I absolutely love to hear stories of how God works in the lives of people. It’s so encouraging because I believe that if He did it there, then He can do it here. And when we talk about the good things that God has done, we release more wind on the testimony to do it again. We get to ride the draft of it.
That being said, I want to repeat a testimony that I heard recently. A woman with stage four cancer, in a wheelchair, went to watch her grandson be part of a children’s worship conference. The conference was all about teaching kids to press into the Spirit of God and release them into worship, in all kinds of ways.
One way the kids were learning to worship was with flags. His banner over me is love. At one point, the kids spontaneously began to march in a flag-waving parade around the room. To look on it, it just looked cute, but the power of their act of praise was enormous.
The power of God fell on the woman in the wheelchair and she felt warmth flow down from the top of her head all the way to her toes. Her cancer was instantly healed, and documented at the local hospital. The children were not involved in a healing ministry. They were released to worship, and their praise touched God so powerfully that He could not help Himself and healed someone.
That is such a wonderful example of how powerful praise and worship really is. I want to be part of that, because God is that good.
