And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. 12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity." 13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
[Editor's comment: All we need is for Jesus to look our way and see our need whatever it is, and He will know what to do for us.
This unnamed woman Dr. Luke tells us had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years. I am not sure I know what "a spirit of infirmity" really means. Whatever it is, it caused this dear woman to be bent over and not able to stand upright and no doubt was unable to walk as she would like to walk.
I don't know your need. But I can identify with this woman Jesus performed a creative miracle for her. I am bent over. My spine is a mess. I hurt every day, and my walking has become more difficult. However, I am claiming my healing in the Name of Jesus and I am trusting Him for a creative miracle.
Today, I received a card with a letter from Faye Penland that was such an encouragement to me, along with a nice contribution to Hugh's News. She and Betty Baxter were co-evangelists and traveled together. As I recall they were credentialed ministers of the Western North Carolina Conference which today is renamed Cornerstone Conference. They preached a number of revivals in Melvine's home church, the Draper Pentecostal Holiness Church in Eden, NC.
In this Hugh's News I will share Betty Baxter's testimony via a video that was filmed on TBN with Dwight Thompson who was the emcee. I trust it will be a blessing to you. If you need divine healing, I pray that God will enable you to exercise your faith to believe God for your complete healing.]
