Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Last week I suggested that too often people discount their capacity to pray for others or may let an  extraordinary moment slip away. Later they may wonder if they really did have an ability to communicate healing. They did!

I want to continue to encourage you to explore healing ministry. Here’s another example of divine healing.  Andrew Wommack is an American minister working in healing. This account comes from his ministry.

Teresa Houghteling’s dominant emotion was fear. She lamented, “The disease that was in my body was slowly killing me from the inside out, and there was nothing I could do about it.”

Every six months, Teresa Houghteling had to get her bloodwork checked to see if her organs were still functioning properly. She was suffering from the deadly and incurable Sjögren’s syndrome. After dealing with the disease for several years, it had become something she just had to live with. However, in 2007, Teresa had an encounter with God and rededicated herself to Him, beginning a new journey.

Unfortunately, Teresa’s body did not seem to line up with her inner transformation. In fact, her physical symptoms worsened. In 2011, she was diagnosed with lupus, degenerative disk disease in her back, a bulged disk, and carpal tunnel in her right arm. Teresa remembered, “The emotion that followed was pure confusion.”

Teresa began studying the Bible with new seriousness. She began to understand the importance of how revelation makes words contain power. “I remember Andrew (Wommack) making the statement that one of the reasons we don’t get healed is because our physical bodies are more real to us than our spirit man.” For Teresa, transformation was now well on its way.

“On my way home from a conference I thought I heard God say, ‘So, if you’re healed, doesn’t that include your thyroid gland?’” Fear tried to creep back in as Teresa thought about what would happen if she stopped her medication. However, she was determined not to allow fear to dominate her life again!

Teresa’s journey brought her to a place of complete health and freedom. However, she will be the first one to tell you that it was not overnight. “It was a process for me. I had emotional healing that took place before the physical healing… I became so focused on my relationship with God that I honestly couldn’t say when symptoms began to leave my body… I know that no matter what comes my way, His Word is true, and no one will ever be able to take that away from me.” Healing was completed.

Different people have different experiences and we can learn something from all of them. Teresa offers insight into the power of biblical words to develop an expectation and faith.

Remember to …expect the unexpected!
