Waiting Two Years for a Miraculous Healing

CBN.com -Prior to 2013, Billie Trevett of Whitesboro, Texas had a limited view of God. “I believed in God. I knew God was good,” she says, “but I didn’t know how much He loved me.”
In April of that year, though, Billie would find out.
At the time, she was pregnant with her third child. “I would lie in bed, and I would try to lay on my right side, and I couldn’t for more than three or four minutes because there would be a sharp pain that would run through my hip. So I would have to roll over to the other side or try to lay on my back, which is nearly impossible when you are seven or eight months pregnant,” she recalls. “It was very disheartening.”
Billie would also often feel a painful catch in her hip. “I couldn’t get going like I should have been able to. It would take me several steps to get moving,” she says. “The only way I could describe it is that it felt like my bone was cracked when I would put pressure on it.”
In early 2013, Billie began praying for her hip to be healed. “I had been crying out to God to reveal himself to me in a way that I had never experienced before,” she says. “I was worried about my ability to live my life in the way I had always planned to live it, to be able to run and chase my children, without having to worry about having limitations on me. I know that’s not God’s plan for me.”
In April, Billie was watching The 700 Club when she heard Terry Meeuwsen give a Word of Knowledge. “Someone else, you have a deteriorating hip socket. You haven’t had anything done with it surgically, but God’s healing that condition for you. You’re just going to suddenly notice that you’re not limping, and you don’t have that ache--that deep, deep bone ache—in your hip anymore,” Terry said on the show.
Billie sat up. “Immediately, I heard God’s still small voice say, ‘That is your healing,’” Billie remembers. “At that moment, I decided that I was not going to limit God anymore, that I was going to believe God to be who He says He is, and I was going to take that healing, and I was going to claim it for myself. I felt the power of God run through my body, and I got up on that couch. I praised God for healing me, and I was immediately healed.”
Billie has been pain-free since that day.
“That evening, my husband and I were laying in bed, and I was able to lay on my side, with my head on his chest, and I don’t know how long I laid there, but it was a long time, because I hadn’t been able to do that for over a year.”
Billie says the experience gave her a whole new perspective of God and His character. “This did alter my view of God,” she says. “To know that God loved me enough to heal me, so that I could enjoy my life, and do the little things that make me happy. That is an awesome feeling.”
