This past week, I found myself surrounded in doctors when my mom was rushed to the hospital. We had no idea what was happening and soon found out that it was very serious. As more and more tests were taken, fear tried to persuade me that she wasn’t going to make it. I had a choice to make; either give into the fear or start pleading the blood.
In order for me to take control of the feelings pressuring me to make the wrong choices, I sent a Prayer Call to all of our family and friends on Facebook. I needed help and in a BIG WAY! As soon as I hit the enter button, I immediately felt the weight of the world lift off my shoulders.
Right before mom went into surgery, we prayed to the Great Physician; knowing that God is our healer and protector in all situations. The surgery went well, however, mom had an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. She found herself unable to breathe and shivering non-stop. This was not a normal reaction and we came very close to losing her. Now, during this time, I could have panicked. I could have given up. Heck, I could have even started yelling at God. But, something very different happened instead.
While I’m watching the hospital staff do everything they could to save mom, I found myself speaking in tongues. I just opened my mouth and uttered whatever it was the Holy Spirit knew I needed. The more I spoke, the worse mom got. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks…THE DEVIL IS A LIAR, don’t believe what you see.
Fervently, I kept praying in tongues asking the Holy Spirit to take over the situation because I had no clue what was going on, nor what mom needed. All of a sudden, mom was breathing and calming down. It was like the angels surrounded her in God’s amazing healing power. Within 24 hours, she did a miraculous 360 degree turnaround. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever encountered.
1 Corinthians 14:2 “For those who speak in a tongue do not speak to other people but to God; for nobody understands them, since they are speaking mysteries in the Spirit.”
Miracles do still happen! And I’m here today to tell you that no matter what you encounter and no matter what you see, God is still in the miracle business. He is still intervening in ways we can’t comprehend.
So, the next time you find yourself under fire and nothing appears to be going right, speak in tongues and watch God’s healing power come to life in your situation. For He truly is a Loving, Protecting, and Caring Father!
