God’s Power And How YOU Can Be An Encouragement


My friend Lisa lives with chronic pain. She is young in the Lord but mature in her faith. She is one of several people God has placed in my life to encourage, inspire, and humble me. Please pray for God’s healing power in Lisa’s life. She has an amazing testimony and I am so glad God crossed our paths.

“And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.”  Luke 6L31 (NKJV)

As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17 (NKJV)

From Lisa….

God’s power.
Very very bad MRI….had to straighten my leg for both which pinches my sciatic nerve. I’ve been able to bend my knees before but this place does things different & they were the ones who could get it done the fastest. And so I screamed at the top of my lungs the second she laid that leg down, and she freaked, saying I should re-schedule with sedation.”I can’t!”. And for the next 45 minutes this lady heard me calling on the Lord my God. And I honestly could not even bear 2 minutes so I was screaming “Father God!” I began to scream for help, for His might, His power, His strength. My screams turned to tears as I began reciting every scripture He has written on my heart—they were all His promises to get me through anything with Jesus Christ.
Then my tears turned to songs as I began to sing my favorite worship songs. I even sang songs I didn’t know the words to so I made them up. And as I praised Him, I can honestly say there were moments I had no feeling at all as if my leg was numb or asleep. But as soon as I would think about my leg or stop singing, I would feel the pain. I know this happened to Peter when he walked on the water. Just as soon as he took his eyes off the Lord, he sunk. And that’s the way it was for me also–a complete impossibility unless I kept any and all of my mind, heart and soul upon the Lord.
He was like a Power house to plug into, a mightiness so strong that I felt my hands could have just touched the walls of the MRI, and they would have cracked and crumbled. Yes,just like Sampson when he brought down the temple. To have this free access, to be able to tap into a zillion watts of voltage is a great gift from God and today being another opportunity for the Lord to prove what He can and will do for me when I call on Him. God came through for me, and He will do the same for you in your time of need. It is your faith that will activate His power.
