The healing power of Jesus Christ was flowing effortlessly and one by one, they testified of being healed of various ailments, many as they were just sitting in their chairs, standing in a line to the front some were being healed before prayer was released for their conditions, shoulders unlocked, pain disappeared from others, bank and spinal problems healed, stomach disorders disappeared. Faith was so natural in a church our ministry helped to birth in Managua and the presence of God was keenly felt, many openly weeping as they were overwhelmed by His love while others were being delivered of demonic spirits under the anointing that was present.
As the meeting was drawing to a close, a little girl was brought to me by her parents and one look at her feet told me why. She had club feet, pointing inward at 45 degree angle at least. I was so thrilled in the atmosphere of faith in the room and expectant that her feet would straighten right out immediately and prayed that it would happen. Fully anticipating that to happen, I told the parents to put their daughter on the floor, she was about 4 years old, and was surprised when she began to walk, her feet were still the same! Not accepting this to be true, I prayed again and the same thing happened, nothing. I prayed again, no change. I really sensed that God had touched her but to all of us beholding the little girl, we had to admit that her feet were still the same. I could not really say anything, and continued to pray for others and left the meeting a bit perplexed as I really thought she would be healed.
About a week later, the Pastor of that church came to Dario, Nicaragua where I was staying. As he entered the living room where I was conversing with some others, he was so excited and began to ask me if I remembered the girl with the club feet. I told him I did and he shared this wonderful testimony. Just a few days after that service the mother took the girl to a doctor to be fitted with braces to attempt to begin to straighten her feet out. He was aware of her condition and had x-rays of the bones in her feet and legs. When she brought her daughter in, her feet were the same as always and the doctor began to examine her saying the same. The mother left her daughter in the room and shortly after the doctor called her in. Hid demeanor had changed and told her that something happened. He had the girl on a table and put her on the floor and happened to notice that her feet were straight!
Not believing what he was seeing, he had her walk and her feet were completely normal. Then he decided to x-ray her feet and the bone structures of her legs and ankles and everything was normal. He showed the sets of x-rays, before and after, and told the mom her daughter no longer had club feet. It was a miracle he said and wondered how it happened. The mother was ecstatic with joy and told the doctor that a man prayed for her daughter a few days before and God must have did a delayed healing. The doctor did not know what to say, but the mother full of rejoicing and praise began to tell everyone she knew about what had happened to her daughter and as the pastor said, it so encouraged and blessed those that knew her and touched many hearts as she shared what God had done. Sometimes you do not see the evidence of a healing until a bit later, so do not let go of His commitment to do a miracle in your life, no matter what area you are believing to experiecnce one!!
