Where was my faith? by Elaine Davenport (Saturday, September 27, 2008)

Heb. 11:2
NOW faith is being sure of what we hope for and being certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

FAITH MAY BE ONE OF THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD WORDS THIS WORLD HAS EVER SEEN!

There are a lot of people out there who believe that a person can’t be healed or cured. In fact, I have no statistics to prove it but I believe a majority of people who get a bad diagnosis from the doctor accept it readily and believe it.

HAVING FAITH JUST MEANS THAT YOU ARE WILLING TO WAIT ON GOD TO HANDLE SOMETHING BIGGER OR SMALLER THAN YOU.

I can’t evaluate the world if I’m honest but, I can evaluate myself.

Ten years ago, I was hit by a car. I was driving my own car at the time. Yet, even though I was in a big fine new car; my shoulder was broken. No one can ever describe the pain to you. I tore my rotator cuff. It feels as though someone put an ax to your arm and separated it from your body. Even after three trips to physical therapy the pain visited on a constant basis almost every night resulting in my having to constantly turn over; thus disrupting my sleep.

During those ten years; God healed me of many afflictions that I asked Him about, but never my shoulder pain. All I had to do was ask and expect. I never thought of it because subconsciously I just thought the pain would never go away. That wasn’t faith and I didn’t realize it.

Two weeks ago, God sent me a remedy for my shoulder…but I had to take a step of faith to believe that it would cure my frozen shoulder.

I woke up last night and realized that my shoulder no longer ached. I was so happy that I couldn’t go back to sleep. I gave praise and Glory To God! I stay in a prayerful state and yet in the natural; I missed it. Wow! That’s my testimony.

Where’s your faith? Is there anything that you’re overlooking?
