There is a passage in the book of Zechariah that reminds me of an incident that occurred many years ago. I was very sick and a special friend (a Christian sister) came to visit me. She became very angry because she sensed in her spirit that I was under a spiritual attack and she prayed this powerful prayer:

“The Lord rebuke you, Satan; the Lord that has chosen Zion rebuke you: is not this girl a brand plucked out of the fire?”

And the Lord healed me. His mercy brought me out of that challenge. A brand plucked out of the fire or, as the New International Version of the Bible puts it, a burning stick snatched from the fire, that is what I am because of Jehovah’s kindness.

So if you are in need of healing today or you are in any kind of ‘fire’, you too can pray Zechariah 3:2 over your life. When you do, believe that the Lord will snatch you out and douse the flames because that is who He is: a merciful God, a loving Father and a caring Friend. And I believe along with you that it shall be so and the poem in the illustration below will be your testimony in Jesus’ name.

  1. I am a living testimony to the truth that God cannot fail. It is against his lifestyle to disappoint. He replaces kings with the downtrodden and he lives in me. Halleluyah!

  2. A prayer made in faith brings a positive result. When i am weak or a little down in health, i remember His word which says that by His stripes, i am healed and believing in faith, i become strong and whole

  3. God has never failed me and He will not. true, He might “delay” but when the time is right, He will show up as my knight in shiny armor to save the day.

  4. I have noted this verse Ma. Whenever I am in trouble I will surely remember this verse. Zacharia 3vs 2

  5. We are hand mades of God and no one can snatch us from Him. No enemy can do that no matter the power he possesses because God is the most powerful.

  6. Indeed God Israel our healer and a present help in times of need. He is a great father whose definition lies in the totality of love and the fact that he gave his son to die for us and put his spirit in us. What a loving father he is to who we have been made sons. Gal 5:6.

  7. The Lord always gives victory to his children who call to him in their times of trouble and despair and may his name be praised forever for granting you the healing he deserve and putting the devil to shame.

  8. God is really the healer of all sickness as the saying goes”doctors cure Jesus heals . I am a living witness to this poem.

  9. God is truly kind and merciful. I think I’m a brand snatched from the fire too! He has saved me from the flames of disappointment, sorrow and heartache so many times I can’t even count. He’s always there for me, rebuking my tormentor and saving me from agony. I really admire the graphics aunty, the fire is so vivid. It paints the picture quite nicely. A truly beautiful poem aunty ?
