Oh Goodness: A Baby Brought Back to Life

Toby came to America from Kenya. Her baby, Goodness, was six weeks old with a heart defect. The mother had full faith that something wonderful would happen with her baby. She brought him to a church in New Jersey where she knew I would be that day. 

When I laid hands on that little fellow, his heart was beating so fast. He was having a terrible time breathing. The spirit of death was all around this struggling baby. “You shall live and not die,” I commanded. 

Why did I say that? The scripture says, “Believe the prophets and you will prosper.” God says, “I’m not going to do anything that I don’t first tell the prophets to do.” 

I was “a word” that was sent forth to be able to help in this incredible situation. After I prayed for Goodness, he settled down and became calm. 

Jesus was the Word, but we are a word that’s always been in the mind of Christ. We have been sent forth. God’s Word will not return void but will accomplish what it’s sent forth to do. 

We are all different and carry different anointings. The Messiah, the Son of the Living God is alive and wanting to do incredible things in your life. Not only in your life, but also in the life of your family, friends, and neighbors. 

Amazing things are happening even today including answered prayers and miracles. 

What happened to Goodness? Little Goodness began to lose his breath. It looked grim. Everyone at the church gathered around him. Each person spoke healing scriptures over him. Praying and decreeing the healing power of God’s Word, that precious baby became calm again. 

The next day, Toby took Goodness to the doctor. Toby waited while her baby was put in another room.  In that room, her baby died. 

Determined to find Goodness, she walked in the next room and found no life in him. She spoke these words, “You shall live and not die. God is not a man that he would lie. Baby, you will come back to life. You will serve the cause of Christ. Let me tell you something, Goodness, you will awake from the dead.” 

The little fellow caught his breath and came alive. Goodness was resurrected from the dead! The Muslim doctor witnessed this and said, “This is the most amazing thing that I have ever seen. It must be the Messiah who did this.” 

There is a savior. He wants to work in your life. Toby chose to agree with God. She didn’t just try and give up. It’s not trying, it’s doing. The Word of God is powerful. Choose to believe it and walk in His power. 

God is a God of impossible cases. Do you have some impossible cases going on in your life? Press on. God says you are blessed and empowered. Stand in a place of authority. 

God wants you to prosper. He wants you to walk in wholeness and health. When sickness comes on your body or anyone’s body, say, “NO! In the authority of the name of Jesus, I stand in this place. By His stripes, I am healed.” Receive your healing. Keep speaking it out loud. Jesus healed all who came to him. Take the Word of God into your heart and choose to believe it.
