Miracle or coincidence?

Long story short, I woke up to one of the worst pains I've felt. After seeing a doctor (who didn't do anything, just confirmed it's not a emergency) I decided to pray. After a prayer, I was able to fall asleep somehow and woke up an hour later with little to no pain. Is this a coincidence that I just healed perfectly in 1 hour of sleeping, or maybe the cream finally doing its job. Or did God answer my prayer? Note the circumstances today were so perfect, I find it hard to believe it was a coincidence. The fact my dad took a day off today. The fact my physiotherapist was open so perfectly at the time I needed to go to her. And many other factors. What do you think?

What do you think? With little to no pain/ Which was it, " a little pain" or "no pain"? If it was a little pain, it was not of God........God heals completely. When God heals, there is a spirit of "euphoria" and oneness with the Lord. But we always give thanks to God for our well being and daily bread. I always give God credit for feeling better after being sick because He created our body to heal itself, in that sense we thank God, but when it takes a miracle to cure an ailment, it is done in an instant.

Little pain right when I woke up, when I got out of bed I had no pain, and haven't had any since.

Healing is part of our covenant with God.

Psa_103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

If God promised to Forgive you, the same scripture also said He promised to heal all your diseases. It's shameful for Churches who leave out chunks of scriptures. Oh, that's right, you have to walk by faith for something that has to been seen physically. There's your issue.

However, the Same Word that said your forgiven, also said you will be healed. Without fail.

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
(Jas 5:14-15)

I pray you continue on a healthy daily walk, for everything good comes from God. As has been said, "The Lord does not always come when we call Him, but He is always on time,"

Bless you in the Lord,
Christ in us.

I give all credit to God. All good things come from God.

In the OT, everything was man's and we tithed 10% to God. After Jesus came, it all belongs to Him now, and we ask how much to keep.

We're stewards of what is His. I wouldn't even have a job or place to live if it weren't for Jesus. Anything, all things...all from Jesus. Thank you, LORD Jesus!

So yeah, He helped you. This is not figurative. Thank the Lord.

When I was 18, I became anorexic. This was a few years after my failed suicide attempt. I would go to school after eating no breakfast. I used my lunch money to buy cigarettes. After school I would come home with an empty stomach and try to eat. As time passed I was less and less able to eat until one day just one bite of food would make me nauseous. Doctor said my stomach was inflamed and that I was on the verge of ulcers. I went to a charismatic healing service at a Catholic church of all places. The evangelist Joe Donato was there. I was healed. There is no scriptural formula encantation or ritual. The Lord heals whom He will. We are merely to obey and pray for the sick. Let Him do the rest lest there be braggarts.

There is no such thing as coincidence God performs miracles and puts things and people in our lives for certain reasons.

Brock is center on! There is nothing that is not under the control of God in one form or another.

Whenever I come across James 1:17 it always makes me think. Which says:
'Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.'

God will provide. Leave things in God's hands.

But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19.

Finally, God will take care of you because he cares.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7.

Once you give your life to Jesus nothing that ever happens to you again is chance or coincidence. He rules in all things. Not a sparrow falls without Him. How much more does He see to everything that concerns us? Consider tribulation from persecutors;

2 Thessalonians 1:6 KJVS
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

Paul was persecuting believers but Jesus took it personally. He's looking after you my friend. You're His.

Once I was trying to get a man to sign a release quit claim on land we had bought. A year went by and I heard nothing. Finally I called him in another state. He admitted he'd been carrying the papers I sent him in his car glove box for months. He agreed to sign and return them.

He also mentioned that he had bought property and was having nothing but trouble in getting the title cleared up. Anyone know why? Hallelujah I do! He messed with a king's kid and was suffering for it. Friends our God watches over us to fight for us! Amen and amen I've preached myself happy!

Hello calvin here,
Lukee I have to say that I am a little confused here.
I notice on your profile that you are not a Christian. Yet you say you prayed about your situation.
Of course I straight away jumped to the conclusion that you are atheist.
I should not have done that, so I merely ask you (if you are still about), What is your theistic position?
thanks in advance.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prayer "logs us in" to God, so that his awesome power begins downloading into us.
"Our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power"- (1 Thess 1:5)
For example after Jesus returned from praying to God-
"Everybody tried to touch Jesus because power was coming from him" (Luke 6:12-19)
Jesus said -"Someone touched me, I know that power has gone out from me." (Luke 8:46)
In the same way we too can "touch" God and Jesus with a prayer to them and get a "power download"..:)
It needn't be a long prayer, just the few words "Jesus remember me" when we're feeling lonely or fed up or in pain will usually get us connected.
The chap on the cross next to Jesus said those heartfelt words and Jesus replied "Today you'll be with me in paradise"
