On Sunday night 28th March, an old family friend contacted me on Facebook chat. We talked for a while and then she mentioned that she was suffering from PTSD, Anxiety, Agoraphobia, Depression and morbid obesity.
I had had a conversation with this same friend almost two years ago about the healing power of God to overcome anxiety and depression but nothing had come of it then. But God was at work.
On Sunday night, we were talking about healing and how God used people in the Old Testament to do miracles, and how in the New Testament He used people to do miracles; so it was only natural that He continued to use people to do miracles today: after all He’s the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8).
I really felt Holy Spirit wanted to deal with unforgiveness in her life so I asked her if she had unforgiveness that she wanted to get rid of. I walked her through forgiving everyone who hurt her in her life. Then I walked her through forgiving herself. After that I led her through some declarations of healing and freedom.
I asked her if she was feeling anything and she said she was feeling hungry. I asked her if it was normal and she said she hadn’t been able to eat for a week because she wasn’t hungry. So we knew something was going on.
On Monday evening she contacted me- she wanted to know if she should feel hungry all the time. I was going to ask her if she wanted the hunger to stop but Holy Spirit said it was her metabolism speeding up. She left for a while and came back excited – she had lost 7 pounds in 18 hours! Then she told me that she just realized she had forgotten to take her anxiety medication because she hadn’t noticed any anxiety!
I’ll keep updating as she updates me.
