It was 1968, and I was 13 years old. We had now moved to Alexandria Louisiana. I had severe sinus problems in which my face would swell due to heavy inflammation in my sinuses. I would soak my handkerchief with cold water and place in it on my face while at church or school to help alleviate the pain. Medication never helped. If you ever had severe sinus issues you know how discomforting and painful it is!
One Sunday morning, I entered my 13 year old Sunday School class in much pain. We had about 25+ young people in there, plus the wonderful teachers: Alvin and Laverne Owens, Allen and Carrie Joyce Cripps, and Charlie Charrier. I was in so much pain I could not keep from crying as I continued to soak my face with my wet handkerchief. Charlie Charrier spoke up and said, “I do not know what is wrong with Mike, but we need to pray for him!”
All the young people and teachers gathered around me and began to pray. Something started happening in my sinuses! Everything broke loose and I had to catch it all in my handkerchief. What a relief it was! My pain was gone for the first time in a long time, and I never had sinus problems again.
In 1979, while I was working on a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico, I awoke one morning to find that it was so cold in our quarters, my sinuses were affected. I walked outside and the pain hit me hard. I cried out, “Sinuses I rebuke you in Jesus Name!” The pain left and I have never had anymore sinus problems since! Hallellujah!!
Whatever you are facing today, no matter how small or great, God has a way of taking care of it! He doesn’t want you to suffer. He wants you taken care of! He is our Shepherd and we shall not want! Trust His Word and receive your miracle!
