Touched by His Power

Tuesday night I was touched by God’s awesome healing power! “The Event” Young Adult Conference built me up in my faith, and just when you think you can’t go any deeper with God, you end up continuing to grow. Tuesday evening I had a really bad canker sore on the left side of my tongue. All evening it was bugging me. I couldn’t eat dinner, I couldn’t drink and I couldn’t speak without it hurting. It was rubbing against my teeth and kept getting bigger until I sat down to watch TV and, midway through the show, I had finally had enough of it. So I paused the show I was watching and started praying. I closed my eyes and God started to remove all doubt in my mind that he can do anything in this world if you just ask him. So I put my hand up to my jaw and prayed “In the name of Jesus Christ, remove this canker sore!” over and over again. Then, all of a sudden, my tongue started twitching. The pain started to go away and I felt the canker sore getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and smaller… until finally, about 5 minutes later, it was completely gone! Just a teeny tiny little bump remained. And I then fell to my feet and worshiped him. It was just an awesome reminder of how much power God has in this domain, and I realized that God granted me this gift to go out and heal other people in his name in order to lead them to him!
