17 So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).
James 2:17 (AMP)
Armed with his “health package” the young pre-teenager was ready to go back to school. On the day he was to leave, a repeat test result showed that his blood sugar had risen to 8.6mmol/l. They called on Pastor Nkechi again before he left for school and she made pronouncements of his healing on the phone with his parents laying their hands on him. Thereafter, he went back to school by faith.
While in boarding school, he used his devotional daily and said his faith confessions at every opportunity, sometimes up to 10 times a day. His walkman was kept with the boarding patron, so he went to listen to the healing tape during break periods. What admirable discipline and focus for a pre-teenager to have. The high blood sugar was symptomatic of a diabetic condition so after the initial test his diet had been changed when he was at home and he had reduced his carbohydrate intake. At this point though, revelation truth had come to the young lad and so in his own words, “I knew I had been healed so I started eating those things I was not supposed to eat while continuing my healing confessions.”
After a month, his parents came to visit him in school and checked his blood sugar level and it had dropped to 5.5mmol/l which was normal. Everyone was excited and grateful to God. He continued to confess the Word and act on the Word. When he went home on holidays, it had dropped even further to 4.4mmol/l. Praise God, he has been healed ever since (over one year now), he eats everything, he does not urinate so often anymore and he does not get tired easily, either!
Friend, know that whatever God does is forever. Nothing can be added to it and nothing can be taken from it. Learn to act on the Word of God. If you don’t act on the Word, when you have a headache, cold, or fever, then you won’t act effectively on the Word, if you are told you have cancer. You may die before your time. There’s an extent to which I, or any other minister can help you.
Confession: I cultivate the discipline of acting on God’s Word, irrespective of the symptoms.
