I would like to share a testimony with you of how The Lord healed me from tinnitus.
One day I woke up suddenly having issues with my hearing, experiencing a strange noise from the inside of my ears and continuously hearing different sounds. At first I tried to ignore the problem, but it had such an impact on my well-being that I couldn’t sleep for several nights. One night I was so exhausted from this condition that my husband and I decided to pray for some time, quoting scriptures from the Bible. This brought some relief and allowed me to sleep for a few hours.
An otolaryngologist gave me some advice on how to live with this disease, however medically speaking there’s not much that can be done. Meanwhile, I spoke to other people and realised just how widespread tinnitus actually is. Many patients can only fall asleep while listening to music with headphones to distract them from the ringing noise. However, it was clear to me that I wouldn’t want to do this, so I did not start using headphones.
Many friends prayed for me, and I looked up scriptures in the Bible in the full assurance that God would heal me. Somehow I knew that I would not spend my whole life with this noise in my ears. Six weeks later, this noise that was plaguing me disappeared, and I realised that I had been completely healed! The Lord heard my prayers and healed me. Since then I have passed my testimony onto many people.
After more than a year without symptoms, there came a time when I feared the tinnitus had returned. At first I panicked and was afraid to talk about it, but when I eventually started to speak about my worries I realised that I could actually be ruled again by this fear. But when I remembered what a miracle The Lord had done in my life by curing me, I knew that I didn’t need to fear. Since then, I have always thanked The Lord for His healing power, knowing that He is in control. The anxious states and sleepless nights are all a thing of the past.
The glory goes alone to our Lord Jesus Christ. The bible says in MATTHEW 8:17 "“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” "So I can confidently say that He took our infirmities and carried our sicknesses, and that I am free from disease.
