A friend of mine sent me a text at the end of last week, regarding a concern that the doctor had about her husband. I could tell by the tone of the text that I needed to seek YHWH/God on their behalf. I asked YHWH/God what was on His heart concerning this circumstance. He brought me to some bible verses; as well as gave other words of encouragement. I received a message today that all was well. It was not surprise to me at all, because God’s word is true and it is the law. Laws are constant and yield favorable results if you abide by it; and less than favorable results should you decide otherwise. She let me know of an issue that she was dealing with. Again, I went to my Father in prayer, asking Him for his heart on the matter; and He directed me to a verse; and prompted me to give them the book: “Of Monkeys and Dragons: Freedom From The Tyranny of Disease” by Michelle Longo O’Donnell.
I immediately got up to get the book so that I could take it to her later on. I began thumbing through and reading sections here and there. I then came to the part for the reason that she wrote the book, and felt that it is quite fitting for anyone who reads this post. I first read this book more than ten years ago, and it absolutely changed the way that I looked at disease. She tells about how she had had pneumonia for two weeks. She had come home, fell asleep and had a dream. She was walking along a path and noticed these monkeys that started biting her. She started jumping around to get them off of her. She heard a voice that said: “Don’t look at them. Look straight ahead down the path.” She was scared that they’d eat her; but she obeyed the voice. The monkeys froze. Whenever she looked at them they would bite; but whenever she focused on the path, they would freeze. As she continued down the path, she noticed two big dragons coming towards her. She was scared, but looked away anyway; and they too froze. When she woke up from the dream, all of the pneumonia symptoms were gone.
I thought this story was very fitting for now. If each person makes a decision to focus on the path that YHWH/God has designed his/her life, the fear-driven virus will become paralyzed and will not be able to touch you.
