‘Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…’ (Col. 3:16; KJV).
It was around 7 p.m. or so. My group and I had just rounded up a programme. We had been in the Lord’s presence all-day. We were through and it was time to go home. Then someone tapped me and said a man wanted to see me. The man actually wanted to see a pastor friend of mine but he had left the church. The man could have waited till the next day to see my pastor friend but there was an emergency case that needed immediate attention.
The man explained to me that his wife was ‘over there’ and that she needed to be prayed for. I didn’t really know what it was about but I asked a few of my group members to go with us.
When we got there, I saw a woman who was talking to herself and gesticulating in such a manner that makes it obvious that she was not mentally okay. I wasn’t as informed then as I am now. So I took my Bible, opened to a particular Psalm and started reading it out loud. I consciously maintained a distance from her. As I was reading, the demon ‘in’ her got agitated. So the woman stood up, raised her two hands, and was angrily making for me.
As she was coming, my eyes started missing the lines of the Psalm I was reading. And to prevent receiving a heavy punch on my face, I needed no one to advise me to drop my Bible and concentrate on her advances. My saving grace that day was the fact that I had some other verses of the Bible I had memorized and also, knowledge on our superiority over demons.
Before long, she was screaming, “Fire! Fire! Please! Please!” and so on. In the process she vomited some strange things and after about half an hour, she became calmer. By this time most of my group members were very far away. How the scenario went was more than they bargained for.
About two weeks later, I saw a very beautiful woman. I didn’t recognize her at first because she was looking very different now. She had gone through some more prayers with my pastor friend and his team; and her healing had been perfected. The other day she looked like a lion. But now she was in a perfect state of mind and looking radiant.
That incident forced me to go back and memorize that Psalm that I couldn’t complete reading that night. Dear friend, we will always need the Word for unforeseen circumstances. You need to make it a point of duty to build yourself up on God’s words by committing them to memory. Receive the grace to do so. In Jesus name!
Today’s Corporate Prayer: O Lord, give us hunger for more of Your word. Help us to draw closer and closer to you always so as to experience more of Your power. In Jesus mighty name!
