Route 32. You will not smell of smoke.

When Jean was hospialised for three weeks with a skin disease that came out of nowhere, pretty much all of her body looked like the above, it looked almost as if she had been scalded. The medicine and steroids she was given only made matters worse. Jean needed wrapped in bandages from head to foot to try and eliviate the constant itching. But Jean held on to her Faith firmly even when they were checking her for underlying cancer. The doctors could do nothing, in the end God would be glorified and even her consultant would be heard to say 'Well Jean, you got your miracle.' Alelluia, Praise God.

What ever you are going through today, have Faith in God and the healing power of the blood of Jesus. The Bible tells us that by His (Jesus's) stripes we are healed.

'Isaiah 53:5 New King James Version

5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed.

While going through things (which we all do) it is important to hold onto God's word. Jean had a word from God early on that 'she would not smell of smoke'. Now Jean knew strightaway that was from the Bible, that is why it is important as Christians that we know our Bible. When God speaks, it will come from His Word. The scripture this comes from is found in Daniel Chapter 3.

Daniel 3:27 New King James Version

27 And the satraps, administrators, governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together, and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them.

It was often thought that the chances of Jean's skin returning completely no normal with out any marks or scars was going to need a miracle. Well today Jean's skin has been completely healed with no marks or scars. Jean took this as confirmation that God healed her and she 'didn't even smell of smoke.' that is there was no trace of her ordeal. God id good.
