“Through it all, I have learnt to trust in Jesus. I have learnt to trust in God. Through it all, through it all, I have learnt to depend upon His Word.”
I can imagine myself in the Book of Job where the Lord asked Satan, “Have you considered my daughter Bridget, that she truly loves Me and will do anything I ask her to do in my Word? Have you realized she has never missed Church services even once for the past six years or more because her love for Me will not make her stay home?” Then Satan replied “it’s because you have put a hedge around her and her home. Just remove the hedge around her and let me put affliction on her and see if she will not miss church services and stay at home? Her love for You will then be tested.”
The Lord permitted the devil to put an affliction on me somewhere in August, I bled heavily for some time but by the grace of God, during one of our “Who Art Thou O Mountain,” God touched and healed me completely.
I wrote a testimony to thank the Lord but that made the devil mad. In early October, I started bleeding heavily again and this time, very heavily accompanied with clots (worse than before). I decided to see my gynaecologist, after bleeding continuously for one month. The doctor asked for a scan which revealed there was a growth in my abdomen so the doctor asked that we returned to the hospital the following day for another scan and if possible surgery. My husband fasted and prayed before going to the hospital the following day. The gynaecologist, after doing the second scan said the growth was not there and there was absolutely nothing in my womb. He then gave me some medications and said it could be menopause since I am in my early forties.
I went home trusting and believing God for a complete healing. All this while, I had been bleeding heavily and with clots. I made sure I took my medication religiously because the prophet said medication is also Divine healing.
My brothers and sisters, I went through this heavy bleeding with clots for 3 continuous months and all this while, I could not stay at home and always wanted to be in His presence. I couldn’t just imagine myself staying home whilst church was going on. I, sometimes, felt so weak but the Lord had been my strength.
In early December, my daughter Angel, fell very sick and was near death but the Angel of the Lord was there. I was also feeling very sick then and was with her at the hospital. My test revealed I was very anaemic and that was the cause of my chest pain and severe headache. By God’s grace, I got better a d I knew it was the Lord who touched me. All this while, I never missed church service for once. We had to leave the hospital to church and then back to the hospital to continue our drip. My husband also fell sick after we were discharged from the hospital.
On 31st December, 2017, during the “all-night” service, whilst prayer was ongoing, Pastor anointed my forehead and I felt something within me. Just then, I felt like vomiting. I quickly went outside to vomit a white substance though I was expecting to have vomited the food I ate that evening. I met brother Walter and he said “Oh Mrs. Idun the devil is trying to worry you.” But I said “no, the Lord is taking something out of me.” After the “all-night” service, when I got home, I realized that the heavy bleeding with clots had ceased. I then understood why the woman with the issue of blood was healed when she touched the hem of the Lord’s garment and virtue left the Lord. It takes just a touch from the Master to make us well.
As I write this testimony, on this 10th day of March, 2018, to the glory of God, the heavy bleeding with clots has ceased. My health has been restored by my Lord Jesus Christ. My children and husband are in perfect health.
The more the devil and his agents try to cause us harm, the closer they draw us to our Lord. He that is in us, is indeed greater than he that is in the world.
We thank God for protecting us, healing us, providing for us, and constantly keeping our enemies under our feet. May His Holy Name be praised.
