For those who read my last post, I thought it would be cool to hear more from the perspective of Devin. Although I have seen healings, I have never personally received a supernatural healing. Because of this, I am fascinated with hearing from the mind of the healed. After Devin read my post he sent me this in a message:
"I love it man, I also love the blog. Thanks for including the part where I was freaked out, I think that'll stand out to a lot of people who are skeptical. I was definitely skeptical at first, and when my back felt better I think I freaked out as a result of the skepticism. This should stand out to a majority of the people who are skeptical, and hopefully cause them to see that Christ's healing power is as real as himself. Hopefully it even causes them to go out and experience it for themselves. Thanks again Nate, and keep it up. Cheers!"
Devin's response was so powerful and full of life! It gave me goosebumps because it reminded me that all it takes is one touch from the finger of God and a person's whole perspective on life can change. His message inspired me so much that I asked him a few interview questions to get an indepth view of his heart from this experience. Here's the brief conversation:
Me: Can you explain what was going through your mind when I asked if I could pray for you?
Devin: I wasn't sure what to expect, and to be honest it caught me off guard. There have been very few times where people have offered to pray for me. So when you asked, it was as if I was flattered haha
Me: Can you describe what you "felt"?
Devin:I felt a warmness and peace come through me. It was as if every uncertain thought I had about my health was flushed out.
Me:What was going through your mind when you realized you were healed?
Devin: There's no way that just happened. I've always heard of healing happening to others, but to experience it firsthand can't be placed into words.
Me:What did this encounter do to your faith?
Devin: It made me better realize the gravity of God's power and how He is still very involved with daily life. It's funny, I remember reading about all of healing accounts in the Gospel and that same Lord that healed hundreds also healed me. Crazy.
If you or anyone you know needs prayer please let me know. Text me, call me, email me, find a way to contact me, I would love to pray for you!
