The following is a member testimony from Calvary Temple, a Bible believing church located in Sterling, VA, that teaches and lives sound doctrine.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Today at Calvary Temple Miracles I wanted to share about the Deliverance of Fear. This testimony is about Donna Wotring and how the Lord set her free! God is so good!
For years I’ve struggled with believing for healing. I believe He can heal and that He will heal you but why would God heal me? Earlier this year began a move of the Spirit in our fellowship that had caused me to think about healing more. I really needed a whole body healing/wholeness. I have several minor things I deal with consistently…dental issues, digestive issues, thyroid disease, but the biggest one is fear. I’ve been bound by fear and anxiety in dealing with panic attacks for several years.
It had been so heavily on my mind, I knew during one particular Sunday morning’s service in early April, that that Sunday night would be for me. So when Pastor Scott came up and started communion, I knew it was my time. As he began to call people forward, I practically ran up before he even finished his first sentence. I was the first one up and my heart was pounding out of my chest. I could relate to the woman with the issue of blood and I knew that God would meet me. And He did!
I know the symptoms may still come (and they certainly do) but I don’t care because I know God loves me and wants me whole. God has promised me healing and wholeness, He has promised me peace when I abide in Him, and He has promised me victory through the blood of Jesus that was shed for ME. And He is able and will do exceeding abundant above what I could ask or think! And God will be glorified in my body and in my life!!
Even though I wasn’t physically healed that night, I believe God touched me and healed my heart and healed my faith to believe for healing like I hadn’t before. Now I have the confidence to walk in His strength and power so that when the symptoms of fear do come, I know I am not alone. My God is with me, upholding me by His right hand, fighting and praying for me.
God has worked many things in my life through these physical trials and is continuing to do so. While I want them to end, I know they have been good for me in many ways. God is bringing me to a place where I trust nothing but Him. I now have more of an eternal perspective; it has caused me to focus more heavenward and less temporal. I know Jesus is with me in the fire and when I come out, I will be as gold, I will be more like Him.
While I strive to wait patiently for healing, I just ask you to rejoice in God’s goodness with me and stand with me in believing for the work to be finished!!
