The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness. Psalm 41:3
Over the span of a few months I had been having some knee issues. My worship arts ministry “Boots of the Ground,” had a spiritual warfare conference in August and the stress of the event put me in so much pain it was very difficult to walk. Several people had prayed for me and I was standing in faith that God would heal me. In our Bible Study Group we had a “health tip” each week to promote Biblical healing…God’s SHALOM…being made whole. So, I was doing things physically as well to bring about healing in my knees.
This past September at a Feast of Tabernacles Celebration I was jumping and shouting and worshiping the LORD and He said to me; “You are healed.” Of course my mind said; you better not jump anymore tonight because you will pay for it in the morning. Beloved you know what? I kept right on jumping!!
About a week or so later my knee pain became very severe and started with one knee and then jumped to the other and back and forth it went. I was under attack, the enemy began to speak his lies…”you’ll end up in a wheelchair, you will not be able to flag anymore, you are finished as a worshiper!” I am sure you have had this type of thing happen to you?
Well………enough is enough! I don’t know about you but I can only listen to these lies for so long that contradicts, God’s Word. I rose up and went into my office and got out my Matteh. I grabbed it with both hands and said out loud; “THAT’S IT, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” From that point on I went into battle for my healing. I have to keep it, God said it and so it is. This past weekend I went to a ladies conference and worshiped the LORD with all my might! No enemy is going to take me out that easy! Let me encourage you here; if you are going through something, understand it is a spiritual battle and your God will fight for you. Get out your sword (the Word of God) and decree it out loud, pray and have full trust (faith) in what God’s Words says. Believe it with all your heart.
It has been a few weeks now and I am doing great and walking in healing. I still have my Matteh sitting out in my room and every time I lay eyes on it, I grab it with both hands and decree, pray and declare God’s authority and power over my body, soul & spirit. I am His as it says in;
Song of Songs 6:3a ‘I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine.
Matteh = the rod of God. It is a staff, like the one Moses carried with him. It is a symbol of God’s authority and power. (Yes, it is just wood) The purpose is that it’s a point of contact to remind us of Who our God is, and His authority in our lives.
In His Love,
