The power of a testimony

Testimonies have spiritual power!

I was recently sharing a testimony of someone who I prayed for years ago who was healed in an unusual way.

Then the unexpected happened right in front of me.

This week you’ll see the power of giving and receiving testimonies.

To live a transformed life you need to give and receive testimonies of God’s faithfulness.

Now I want to hear from you

    So interesting! I have symptoms from a car accident. The person was trying to commit suicide and almost stole my unborn baby from me. I immediately knew I had to forgive and I chose to right away because I knew my spiritual well being depended on it. What I recently have come across in the last week is unforgiveness towards institutions like the insurance company, and the church. I feel like church people avoided me because PTSD made me edgy and the insurance company ‘nickeled and dimed” me. I have experienced so much pain in church that it is hard to forgive, but the direction of forgiveness is nebulous when dealing with institutions!
    I didn’t know I had unforgiveness towards institutions til about a week ago.

    Hi Dr Grant..my mom went home to be with the Lord three weeks ago and I did not realise how much anger and unforgiveness I had toward a sibling of mine who had been very dishonest in her dealings with mom..In helping mom to make her first will, she tried to steal half of everything for herself,,mom found out later after she sent me a copy of her will and went back to the lawyer with this same sibling whom she trusted to do the right thing, except this time my sister lied about the value of mom’s property, so she ended up getting about one hundred thousand dollars for herself, which was part of our inheritance that was supposed to be split evenly amongst my siblings and myself..As you can imagine, it’s been very hard, I am in the process of letting it go and trusting the Lord to help me release all of that poison from my system..I can honestly say that I have much more peace than I did last week when I was holding on to the bitterness and anger..spoke to a christian conselor yesterday and he helped me to see things much more clearly..God bless ..

    Some time in the 1990’s I developed a heel spur on one of my feet. Since my mother had experienced severe pain in her heels I began to wonder if I had inherited that condition. I decided that it wouldn’t hurt not to declare that possibility and instead to declare that I was not “receiving” it.I took a number of treatments for the pain which helped but did not get rid of it. Then in 1996 I joinedYWAM for the better part of that year. The places we went required considerable walking and some time during those months the pain left, never to return.

    MY TESTIMONY IS DRAMATIC. I SAY THAT BECAUSE IT INVOLVED 4 LIVES THAT WERE CHANGED; IN MY CASE, DRASTICALLY. WHEN I WAS 21, I GOT INTO A PICKUP TRUCK WHILE INTOXICATED . I SAT ON THE BENCH OF THE OPEN CAB WITH A CLOSE FRIEND . THE OTHER FELLOW WHO WAS IN THE BACK WAS SITTING ON A BUNCH OF OLD TIRES. THE DRIVER, A FRIEND, DROVE THE TRUCK WITHOUT ANY PASSENGERS BESIDE HIM . IT WAS WINTER BUT I DIDN’T FEEL COLD BUT THE DRIVER WHO WAS GOING 75 KM/HR. SKIDDED ON SOME ICE AND CRASHED INTO A CONCRETE WALL AT WELLINGTON & YOUNG STREETS. I HIT MY HEAD ON THE CONCRETE WALL AND SO DID MY CLOSE FRIEND. WE WERE RUSHED TO THE EMERGENCY AND THEY OPERATED ON MY HEAD IMMEDIATELY. THERE WERE 17 FRACTURES AND MY FOREHEAD WAS CRUSHED IN . I FELL INTO A COMA FOR 3 1/2 MONTHS AND HAD TO BE OPERATED ON A 2ND TIME BECAUSE OF CEREBRAL FLUID PRESSING ON MY ENLARGED HEAD. THEY TOLD MY FAMILY I HAD A 50/50 CHANCE OF SURVIVING THE 2ND SURGERY . THE NEUROSURGEONS TOLD MY PARENTS I WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL AND NEVER BE ABLE TO WORK . THEY WERE PREPARING MY PARENTS BY TELLING THEM I WOULD BE IN SOME KIND OF ‘VEGETABLE ‘ STATE. HOWEVER, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE PRAYED FERVENTLY FOR ME AND I LEFT THE HOSPITAL AFTER SIX MONTHS TIME . ALTHOUGH I HAE MANY DISABILITIES , I RETURNED TO SCHOOL (COLLEGE) AND WORKED FOR 12 YEARS FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS AN EMPLOYMENT COUNSELLOR . GOD HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS ! AND BY THE WAY , I GOT “SAVED” AFTER I WAS RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL IN 1975 , AND I’VE BEEN A BORN AGAIN FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST SINCE THEN ! PRAISES BE TO OUR GOD !!

