praying for healing of migraine

27 08 2008

Yesterday I started getting a migraine headache in the morning.  Sometimes I’ll take BC Powder for it, which sometimes helps if I do that soon enough and then take it easy for a while.  But I didn’t want to take any medicine this time.  I don’t like taking medicine.  I decided I was just going to trust God to heal me.  I’m not saying that you can’t believe for healing while taking medicine.  I’m not sure about that.  But I didn’t want to in this instance.

I spent some time praying, then worshiped God while listening to a CD.  Then I went to a scheduled lunch with some friends.  One guy I talked to was having some struggles with his faith, so the thought came to my mind that if I tell him what I’m doing and I didn’t get healed, it could damage his faith even more.  But I remembered that part of believing is taking steps of faith.  It was putting God on the line here, but if I really believed He was going to heal me, then I would have no problem speaking it.  So I told him.  It was also a step of faith to not take anything, because once a migraine gets going, no medicine that I’ve tried will stop it — only divine healing (which has happened before).  So if God didn’t heal me, then my afternoon would be ruined.

As you might guess, God healed me, and the migraine went completely away.  There’s no other explanation.  I’ve gotten migraines throughout my whole life, so I know how they typically work for me.  And they don’t just stop on their own.

Of course I’m not saying this means I’m anything special, that I prayed for healing and received it.  Well, except for the fact that to God I am special.  But so are you, just as much so.  All I did was trust God and take a few steps in faith, and God did the hard part : the physical healing.  He wants to do the same for you, if you need it.

God is so awesome!  I’m so thankful that He cares for us despite our flaws and shortcomings.  He is so patient and merciful and loving!
