His Love Never Fails
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.
Let me share with you a testimony of how believing in God’s love, grace, and goodness brought healing to one precious lady in Singapore. Connie was diagnosed with a tumor on the pituitary gland in her brain. The MRI scan showed that the tumor was a macro-growth of about 1.5cm.
She was presented with two options: immediate surgery to remove the tumor (the risk of surgery being a 20 percent failure rate and the possibility of going blind in one eye) or medication. She was told that if she decided on medication, it would take a long time to work, with most tumors shrinking only after a year or so. This is Connie’s story:
Pastor Prince, what the doctors said about the tumor was devastating news to me and my family. I remember telling myself that if I were to lose my eyesight, I would not want to live anymore.
It was during this time that my family resolved to commit the whole thing to God, to trust and rely on Him entirely and pray for healing. We opted to go with taking medication.
Despite wanting to believe in God’s love and goodness toward me, I was constantly plagued with questions such as, “Does God love me anymore? Does He even care? Is He punishing me for something wrong that I’ve done? Should I just grit my teeth and accept the situation?”
It was only when a colleague and friend at my workplace started passing me your sermon CDs to listen to that I was reminded once again of my Savior’s love, grace, and goodness toward me. I believe that as I listened to the Word preached via the CDs, my body began healing.
Within a month of the medication, the level of prolactin in my blood decreased and the balance of chemicals in my body became stable. After two more months, the MRI scan showed that the tumor had shrunk to half its original size. I was very encouraged and, most importantly, I felt confident and secure that my God was doing His work of healing in my body, that He loves and cares for me enough to know that I was hurting and to do something about it.
The best news came when the MRI scan showed that the macro-tumor was GONE! The doctor was amazed and kept saying that in most cases, even when a tumor had shrunk by so much, there would still be remnants of tumor cells. But in my case, the tumor was completely GONE, with no trace of any tumor cells at all!
No words can describe how grateful and thankful I am to God. I know that it is God who has healed me. But what’s more important is the fact that I stand tall as a child of God, and I know that I am the righteousness of God because of what Jesus has done on the cross for me. Knowing that I am deeply loved and cared for by God makes me so secure in my relationship with God.
I want to give all the glory and praise to God. I am what I am today—healed, whole, and at peace—only because of the preaching of the gospel of grace!
My friend, if Connie had believed that God was punishing her for some sin, she would have just gritted her teeth, accepted her sickness as punishment, and never sought God for healing. But praise God that He brought light into Connie’s situation and showed her how much He loved her!
If you want to see the power of God’s grace operating in every dimension of your life, I challenge you to believe in His love, His gift of righteousness, and His forgiveness. There is power to heal now if you would turn to and rest in His finished work and in His love for you. His love never fails!
