God did a wonderful thing for one of my co-workers. Her name is Deon and she lived at home in New Orleans with her mother and father while recovering from a divorce. Her father was very dear to her and was suffering from severe diabetes. Well, whenever I would call the New Orleans branch, she and I would always get into long discussions about Christ in our lives.
Well, one day she announced she had to take her father to the doctor for a foot amputation. For months, his foot was getting blacker and blacker, due to the lack of blood circulation. The doctors were concerned about gangrene, but had at last made the decision to cut the foot off.
I had an opportunity to talk to Deon and speak faith into her to believe that there was nothing too difficult for God. I told her there was another way and that was to receive God's promise for healing. All God needed was our faith and the understanding that it was all accomplished already at the cross. God is waiting with baited breath for us to believe what His Word says and speak the end from the beginning so He can bless us.
I asked her if her father was a Christian who believed in the healing power of Jesus (a rightful heir). She said he believed and that she would sit down to speak faith into her father and agree in prayer with him and our Bible study group that God had healed his leg at the cross. That night, our assembly prayed and asked God to give them the needed faith to "BELIEVE". We spoke to the mountain of infirmity and commanded it to go.
The following day, she went to the hospital and her dad was in his hospital gown in the room, preparing for the operation. Deon had prayed with her father the night before and that morning. Later that day, I got a fax from Deon that read, "Bob, for the first time in my life I have seen a miracle of God. While waiting in the room with my father at the hospital, the circulation returned to my father's foot right before my very eyes. The blood flowed in, the skin turned pink and all the dead, black part of the foot became restored. The doctors sent my father home and cancelled the surgery!!!"
Now isn't that just like God?! PRAISE GOD. All the promises are "yea"!
