The Florida sun is a lot stronger than Michigan sun or even North Carolina sun (I know because I just moved from Michigan to North Carolina), but that fact seemed to slip my mind when my friend and I went to Naples, FL for our spring break. When we went to the beach, I put sunscreen on but it was only 15 SPF. As we continued to go to the beach Friday, Saturday and Sunday my body was burnt. Sunday, my friend and I visited Life Christian Church and listened to Pastor Tracy speak. Her message of rebuking the devil in the Lord’s name when her previous illness came back to attack her and then vanishing because of her such strong faith in God was very inspiring to me. Sunday was spent at the beach as was Monday, and by this time I can feel sun poisoning as my back is peeling and on fire.
As I laid in my hotel room on my bed in pain, the symptoms of sun poisoning (which I’ve had before) came upon me. In a split second I remembered what Pastor Tracy had done and I started to do the same. Saying in Jesus name this poisoning will not hurt me, God doesn’t want me in pain, etc. After about 10 minutes of continuously repeating these phrases, from the center of my body a coolness spread throughout me and my sun poisoning no longer hurt. My body was not in pain and I didn’t have the hot/cold feeling. God took away the pain I was going through. He took the poison out of my body. I know that, because if he didn’t my body would have been in a lot more pain and the process of having it and taking care of it would have been much longer. I am so thankful that I had heard what Pastor Tracy advised and did it for myself, and God did his magic.
