Testimony | New Arches


Paul experiences a miracle when God heals his flat feet.

By Paul Adelsman, Chicago, IL, USA.

When I was born, I had no arches in my feet. The muscles didn't develop quite right and when that happens, it has a domino effect on the rest of the body. My ankles didn't develop as they should have, my knees didn't and so on. When I was 17, I dislocated my right knee climbing over a couch (it doesn't take much when your joints aren't right). I later dislocated my left knee when I was 20, and when I was 27 I injured my right knee again.

Doctors said I would probably have arthritis in my knees as I get older, and perhaps other problems too. I chose not to run for exercise because my knees hurt after just 2 miles of jogging. I play drums regularly and have never liked the thought that my knees or legs could be a hindrance to my main passion in life.

We recently had some students in town from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA. They came to advance the Kingdom of God in the city of Chicago. When the students were visiting my church, one of them had a word of knowledge for people without arches in their feet. I knew I was being targeted by God. After receiving prayer, I didn't notice any immediate difference, but as time went on I felt a strength returning to my feet, and then to my calf muscles. One of the students sensed that I would wake up the next day and have totally new arches. I had the same sense and chose to believe God for a continued and finished healing.

The very next day, I noticed that I was standing differently, and I could actually feel arches in my feet! I am totally floored by God’s love and goodness, and I am so amazed at the ways He surprises me when I least expect it.
