Andy from Indonesia was recently diagnosed with Covid-19.
.
He used the confessions from my booklet “Confessions for Life” to stand on God’s promises to receive his healing.

Be encouraged by his awesome testimony!

Shalom Emily,
.
Thank you so much for Confession for Kids and Confession for Life!
.
Those books have made me realize how important it is to declare the word of God, especially in times when the world is actively “preaching” fear of virus and all other seeds of doubt and unbelief.
.
These recent months have been quite a tough period for us as many of our cell group members including kids were diagnosed with covid-19.
.
I experienced it myself.
.
I was also positively tested covid-19 and the devil started to shoot his lies to my mind that I was a virus transmitter and I would spread it to my father and my sister. I finally decided to be hospitalized, which I eventually found worse than being treated at home as the emergency room has no air con and when I had high fever and experienced nausea – the nurses could not immediately help me because there were many other patients to be taken care of by limited numbers of medical professionals.
.
In those moments I realized that I could not rely on nurses or medical treatment, and started to confess the scripture that by His stripes I have been healed (1 Pet 2:24).
.
I also declared Psalms 41:2-3 “The Lord protects me and keeps me alive. He gives me prosperity and rescues me from my enemies. The Lord nurses me when I am sick and eases my pain and discomfort.”
.
And praise the Lord! The fever subsided and the nausea slowly went away so that I could finally rest. I was then moved from the ER to the isolation room. However, I was still struggling in my mind as negative thoughts for the enemy tried to overtake me. There were thoughts that I might be sick due to unforgiveness or my old habit of smoking, etc. I was condemned. Until the Holy Spirit finally brought the light to my mind that Jesus has forgiven all of my sins and healed all my diseases (Ps 103:3), that he has removed my sins as far from us as the east is from the west (Ps 103:12) – and I began to laugh.

The reason I laughed was the realization that the devil was trying to hurt me by bringing up my past, but it was like trying to rob my old house, while I don’t live there anymore.
.
And I began to actively declare healing upon my body.
.
I remembered from the scripture that Jesus instructed me to speak to the mountain, so I said: “Therefore I speak to you sickness, disease, malfunction and pain and I command you to be uprooted and cast into the sea! You have no place in my body. My body functions in the perfection that God created it to function. I am perfect, complete, and lacking nothing in Jesus’ name!” (Mark 11:23, James 1:4)
.
“The same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is living in me. He who raised Christ from the dead has given life to my mortal body by His Spirit, who lives in me.” (Romans 8:11)
.
And praise His holy name, within a few days, I was declared negative from covid-19 and I was discharged from the hospital.
.
I learned that Jesus has settled every sickness and disease upon the cross – and we only need to stand on His unshakeable word.
.
Likewise, we also teach the kids (in our cell groups) to speak the word of faith, word of healing and to believe that their God is Jehovah Rapha – God that heals.
.
Our cell group members also finally get through the difficult times and come out victoriously. Hallelujah!
.
Again, thank you Emily for the books that have blessed us.
Now we can witness to others as living testimony.
.
All glory to the name of Lord Jesus Christ!
.
Andy
……….
.
Praise the Lord! His Word is LIFE to our body and medicine, nourishment, and healing to our flesh!
.
We “take” His medicine with our mouth – by speaking His Word consistently and deliberately no matter what the symptoms are telling us.
.
Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed financially to what God is doing through Faith Talks – your generosity is helping to give people all over the world the tools they need to see victory in every area of their lives.

Emily ❤️
