A Moment of Clarity 

“I was just a Christian on cruise control, rolling along with whatever came my way. I loved God and knew He loved me, but I thought I was here to just work on myself, always trying to live up to His expectations.”

Ever since she was a little girl, Melanie Davis struggled with severe allergies to all sorts of things—dust, weeds, dog dander…you name it! Even with a daily routine of capsules, Melanie found it difficult just to breathe and sleep. “I kept everyone awake at night,” recalls Melanie, “and that June [2007], it was particularly bad. The whites of my eyes were swollen, so much so that they covered part of my pupils. I spent my days in a fog because of how bad the allergies were, and it didn’t seem like things would ever change.”

Sitting in the back of the room with her tissue box in hand, Melanie spent the first night of the 2007 Summer Family Bible Conference trying not to fall asleep. Miserable and full of antihistamine, she listened as Andrew began telling a story about a very young girl who was laying her hands on people and seeing them healed.

“Andrew then said that someone there was struggling with breathing and seasonal-type things, giving them trouble sleeping. He asked them to stand up. At that moment, it felt like there were arms under mine, lifting me up to my feet. There I stood, along with a few others around the room, when Andrew yelled, ‘Well, there’s Melanie Davis! Good to see you!’ I know I turned every shade of red there was.”

Andrew then directed those nearby to lay hands on those who were standing. With her eyes closed, Melanie could feel the warmth as hands were laid on her shoulders, surrounding her in prayer.

“I don’t remember what Andrew said or did,” remarks Melanie, “but at the end of the prayer, my eyes popped wide open. I could clearly see everything around me. My eyes didn’t itch at all, and I could feel the swelling leave. I was stunned and started crying. Then I looked to my left, and there was that young girl Andrew was telling us about. She had prayed for me! I was healed, head to toe, as quickly as the snap of my fingers.

“I knew that night that God was real. I figured He probably was before, but now I knew He was alive and that I was healed! Don’t be discouraged. You don’t need to work for it; it’s already there, just waiting for you to believe it. I may not have all the answers, but I do know that God wants us to be like 3 John 2—in good health.”

Melanie knew her healing had stuck like glue when she went on a bike ride in the same area where she had struggled to breathe before, and had no problems of any kind—except maybe keeping up with her kids! She can walk through a pasture, rub her face in a bed of weeds, mow, camp, fish, and cuddle with a dog without one single sniffle or sneeze. In the past eight years, she has not sneezed, and her eyes have not swelled.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Praise Jesus Who did all of the healing when he was crucified before the foundation of the earth! Our precious benefits and good gifts were paid for way in advance. HalleluYAH!

This is awesome as all of the testimony posts are. I found Andrew's book, "God Wants You Well" in Sept. 2011 and 3 months later I couldn't breathe. That began a long path of learning all we could on healing because in my mind surgery wasn't an option for a mechanical mitral valve when I also had a hugely enlarged heart, atrial fibrillation and bad rhythm. I was not into docs and hospitals so my healing journey began. The details are not important since they are NOT the actual reality ... things above are REAL. I am unable to do anything being on oxygen 24/7 and a 25' tube to walk, which throws everything into an uproar on heart rate and breathing, so I have plenty of time to KNOW God.

I love the "you don't have to work for it, just believe." I've been TRYING to believe for a long time and now realize that it's really a knowing of my oneness with Christ. When I accepted Him, He became one with me. I Cor. 6:17 - "But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit." I've been meditating on many verses and specifically those about who I am in Christ ... but I now realize that I have always pictured Jesus in me as being part of me ... not actually being me as far as the spirit realm goes. And could he also be IN ME in the soul and body realm since I am one with Him? And "As He is, so am I in this world" then says that my body will have to respond to His Presence and walk in divine health.

I've been very stubborn in my life and strong-willed and independent, so it's been a long road after my health tanked. I'm 65 now & thank God that I will have a segment of my life to be all that He has planned and purposed for me to be. I can feel the moment in time coming quickly. This story was so special to me. Thank you for all the posts you send out and all of the wealth of options on Andrew's main site for teaching. The Healing School has been such a blessing ... there are just not enough words to say ..... THANK YOU!

Christmas is coming and I believe nothing will be better than a Play Station gift from Santa. I love them personally and I hope Santa will gift me one lol.

It's great to read this artical and the above comments / stories too.
Yes, it not only encourages me, it confirms much of what I have been reading this last week in my Bible, in books 'Smith Wigglesworth' and hearing a few hours more of Andrews aduio teaching . (I'll not explain it all here) but just say . THANKYOU for sharing.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL !

P.s, When the Play station arrives, remember to share it with others, give joy, be kind and say thank you in a prayer to God. Actually you will come to realise that a play staion is not the very best thing in your life. X
