My Dad has been suffering quite some pains from the undetected illnesses/unclear diagnoses for the past two months. A lot of money has been spent for findings and medications.
Unbeknownst to me, this undetected illnesses had caused him trouble sleeping for months. I knew it about a week ago when he suddenly asked me to book a ticket to Penang, Malaysia. Countless Indonesians opted for this country or Singapore for medications. I didn’t say a word but a lot of questions was raised inside my head. Why all of the sudden? My dad has rarely been sick in his entire life and if he suddenly asked for this, it must be something very very serious.
Before his flight on Sunday, August 18th, he and my mom squeezed their schedule to join church prayer meeting to ask to be prayed for. During prayer, a lady with the gift of vision saw that a lot of black pieces fell off my dad’s body. She revealed it to us afterwards. The understanding is that God is using the medical team to heal my dad. It’s a comforting revelation.
Fast forward a week after, my brother and I fetched them at the airport. My parents began the conversation with the best news in life, the news of salvation. They say “You know what, 5 people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
My brother immediately led us in prayer and thanking God for what He has done. Suddenly, the atmosphere of our car turned into this praying atmosphere. My mom continued to pray after him and I continued to prayer after my mother. It was indeed a spirit-led and spirit-filled prayer. The spirit of God was so tangible that I was just balling and balling. I know it was the Holy Spirit when I said in my prayer “God, the salvation of those people is so much more important than my dad’s healing.” Those huge amount of money is not a wasted money or stolen money, it’s an investment in Your Kingdom. And You are still winning because 5 souls are won to Your Kingdom. Whatever the devil intended for harm, you always turn it into good!!! In everything YOU ARE GREAT and YOU ARE GOOD. That’s who you are God.
It was such a beautiful time in our car that we didn’t realize that 30 minutes went by in prayer.
We’ve asked for healing and it’s the truth that we don’t see healing takes place everytime. That’s why sometimes I got puzzled with all this ‘healing’ thing. I’ve read books and I’ve read the Bible on healing. There’s a lot of doctrine or books on healing but so far, no explanation given has really satisfied me.
I know that God has a valid reason when He doesn’t meet our expectation of an answer.
However, through my dad’s case, I’m reminded again to learn trust God in every situation and learn to see things from His perspective. The thing is, you can never see thing in His perspective if you don’t know really know Him. During the little stormy situations that struck my family, I never once being angry at God for not healing my dad the way I wanted it to happen. I know it to the fullest that God always gives the best to those who leaves the option to Him.
Who knew that God is going to give us a bonus of 5 souls? Isn’t like that coolest news ever?
May this verse below become the anchor to our soul in every situation.
