I promised GOD that I would testify about this...so listen...
Yesterday, I had a piercing headache...I do not know what time it made its loud entrance into my life but suddenly, there it was! I prayed about it to no avail so I braved it, determined to work, and somehow made it through the day...
However, some time during the day I remembered a dream I had had the previous day after a very ‘earth shaking prayer watch’ with GOD. In that dream, someone I have come to recognize as my biggest enemy held one of my hair clips, which is in form of a flower, in her hands. Nonetheless, it broke in her hands as she was trying to place it in my hair...I honestly do not remember cancelling that dream (or maybe I did make a halfhearted effort at canceling) and I believe it was the source of the headache. When I remembered that dream, at around 6PM yesterday, I engaged in spiritual warfare. Now, thinking that I needed to swallow some medicine, I sent someone to buy me painkillers but she returned without them – it was divine. You see, GOD wanted me to know, without a doubt, that the headache was not a health issue but a spiritual one.
“`Wash and be cleansed’?” So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy” (2Kings 5:14).
Knowing who my enemy is and that she is Satan’s authorized master agent but also operates from a high level of satanic power made my battle a very hard one – I knew what I had to deal with. Nonetheless, this battle had to be won! Consequently, I worshipped GOD before, during, and after my shower that I decided to do the ‘Naaman way’ (from head to toe). I stood under a cold shower and prayerfully had my evening bath while engaging in warfare. By the time I was through with my shower the headache had subsided but not disappeared completely. Therefore, I continued with my prayers as I prepared for my bedtime and by the time I went to bed the headache was faint but still present. I am glad that my night was peaceful and uneventful and by the time I woke up in the morning the headache was slowly fading away but still there. Subsequently, I made it to my ‘workstation’ and began my day.
Now, as is my usual practice, this morning I stepped away from my desk and made my way to my prayer slope (Muzindalo close) that I once told you about. On the way there, I got a revelation that GOD IS BIGGER THAN MY ENEMY and that He is in fact bigger than Satan and his dark kingdom put together...close at the heels was another revelation that GOD is bigger than that headache as well – my steps quickened to Muzindalo close!
I must tell you that that changed my time of prayer completely. I began to thank GOD for my healing instead of asking Him to heal me. I believe that as I basked in the revelation of a BIG GOD, the headache found its way out!
It is unfortunate that we, sometimes, look at the vastness of our enemy and of his or her ‘weapons of warfare’ forgetting that GOD is bigger than all that put together!
“What [Or Who] are you, O mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’” (Zechariah 4:7).
Therefore, even if I had promised GOD that I would share my testimony of healing with you I also wanted to share the revelation that GOD IS BIGGER than whatever it is that magnifies itself before you – He is bigger than that mountain before you! If you get the revelation that GOD is bigger than whatever it is you are facing, the battle is won already!
“Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than any of the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage” (2Kings 5:12).
Just as I was inserting the relevant scripture above, GOD spoke and said that someone reading this will be asked to do something beneath him or her and he or she will hesitate to do so. Nevertheless, GOD says that you should hearken to the voice of the Prophet because therein lies your healing.
GOD also says that, just like Naaman, the Prophet will reject your efforts at ‘appreciating’ him – keep your money. This will be the sign that GOD spoke.
