My first menstrual circle as a teenager was accompanied by excruciating pain and was an unpleasant experience. So, once it is approaching, I will start crying because I knew what I was about to face. I would go through pains nonstop; I will vomit, purge, and not eat anything for those days until my period ended. I had been given all manner of native medicines, which were supposed to act as painkillers but none worked. All manner of suggestions were given and one of my friends I complained to, suggested that I should have sex because it would help, but that put fear in me because I was only 13 years old. During that period my mom would pray according to her ability but to no avail. Crying was my companion. I asked God questions like, “Why was I created a woman?” I never received an answer and I remained a woman; God’s perfect creation. It got to the point where I hated being a woman actually.
On the 14th of April 2017, I woke up to study the Gems Of Grace devotional (Page 105) on the topic: Resist The Devil. The Scriptural reference was James 4:7 which says, “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” The explanation and the Scripture thrilled me and I began to thank God because the topic, the Scripture and its explanation hit me. There Pastor Kech said something that triggered my healing, she said, “If you are a lady suffering from this, make up your mind it is not ‘normal’ and you would be on the right road to freedom…” Immediately I jumped out of my bed, called the enemy and he foolishly answered me. I said, “Look you are done in my life, I command you right now in the Name of Jesus, pack your load out of my life. See let me tell you what you don’t know: I am a child of God and I am blessed and empowered. By the power vested in me, pack your load out of my life and never come back again.” After saying this, I was filled with joy because I knew it was a done deal. My next menstrual cycle came without me feeling any pain. Glory be to God!
After some time, the foolish devil dared to come back again. On a Sunday morning after dressing up for the church, the cramps started again and I lay on my bed contemplating whether to go to church or not. I let Aunty Sarah know that I will not be going to church but she asked for my reasons and refused. She said, “No! That is a lie from the pit of hell, you will go to church.” She asked me to speak the Word, which I did. I was saying to myself that, “I have all it takes to resist the devil because the greater One lives on the inside of me. I resist the devil and he flees from me.”
I came to church that morning and I was perfectly okay, I didn’t remember I was on my period. I came back home, did the things I couldn’t do before. Since then, there has been no pain, no stress, after 10 years of being in pain. I am totally free. Glory to God because my healing had been made permanent. I have been made whole, I can now eat, do my house chores. Glory to God for my perfect healing.
I want to thank the assistant pastors for tirelessly teaching us the undiluted Word of God, I also want to thank Aunty Sarah for her encouragements, and especially thank Pastor Kech. The Word I hear from you has been my sustenance. Thank you. I love you very much.
