Victory over Fear, Anxiety and Doubt

A wonderful testimony of healing and presence as the Lord continues to reveal who He really is to a people that diligently seek Him. Thanks for sending the testimony.

“For a number of years, I have struggled with what I now understand to be familial issues of fear, anxiety, & doubt. These things were strong on both sides of my family lines. Sometimes I could not even make sense of the doubt issues, particularly in the area of receiving answers to prayer. I struggled with this often & sincerely asked the Lord to deliver me from these issues. Over the past few years, with the help & ministry of friends, I definitely received a level of relief & improvement, but wanted more. On the 15th of February, I went in for my annual mammogram.

If there is something amiss with the study, you get a phone call within a few days. Happily, my phone did not ring & I waited for my “all clear” letter to come in the mail. Almost 2 weeks later, I received a phone call informing me that there was an area of asymmetry less than one centimeter that needed further imaging with a diagnostic mammogram. All sorts of fear images started playing in my head. I took a stand against the fear & knew I needed ministry & prayer. In my heart I knew that I had to choose life from the Lord of Life. John & Jill were having a meeting the next evening. John’s message was so uplifting … Choose life!!!

Jill beautifully prayed me “through His atonement.” That was such a vivid picture for me, knowing what the atonement bought us.Then John prayed for me. Immediately, without my saying anything, the Holy Spirit revealed to him my need for deliverance from fear, anxiety & doubt. It was so amazing & such an easy process. Jesus let me see myself sitting on His lap, with His right arm wrapped around my waist. We were sitting high above on a cliff, looking down on what appeared to be a deep chasm. As John called out each spirit of fear, anxiety, & doubt I was able to see each one fall down into that abyss. I had such peace when I left to go home. I had to wait a week for the next mammogram.

Normally, I would have felt fear & dread waiting for that next test. I had such a profound peace all week. Several times I had actually forgotten that I was going for the test. Even the day before the test, my daughter had to remind me, “No, Mom, we cant go shopping tomorrow morning! You have to go to Kaiser!!” When I showed up at the Breast Care Clinic, the fear level was so high on the other women waiting in the reception area. I began to silently pray for each of them. My turn came. Two films were done, then a 3rd was needed. The technician returned with a smile on her face. She said, “You are fine. What ever it was is gone. You are so fine that the radiologist doesn’t even need to speak with you. She sent me in to tell you the good news!”

Praise the Lord for His goodness to me! I am so grateful for His timing in revealing the deliverance I so needed! What a difference it has made for me! I rejoice in His goodness to me! And, if He did it for me, He will do it for you!”
