Imagine this scene. Now imagine yourself doing this in utter desperation, as if your life depended on it. Would you do the same? Are you exercising your faith with action?
We are a broken people full of affliction with pain inflicted on us intentionally or unintentionally. I held on to my personal issues (afflictions) for years and sought help from many different human resources. No human being could help me at all. I became anxious about my situation; I felt alone. It was not a good place to be. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom and became desperate, that I wholeheartedly sought the Lord, my Deliverer, my Jesus. Only then was I ready to surrender those afflictions in faith. It was not instantaneous, but life-changing healing had nonetheless occurred. My experiences at BLD have allowed me to be give testimony to my faith in action. There are new miracles daily. I promised myself not to go back, but to press into Jesus and to “Go in peace and be cured of my [your] affliction” just as Jesus said. Amen.
