The Lord Still Answers And Jesus Still Heals!






(Psalm 3:4 CEV – I pray to You, and You answer from Your sacred hill.)

The AMPC version of today’s focal verse says, “With my voice I cry to The Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!”

For me, it was in that selah moment: the pausing to serenely and intently reflect upon those words that truly displayed The Lord’s goodness towards me.

So, today, I just want to share on the goodness of The Lord, how He knows all things, and how He deeply cares about and is so intricately involved in every single detail of our lives. Or in my case, how He had given me the answer to a prayer that I had not even prayed yet.

I turned 34 on my birthday which was a little over a couple of weeks ago now. That morning, I was in worship and just sitting with The Lord and I asked Him to give me one verse to focus on for the month. Psalm chapter 3, verse 4 was the verse that He spoke to me.

After reading that verse, I was just in awe because I had prayed and He immediately answered which was what the verse that He had spoken to me to focus on said in a very literal sense.

My birthday was April 4th, which was on a Thursday. On that following Tuesday, I woke up with this unexpected pain in the bottom of my left foot. The pain reminded me of the same pain that I used to get from tendonitis years ago when I played sports. My foot was tender and it was almost like you feel this pulling/tearing going on inside of it.

Well, if you know me, then you know that I am a lover of essential oils and the Queen of holistic remedies. LOL! So, I rubbed some peppermint oil on it which made it feel better instantly and I went on about my day.

However, by that night around bedtime it started to bother me again. And when I woke up the next morning, the pain was worse than it was the previous day, so much so that it caused me to walk with a bit of a limp. Again, I put peppermint oil on it, but this time there was still this nagging pain that never went away. And so, I just pushed through and endured it all throughout that day.

It wasn’t until my time of prayer that night that The Lord reminded me of the verse that He had given me to focus on.

I mean, I had prayed about everything under that sun. I had prayed for myself, my family, my friends, etc… but for some reason I never prayed about the pain in my foot.

After I had finished praying, I was lying on the sofa in stillness just basking in The Lord’s Presence and I heard Him say, “Why haven’t you asked Me to heal you?”

Of course, I knew instantly that He was referencing the pain in my foot. And it was in that moment that I remembered Psalm 3:4 — I pray and He answers! It was profound, yet as simple as that.

I took a moment to reflect upon the promise of Psalm 3:4 and then I sat up, I laid both of my hands on my foot, and I said, “Lord, I ask in Jesus’ name that all of the pain in my foot would be gone and that You would heal it completely and restore to how You divinely intended for it to operate. Amen.” 

As soon as I finished praying, all of the pain was completely gone and I haven’t experienced any pain or issues since!

I share all of this with you guys for three reasons:

  1. ) I had prepared something totally different to share with you all this Sunday, but The Lord wanted me to share this testimony and I always want to be obedient to what He’s asking of me.
  2. ) I wanted you to be encouraged in that fact that The Lord listens and He answers!
  3. ) The truth and promise of today’s focal verse is not just for me, but for every single one of you as well.

And so, today, I leave you guys with this eternal promise and timeless truth: THE LORD STILL ANSWERS AND JESUS STILL HEALS!!!

“Ask Me anything in My name, and I will do it for you! – Jesus (John 14:14 TPT)
