The Miracle of Unexpected Rest

During the past three month there were many local happening in the art and literary world, plus opportunities to learn, help and grow. All of these were exciting to be part of, but exhaustion reared its head. There was one more call to make before I could take the evening off. 

When the person on the other end of the phone asked about the mid-week class on “Signs, Miracles and Wonders,” joy bubbled up from within. I began to relay what I had learned, and found myself speaking in the most calm, relaxing voice about the hidden treasures revealed in Scripture -- things the instructor pointed out to us that were simply amazing! 

As I talked, peace descended upon me. I could feel my body slipping into a restful state. Every word that came out of my mouth carried complete calmness. It was like the Holy Spirit took over. I was so grateful because I was too tired to carry on a conversation without divine help. And while the Holy Spirit empowered my words with peace, I found myself resting in Christ at the same time. 

When the conversation ended, the peace continued. I went to bed and woke up the next morning feeling more rested than I’d felt in weeks. It was a welcomed miracle. Only once before, had I felt the Holy Spirit take over my conversation when I was too tired to proceed. And now HE did it again!

The Road to a Miracle Back Healing

Two weeks ago, a group of us decided to take the drive out to Cyrus Ministries in Big Rock, Illinois. Every Tuesday evening, they have a gathering for Scripture based teaching, prayer and healing. It had been a while since we were there. All of us, including the new person coming with us, were eager to step into more of Yahweh's peace, draw closer to Christ, and be blessed.

We walked in, said "Hi" to everyone, and sat down. Immediately, Rich Fick, the Director of Cyrus Ministries, turned to one of the ladies and said, "Jesus wants to heal your back!" Then he asked her, “Do you have back pain?” She said, “Yes!” He asked her to stand up and behold (look at) Jesus Christ, the One who heals. She did. And as Rich prayed for her, the back pain disappeared.

None of us who drove out in the car with her, knew that our friend had a back problem. She never told us that she suffered with back pain for the past six years. But Jesus Christ knew, and HE set her free from pain!
