In 2009, I had suffered numerous physical injuries due to excessive weight lifting.  I was such a mess.  I was in so much pain.  My body felt as it were 100 years old, even though I was only 40 at the time.

Here is a list of the 5 injuries I had in 2008-2009:

  1. Excruciating tennis elbows. It hurt a lot just to brush my teeth.  (An orthopedic surgeon told me to go home because there was nothing he could do for me).
  2. Awful heel spurs.  Every step I took felt like I was stepping on a nail.
  3. Worn out and strained wrists
  4. Consistent lower back problems
  5. A knee injury that didn’t even heal correctly after surgery.

I recall saying to my spiritual mentor that I wish Jesus could walk by so I could touch the hem of His robe and be healed, just as many people experienced during Jesus’ ministry on earth.  My mentor replied, “That is still available to us today through our faith.”  I was baffled because nobody had ever told me that before.

Upon hearing that I purchased 3 books from Kenneth Hagin Ministries that were written by Kenneth E. Hagin.  They were:

  • “Exceedingly Growing Faith”
  • “The Healing Anointing”
  • “Bible Healing Study Course”

Upon reading the books and getting council from my mentor, it was revealed to me that God promises us healing through faith in His promises as outlined in the Bible.  Some of them include:

Proverbs 4:20-22 – New Living Translation (NLT)
My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body(or all their flesh).

Mark 11:22-25 – New Living Translation (NLT)
Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God.  I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.  I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.  But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.

Mark 5:25-34 – New Living Translation (NLT)
A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding.  She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse.  She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe.  For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”  Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition.

Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my robe?”

His disciples said to him, “Look at this crowd pressing around you. How can you ask, ‘Who touched me?’”

But he kept on looking around to see who had done it.  Then the frightened woman, trembling at the realization of what had happened to her, came and fell to her knees in front of him and told him what she had done.  And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”

Matthew 8:17 – New Living Translation (NLT)
This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said,

“He took our sicknesses
and removed our diseases.”

 Isaiah 53:5 – New Living Translation (NLT)
But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed(or by His stripes you were healed).

Psalm 103:1-3 – New Living Translation (NLT)
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.

Matthew 8:17 – New Living Translation (NLT)
This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said,

“He took our sicknesses
and removed our diseases.”

1 Peter 2:24 – New Living Translation (NLT)
He personally carried our sins
in his body on the cross
so that we can be dead to sin
and live for what is right.
By his wounds( or stripes)
you are healed.

Jeremiah 30:17 – New Living Translation (NLT)
I will give you back your health
and heal your wounds,” says the Lord.”

James 5:13-16 – New Living Translation (NLT)
Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises.  Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.  Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

So I started to follow the teachings of Kenneth Hagin and began the process of developing my faith to receive God’s divine healings.  I wrote out each of the above Scriptures on flashcards/notecards and began to carry them around with me.  I pulled them out time and again until I had them memorized and they were deep into my heart.

Then I started to SPEAK healing into my life as well.  When people asked me how I was holding up, I would say, “Great!  I was healed when Jesus went to the cross.”  You see, Jesus went to the cross so we could be healed as well as saved.  Then I said(and believed), “Even though my healings are not instantaneous, I know they are manifesting in my flesh as I continue to BELIEVE.”

So I continued reading, meditating, speaking, and believing that I was healed by God.  And after 3 months of diligent faith-building, I received healing for all of my 5 injuries overnight!  Praise be to God!


If I was to tell you that I need you to run 5 miles, you might not be able to do so today.  But if you train, you will be able to run 5 miles after you have developed your muscles and stamina.  The same goes for faith.  We can train our “faith muscles” to believe for all that God promises in the Bible.  When we train persistently, healing(and other promises you are believing for) will come.

There is a flip side to training.  When you quit working out & running, you will lose your ability to run 5 miles.  Similarly, when we forsake training our faith muscles, we will lose our ability to appropriate God’s healing into our lives.  That has happened to me a couple of times because I allowed myself to get too busy with work and other responsibilities. Living life with so many responsibilities makes it difficult to MAKE time for God.  Let me tell you that it is so worth it, especially when it comes to salvation and healing.

My mentor received complete healing in 1 year for ruptured disks that doctors had given up on.  I received my healings in 3 months after putting in close to 5 hours per day.  I was desperate!

Since then, I have had many smaller victories for healing in my life.  Whenever SYMPTOMS of a cold occur, I don’t say that “I am sick.”  No, I rebuke the symptoms in the name of Jesus while SPEAKING those healing Scriptures and BELIEVING that I am healed.  Usually within the hour, the symptoms subside and disappear.  Praise God!

Roadblocks to Healing:

There are many roadblocks to healing.  I will expound on a two of them; sin and doubt.  Sin blocks God’s blessings from coming into our lives.  These sins could be unforgiveness, pride, or any sin that God’s Word forbids.  After receiving my initial healings, twice I failed to receive my healings for a thrown out back and twisted pelvis.  For weeks I could barely sit in a chair and each morning I had to hold onto the bed for 2-3 minutes before letting go to ensure that I would not collapse.  One time I was harboring unforgiveness and the other time I allowed myself to be prideful about something.  In both cases, when I realized where I had fallen short, I asked God for forgiveness and repented of those sins.  The healings then came overnight as I jumped out of bed the following morning fully healed !  Thank you Lord!

I have met a great number of Christians that get offended when I tell them that the Lord healed me.  It is unfortunate that they will not believe because of something some person told them in their past or present.  Perhaps they were told that God doesn’t heal like that anymore.  Perhaps they were told that we can’t stand on the promises of God.  Or perhaps the reason you are struggling to receive their healing is because  you still have doubt in your heart.  I have heard it said that doubt is the thief of God’s greater blessings.  A huge part of building your faith includes getting rid of your doubt both in your mind in the words you speak.  Actually, don’t end your prayer for healing with”…if it be Your will.”  That is a prayer of doubt.  It is God’s will for you to be healed as I have shown you in the Bible.  Also, don’t ask God for healing.  Thank Him that He has already provided it for us 2000 years ago when He went to the cross.

It’s up to us to develop our faith for it and BELIEVE that healing belongs to us. I did, and I have received many miraculous healings as a result. At the time of this writing, I am not in the “best of shape” regarding my faith for healing. Over the past few years I have allowed myself to get too busy with the things of this world and have not devoted enough time for “training” and maintaining my faith for healing. In other words, I am not currently able to “run 5 miles” so to speak. So I am now recommitting myself to getting “back into shape” so I may cast out IN FAITH whatever the enemy is trying to put on me whether it be a sore throat, stomach issues, or even cancer. Glory to God!

I would like to encourage you to develop your faith for healing.  Read books, listen to You-tube sermons, etc.  I would compare this to black belt training for kung-fu.  You don’t start with the black belt.  First you start at the beginning (white belt) and move up as you develop & improve in your skills.  The same goes with your relationship with God.  Be persistent and you will see results.  The way we receive from God is through faith.  And for us to receive BIG THINGS(like healings) from God, we need to have BIG FAITH!

Please feel free to contact me with questions, council and suggested materials so you too will receive miraculous healing from Jesus Christ our Lord.

God bless you.
