things! What else is possible????
Only you can prevent God! Only you can turn, return to God, know the Truth and let the Truth set you free! Do not judge by physical appearances!
