‘Love will find a way’ is one of the wonderful songs the Lord gave to me and like all songs it has a story of it’s own.
Back in what seems an age ago now (but was actually around 2010) I had been experiencing some very nasty symptoms that the doctors couldn’t offer any help with or get to the bottom of. This had been progressing for a few years and so I was feeling very anxious as it was steadily getting worse.
I believe that God is still in the business of healing people today and so my expectation was that I would get better. However, one particularly painful and sleepless night I cried out to God and asked Him what was wrong with me and what I could do to find some help. In a very still small voice I heard Him say “They are going to tell you that it’s Multiple Sclerosis. Don’t be afraid, just believe” Immediately, I felt an overwhelming sense of peacefulness and was able to fall asleep. As you can imagine, this was not a normal response for someone who has just been told that they are about to be diagnosed with an incurable disease!
The scripture was running around in my mind in Mark 5:36 where Jesus heard the news that someone whom He was on the way to heal had died. If you know the story, Jairus (ruler in a local synagogue) asked Jesus to come quickly to heal his daughter. However, a servant arrived shortly afterwards to tell them not to bother because the girl had died. Wonderfully Jesus was not moved by the seemingly final and devastating report. He simply said to the anxious father “Be not afraid, only believe” I kept thinking about Jesus’ words in light of what I’d heard the night before.
Shortly thereafter, I experienced a severe bout of numbness and pain and was hospitalised. After many tests the conclusive diagnosis was as you have guessed, Multiple Sclerosis. Thus began many appointments, clinics and consultations. I hung onto the encouraging words of my Heavenly Father and many, many accounts in the bible where Jesus healed every person who came to Him in faith that He would do it. It was during this time of ‘just believing’ against all odds that the song ‘Love will find a way’ was born in my heart.
One Sunday afternoon singing with my church in the service, I heard so clearly the words “Love will find a way”. Even though there was NO way according to the current medical profession to be cured of this disease, God encouraged me with the words to this song. He IS love according to 1 John 4:8 and He wants us to know that He is able to find a way for us, no matter how impossible it seems.
So I decided to trust Him, stick with the scriptures He spoke to me and just continue to believe. Without going into the detail of how God led me to walk free …all the symptoms of this terrible disease are gone and I miraculously have had the diagnosis removed from my medical records. I can say to the Glory of God I do NOT have MS.
So whatever you are facing today, don’t be afraid – only believe. God is Love and He will always find a way for you.