    Tuesday I rode with my daughter and three small grandkids as far as Roanoke, VA so she’d have help. We stopped at my friend’s house and then after my daughter left to go the last 3 hours to Richmond, my friend took me to catch a Megabus back to Knoxville). We hurried, but missed the bus so I ended up staying at my friend’s house overnight. As soon as I knew i missed the bus,God gave me a glimpse of a dream I had one time where this happened and I told her “This is God-ordained”. Her son had committed suicide several years ago and she was still reeling with grief. The next morning as we prayed, I kept hearing God say to ask her if she had broken an unholy soul tie with her son. I did and she hadn’t but she felt she could do that and prayed breaking that soul tie and releasing him to the Lord. We dealt with some lies she was believing as well and when we finished, the heavy grief was gone. She was able to feel joy again and said it felt like this huge weight had been lifted from her shoulders! She was even able to get rid of his toiletries that she had left sitting on the dresser in the room he slept in for the past three years and a devotional that she had sitting on the dresser opened to that days date, she moved it forward to today and read Psalm 34 from there! God had such a plan for that time and I still rejoice at her healing from that grief!

    I got a son who is 20 yrs old. he is my 1st son,he is so dear to me he was like a prince in my eyes, actually he look so young and clean most of the people think he is about 15 or 17 yrs old but for me is more younger like always my little boy.this half year of his schooling he was attacked of depression and got problem with his classmates then he became more uneasy, become thin, angry all the time, closing his room playing computer the whole time ,not eating, smoking, doesnt care others.not returning the books he borrowed, not paying the trains tikets when he go out, so there are some penalty bills i need to pay and i saw he was also start to smoke other things.one night he said he cannot feel asleep,he is walking and walking in the middle of the night to make the story short, he was paranoid and stay in the hospital for about 2 weeks. i was crying,i was sad, i dont know what to do, i was out of mind, i got pain in the stomach, i was praying and calling jesus but it seems nothing happen. i feel i was alone,i´m becoming angry in life and one day i found a book in my shelves the title was how to measure your life.this book is talking to me ,another level of christianity life and it give me hope and did make me more nearer to God. i was dead but God bring me up again, he want me to give him the problem. sometimes there are things in life we do not understand why, but we need to stop just trust him. my son was start going to school again, he still under medication but i trust JESUS the source of my life,i give back to him everything, and i cannot live everyday without Jesus.i was transform and understand life better¨and better everyday.

    Yes, Of course I have a testimony! I thank God everyday that he keeps us alive and well, so we can live a long lives and to remind ourselves: Jesus stated I come to tell that I come for the sick because He is the great healer, of body, mind, and your soul, to let your spirit shine by His Power and nobody can give life but though The Holy Spirit which He freely gives to each and everyone of the whole people of the world, to accept by personal invitation! That why we are at peace and know that God loves us and looks after us! John & Claudia

    I was healed and continue to be healed by my fathers testimony. He was (he died 25 years ago) a recovered alcoholic and born again christian.
    I am told that not only sharing my testimony, but sharing my fathers testimony has touched many.

    Yes, I do have testimonies. One that I praise God for is.When I was a teen and my friends asked me to go swimming with them in lake Ontario.The night before I was to go swimming I had a problem with my back. I told my friend that I wouldnt be able to go because of my back problem .She said that I was just chicken,so I went swimming .To make it short, I would have drowned if God didnt send his angels to get me up out of the water.I did have a cut etc on my back that was bleeding and I still have a scar from it today.I also think that God was trying to stop me and my friends fom going swimming that day,and I should have took the hint(back problem)and not gone.God ,through His grace saved my life any ways. Praise God .
