God has Done Wonderful Deeds for me

Jason Lam
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
(Ps. 107:21)

Two years ago, I returned to work in mainland China. One evening, my skin suddenly became extremely itchy and I was hospitalized. Afterwards, I went to see a dermatologist but there was no improvement. I later returned to Hong Kong for treatment; however, there were still no signs of improvements. The sickness had become more severe and both of my hands became very swollen with bleeding. There was bleeding in my fingers. Daily routines such as washing my face and taking showers were extremely painful. This unusual sickness affected my sleep schedule as well, as my skin was most itchy from 2am to 6am every morning. I was only able to fall asleep when morning came. It was extremely itchy and there was no scratching that could remove the itch. In order to prevent the sickness from becoming worse, I needed to avoid oil, salt, and flavor enhancer in my daily food intake. During those days, I have constantly prayed to the Lord and asked for His healing.

One day, I passed through Jireh Fund office and visited Mrs. Chan. When she saw me, she was shocked because I had lost 20 pounds. I explained that it was due to the skin on my two hands. She immediately prayed for me. One evening, my wife suddenly told me that she heard someone talking in the living room. However, only my wife and I shared the flat, and so I felt something unusual was going on, and this led me to remember the crystal given to me as a gift from my friend in Shanghai. I was unsure if the sickness had to do with the location of the crystal. I relocated the crystal to the rooftop the following day and invited Mrs. Chan to pray at my home. For some reason, I was feeling very depressed that day, even to the point that I wanted to tell Mrs. Chan not to come.

In the end, Mrs. Chan came and she was moved to pray for my relationship with my mother. In fact, my mother died three years ago. Ever since this unusual skin sickness came and affected my sleep, I have constantly conversed with my "mother" because I had a very good relationship with her. Mrs. Chan told me that this was not a right thing to do. My mother was a believer and she now rests in heaven. I was only talking to a spiritual being that resembled my mother. In the past whenever I saw shadows floating across my home, I thought my "mother" had returned. I greatly missed my mother and so I did not pay attention to what was happening. Mrs. Chan reminded me not to easily address anyone as your mother, and she also encouraged me to spend time in prayer. She broke this spiritual bondage that I had with my mother. I also committed her to the Lord. I wept and struggled for a while because I missed being separated from my mother. In the end I accepted Mrs. Chan's suggestions and prayer. On the evening after the prayer, I was able to sleep through the entire night, which was the first time I could do so in the past half a year. As I was taking showers, I was shocked to find that my hands were not painful anymore. The swollen areas on both my hands had vanished on their own and the injured areas began to mend, and my body had also recovered about 80%. On the following day I had dinner with my in-laws and they were shocked to find that I had recovered so quickly. I understood that I had given foothold to the devil during those moments of "conversation" with my mother. I was trapped by the devil and not realizing it. After Mrs. Chan had prayed for me, I led her to the rooftop and showed her the crystal. She said that the crystal was not a problem but a wonderful creation from the Heavenly Father.

In the end, I would like to share with you from Psalm 107:17-21: "Some became fools through their rebellious ways, and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men."
