POWER OF HOLY COMMUNION by Shibu & Julie
We had been married for four years and we wanted to have a child but without any success. We had been to many doctors and we were given the same unpleasant news that we could not have any children. They told us specifically that we could not have any children due to certain medical conditions. While attending the morning service one day, our pastor had a revelation from God specifically for us. He told us that we are going to have a child within a year. Furthermore the child would be a boy and we should name him Isaac. One month after this revelation. I went to see a doctor at Brigham Hospital who was a very famous gynecologist in Boston. After going through my medical reports, he came to the same grim conclusion.
However, we decided to take God’s word at heart and believe on God’s word. We began to confess the promise that was given to us by pastor. We also began to confess and declare the promise that we are going to have a child whenever we took Holy Communion. Even though Abraham was given a promise of a child he had to wait for 25 years to see the fulfillment. Since we believed that God is going to do a miracle we decide to put into practice our faith by purchasing clothes for the new baby. Whenever an opportunity arose, we worked in the church nursery, taking care of the little ones. Three months after pastor got the revelation, I found out that I was pregnant. It was such a joy and we thank God from the depth of our hearts for His faithfulness. Our baby Isaac was born on 25th March 2005. The name Isaac means “son of promise”. In Psalms 127: 3 Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. We are committed to raise this child according to the word of God.
