DOCTORS VERIFY THAT BRAIN TUMOR IN CALIFORNIA MAN VANISHES DAY BEFORE SURGERY AS CHURCH MEMBERS PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE HEALING.
The day before surgery, Wood’s operation was canceled because his suspected tumor was gone. “It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it,” he said. Specialists said they can’t explain why everything vanished. Wood’s doctor can’t either. “We do tests and we have medical technology and we try to come up with some conclusion… sometimes things happen that we can’t explain,” said Dr. Richard Yee.
We live in the Church Age, not in the time of signs, miracles and wonders. Our apostle Paul tells us that we walk by faith, and not by sight. But the God that we love and serve is still in the miracle business, and every once in awhile, something like this happens and it is truly amazing.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16 (KJV)
Christians are called to trust in the Lord with all our heart, mind, body and soul. Sometimes God gives us the miracle, and sometimes He allows us to go through it and give Him the glory anyway, even in the midst of our suffering. Whatever our struggle is, and whatever our needs may be, everything works out better when we cast it all at the feet of Jesus, and ask Him to order and reorder our steps.
Lodi Man Gets Second Chance At Life When Brain Tumor Vanishes Without Surgery
FROM CBS SACRAMENTO: It happened to a Lodi man who turned to his faith and the very community he has spent years helping. Several months ago, Lodi father and community volunteer Paul Wood realized something just wasn’t right.
“I had massive headaches, I couldn’t walk down the hallway without holding on to the walls,” he said.
Wood’s primary physician sent him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco who thought he had a brain bleed, although radiologists saw signs of a tumor. Wood immediately turned to his faith and his community for support.
“My phone is blowing up, my Facebook is prayer after prayer, all over California,” said Wood.
The day before surgery, Wood’s operation was canceled because his suspected tumor was gone.
“IT’S A MIRACLE AND THAT IS THE WAY GOD PLANNED IT,” HE SAID. SPECIALISTS SAID THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN WHY EVERYTHING VANISHED. WOOD’S DOCTOR CAN’T EITHER.
“WE DO TESTS AND WE HAVE MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY AND WE TRY TO COME UP WITH SOME CONCLUSION… SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN THAT WE CAN’T EXPLAIN,” SAID DR. RICHARD YEE.
Faith leaders at Gravity Church, where Wood is a member, believe when there is prayer in numbers, there is a higher power at work.
“He just kept saying, ‘no matter what happens to me, I’m going to be okay. I trust God.’ And that was an inspiration for a lot of people around him,” said Jason McEachron, a Pastor at Gravity Church.
“Paul’s story just breathes hope,” said church member Ryan Kimura.
Wood said the doctors are so intrigued with his recovery, they have asked him to volunteer to be part of a research study.
