I have a testimony to share.

It’s a recent event that has changed my life- a prayer meeting. I meet weekly with a group in Midland that worships + prays for the persecuted Church. I’ve been with them almost 6 months. A friend knew that I suffered from an anxiety disorder, and offered to pray over me in the group. I said sure! They anointed my head, hands, and feet with oil, laid hands on me, and prayed for about 15 minutes. I didn’t feel any different, other than feeling loved by this amazing group and loved beyond compare by my Savior.

I really wouldn’t know if I was “healed” or not until somewhat nerve-wracking situations arose. And as I’m sure many of you readers know, nerve-wracking situations are bound to crop up. These past few weeks I did feel different.

The only way I can accurately describe it is like using a buffer  plugin for peaking and clipping in audio mixing. I feel like God placed a protective “ceiling” on my anxiety levels. now I feel His peace. Now, it’s not necessarily a conscious effort on my part. It’s like He is whispering to me, “I (The LORD) will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14).

It’s in times like these I am reminded just how supernatural our God is. He hears- he’s running interference behind the scenes for his BELOVED! His chosen and righteous ones- He loves and stands up for.

Psalm 34 (emphasis added)
Please read slowly and carefully:

“I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he {delivered} me from all my fears. 
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he {saved} him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he {delivers} them. 
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are {attentive} to their cry; the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the LORD {hears} them; he {delivers} them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and {saves} those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD {delivers} him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes {refuge} in him.”

I just love these parts, because I feel like I could’ve literally written this along with the psalmist out of my troubles: “I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he {delivered} me from all my fears. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he {delivers} them. 

Wow. The idea that God would send angels to camp out in loving protection over me is almost too much for my heart to bear. He loves me that much??

I added brackets around how many times the psalmist made note of God delivering, saving, or hearing and rescuing His saints. Re-read those if you want. The Bible is chocked FULL of God delivering us. {Tweet this quote!}
