The Power of God’s Promises
Hi, I’m Julia from Perth,
I would like to tell you a little something about what happened during one weekend.
On Saturday evening, I spent some time reading a book called “There is a miracle is in your mouth” by John Osteen. It gives you a lot of examples of how you can receive healing from God by speaking aloud. I realised that, as I was reading the book and with all the different examples, faith and the expectation to see such a miracle was growing inside me. It spoke about how women were healed of cancer by praying and ‘speaking out’ the miracle. In addition, there was a baby who was born with a muscle disability and was completely healed, again by the family praying and ‘speaking out’ the miracle.
Well anyway, that night, I got really bad pain in my legs. I could not curl up because that was too painful and keeping my legs straight was no better. After reading that book, even though I had only gotten half way through, I realised that it would not get any better if I did not put the things into practise, which I had just learned, as the Bible says be ye doers. Also because the book had so many amazing examples, it also gave me faith that God would heal me. When I went to bed, I laid there, put my hands on my legs, and kept saying, “By his stripes I am healed” (
ISAIAH 53:5) Five minutes later I was perfectly healed with no pain whatsoever and I could sleep well too, which was also much needed. PTL!

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
