I would like to tell you how God healed me of epilepsy.
The first epileptic fit occurred when I was eleven years old. The next seizure
came about three years later. The doctor was not sure that it was epilepsy, so
he did not subscribe any pills to me. Many years later, when I was at university,
I again had seizures and my parents took me to a specialist who subscribed
anti-epileptic medication. From then on I had to take three capsules per day.
When I forgot to take the medication, I had seizures.
During December of 1998, I thought about the word of God in Isaiah 53:
He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, The
chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
I realized that since God brought the world into existence by His word, that His
word must therefore be most trustworthy. If God said that He healed me, it must
be so. From that moment I decided to believe that I was healed, that I did not
have epilepsy anymore. I stopped taking the medication but did not throw it away.
It was a few days later that I believed completely and disposed of the capsules.
All fear of ever having a seizure again had disappeared. Whenever doubt would
arise I would only hold onto what God had said.
