Perfect Healing

During worship today at church a word was spoken over me regarding my hip.

Just like Jacob’s hip was dislocated after wrestling with the angel before his name was changed to Israel, and he walked with a limp after, God said I will have a twinge in my hip, as He heals me from surgery. I have wrestled with God, questioned Him and walked through some places. Because of this He will allow me to continue to have a twinge in my hip to serve as a reminder of where I’ve been and where He’s taking me, lest I forget. And then she saw an Angel’s wing covering my hip.

As I was worshipping after this word, I was telling God I was confused.  I received my healing Word back in June or July. It never manifested in the flesh, but I was still believing.  I was claiming that healing into surgery,  and that God may choose to use the doctor for that healing. However, this word contradicts what I know I heard.

That’s when God refuted that as a contradiction and He reminded me about a conversation with another lady at church the week after surgery.  She said, “Continue to thank God for His perfect healing. It may not be a complete healing, but it will be perfect.” Then God reminded me of Paul who asked to have the thorn in his flesh removed. Three times he asked, and God’s response was ,

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV

So, God is healing my hip, but maybe not in the way I thought He would. However, His perfect healing  and power is in my weakness.  Should God choose not to completely heal and reverse the damage inside my hip, my prayer is this: May I glory in my infirmity, as a reminder of who He is, where He’s brought me from, and where He’s taken me, so I may remain humble before Him.
