faith-isFaith isn’t believing for something hard enough until you make it happen.  Faith is believing that you already have what God has promised you.

From the time I was about 16, (I’m 39 now) I was having severe kidney infections at least twice a year.  The last one I had was so bad that they wanted to do an x-ray.  The film showed one of my kidneys was about 75% smaller than the other because of all the infections. The doctor said it was possible that I may lose all function of that kidney.  They gave me some antibiotics and sent me home.

Not long after I had received that report, I was at church and I could feel a kidney infection coming on.  I remember wanting to get out of the sanctuary as soon as the service ended.  However, I stayed in there worshiping instead.  During that time, a lady walked up to the front of the church and said someone was having problems with their kidneys. I knew that’s why I was still there and went straight up to her.  She prayed for my kidney and I had no doubt I was healed. There was no physical sign to show my healing, but I knew in my heart it was finished.  That was 9 years ago and I haven’t had a single kidney infection since! Praise God!

Sometimes when I begin to have a little pain in that area, I’ll think, “uh oh”….then I am instantly reminded that I was healed of that, and the pain goes away.

I’ve finally realized though that my kidneys weren’t healed just 9 years ago.  My healing took place over 2014 years ago.  I just didn’t exercise my faith and believe it until that day.

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”Hebrews 11:1
