This testimony is very similar to many we have also encountered where more than one person on our team has prayed for someone over time, who is sick, and the healing took place in stages. Like this testimony, if you need healing, remain in faith and focus on the improvements, giving thanks and not focusing on what hasn’t happened YET!
We know so many people who experience complete healing but continue to place their faith in their sickness believing it will remain or come back, rather than faith in God’s plan to heal them completely and to keep them well. We all have to rise above this temptation that wants to rely on our past circumstances rather than the Word of God. His Word is true!
Here is a perfect example of someone who remained hopeful and in faith until he saw his complete healing!
This is Marco who had a severe brain injury from a second story fall. This young homeless man was left in a wheelchair without much hope to survive and no hope to ever walk again according to doctors reports. He was in really bad shape and honestly he looked more dead than alive when we first met him on the streets of Boston.
Our team laid hands and prayed for Marcos for about 40 minutes as his speaking gradually improved. We encouraged and blessed him and after leaving, hadn’t seen him in several weeks and wondered how he was doing until coming across him on this day in August where he was sitting in the shade.
We were amazed at how well he was speaking and walking without a wheelchair, without physical therapy, and without speech therapy! Praise God! At this time he had quite a bit of pain in his hip and knees when our friend Ian came across him and started praying for him for a couple minutes until all his pain was gone. He then walked without a cane as you can see in this older video below! The rest of the team ran into him about an hour later and prayed a bit more for him and his walking even further improved.
Finally, we met just him again about two weeks ago ( 2 months later) and he is continuing to improve in every area including speaking and walking but I was so excited I forget to get another video! He’s walking with much more confidence and seems improved by another 50% over this video. He also said he he was pain free since the last time we prayed in August and that every time we pray for him, he significantly improves, and is eager to see us again soon in the future!
We see a lot of instant healing but this is a case where the manifestation of healing happened in steps. The results were accelerated after each encounter of prayer. I think we’d all rather see instant healing but the lesson here for us is to always continue to believe, remain in faith, and don’t let what we don’t see on the outside with our eyes, lose sight of what may happening on the inside by faith. God is just waiting for us to rise up in faith so He can show himself strong.
I’m want to learn to stand firm on His truth so my faith doesn’t get hijacked by relying on what I see with my eyes, even if it takes some time. I want to rely on God’s Word with all His promises and continue to believe through Him, so I can keep my faith from being shipwrecked on the doubts of what I see, rather than on the promises I know that real faith can release. I want to stand on the finished work of Jesus and see the unseen happen, as His Glory is manifested by faith….I want to see more of Him! He is amazing and worth believing!!!
