What do we do when even though our faith is overriding the physical situation and the doctors can see that what they are predicting is not happening, but they continue to prophesy the worst over us and our loved ones? Let's read this prayer request from a woman today and talk about it together.
Hi Mrs. Becky, God has blessed my husband and I with a baby boy. From 4 months in the womb they had claimed my baby had a singular ventricle and would not live without surgery. They tried to have me terminate my baby. My husband and I said no. He was born through a C-section. They claimed a surgery would happen 1-2 days after birth, then another one 2-3 months then 6 months. He is 4 months old and not one surgery has happened. Still now they are saying a surgery will happen 6 months to a year.
How should we respond to medical reports, such as the one listed above? I address this in my latest work, The Prophetic and Healing Power of Your Words, Chapter 3, "Negative and Poisonous Word Curses", pages 46-47, under the subtitle, "Unintentional Word Curses".
A man is not feeling well and goes to the doctor for a checkup. He hears a report that his blood pressure is very high. Instead of just telling the man the results and that they are going to work with him to bring it down, the doctor speaks words of death and demonstrates with actions that this man will have a heart attack or a stroke. The conversation goes beyond reporting results, and the doctor unintentionally prophesies death.
How should this man respond to the doctor's colorful report? After all, he did seek the doctor out for medical advice. How about, "That's not going to happen to me. I will do what it takes to bring this blood pressure down to normal levels. Will you help me do this?"
Another man was told he was going to die of kidney disease. This man firmly said, "No, I am not going to die." And he's alive and well.
Another person is told they will never walk again. This one said, "I do not receive that. I will walk again." And he did.
As you can read from this little excerpt from the book, we do not have to settle for the negative medical report. We have a say-so in our health situation. We can make a quality decision of faith and prophesy life, strength, healing and health into our bodies. And along with prophesying health into our bodies in the name of Jesus, we also need to remember that faith demands action, and we need to put action behind our bold words of faith. If you receive a death report, not only speak the opposite of this negative report and speak life, strength and healing, but act as though you are going to live.
And so that you understand how we should prophesy health and healing over our bodies, I have included my response to the woman's prayer request in the beginning of this post.
In the name of Jesus, every negative report they are speaking over your baby will not come to pass. You have made the right choice to believe the report of the Lord, and by the healing whips of Jesus his heart is recreated, strong and healthy and functions 100%. There is no heart defect, only re-creation, healing and a strong heart for the glory of the Lord, amen.
