“God said No to Death”
One winter day we took all our kids sledding. They had been going up and down the icy hill for an hour or more and it was getting too cold. So I said, “Let’s go home.” One more time they all cried.
My husband said, “Oh, let them go one more time.”
I was reluctant but I said, “Okay.”
Tara and John went down on a round aluminum sled. Halfway down they struck something sticking up from the ice and veered off into the trees.
We both knelt there with our son turning blue and his tongue cut and no blood coming out. We both asked in our heart for God to give him back to us. That’s all we could say. God heard me and I believed he would. His word is His will and His word said He “came to give us life and it more abundantly.” Not death. Satan comes “to steal and to kill and to destroy.” Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.”
I John 5:14 says, “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He heareth us, and if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”
Now we know this in our hearts and spirits and believed it.
John took one deep breath and his tongue immediately healed over and he was ALIVE. PRAISE THE LORD.
We went home. Jack and I felt the fear of that day for a couple of months before it left us. God had miraculously moved again for us.
Thank you, Lord. Help me to make my life a symbol of praise and thanksgiving to you. When I have no one to depend on or turn to in this world- Lord there is always You. You are faithful.
Years later I heard an evangelist preaching and he said that he smelled death when a man died of a heart attack. When he laid hands on him and prayed, God revived him.
