Those were the days (1992) when I had begun experiencing the wonderful presence of Jesus in my life. I had given my life over to him and given my burdens and grief’s into his hands. So even though circumstances were in the negative. I had one hope and that was my trust in Jesus. I believed he would get me through. My prayers to him were fervent. The theory exams did not carry much weightage; the practical was the one that mattered. I still remember it was Sunday that the practical exams took place. Those days I had made it a habit to fast on Sundays and so I went for the exams fasting. I had a throbbing headache by the time I reached the exam hall. One internal and two external examiners. Two short cases and one big case(patients with sicknesses) to be examined and diagnosed in the given time. And it was really tough. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and a lot of grilling. One of my colleagues was sent away for just talking casually to someone else during the exam time. That for him meant another wait for six months to reappear. I was glad that it was finally over by 5 p.m. Six of us appeared on the first day and five on the next. The speculations were that only 3-4 out of eleven will pass. I couldn’t sleep for the next two days thinking of the result. Despite speculations, despite unfavorable circumstances; despite evaluations, despite unfavorable people, my hope lay in Jesus because I knew only He could save me. And that is exactly what his name means: Jesus - He saves At around 2 a.m. a couple of nights later, there was frantic knocking on my door. Three guys heaving and panting and three wonderful words - “You have passed”. I didn’t know what to do. Laugh or cry. But one thing I did and that was to thanks Jesus for his saving grace. The predictions were true. Only four of us passed. But I was one of them. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord. The Bible says, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) And that is exactly what I did. Not only did I pass, but Jesus helped me to get second rank in the university. Praise the Lord. Truly, Jesus cares for us like no one else can. For nothing is impossible with God. (Luke 1:37) 50. XRAY DIAGNOSIS My grandmother once had persistent cough and wheezing for around 4-5 months. I put her on medication but the condition persisted. I got her blood tests done and changed the medicines, but there wasn’t any improvement. The x-ray of her chest didn’t reveal any problems with her lungs or bronchial system. She and others at home were disturbed by the constant hacking cough and I was in a quandary. We were praying about the matter regularly, but a healing didn’t come soon. Then one night the Lord showed me a dream. In the dream, I am examining my grandmother’s x-ray and this x- ray is different from the x-ray taken in the hospital. While examining the x-ray, certain parts of the lungs are focused upon and I can clearly visualize worms in the lungs. That was all I saw in the dream.
When I woke up, I realized that I had missed the real cause of the cough. The Lord here was showing that the cough was “allergic” because of larvae of worms that had migrated to the lung because of worm infestation. Mild ascariasis (round worm infection) with only a few parasites in the body may cause no symptoms. Symptoms occur with moderate or heavy infestations, sometimes progressing as the parasite migrates through the body. After a person ingest ascaris eggs, they hatch in the intestine and the larvae migrate into the lungs causing persistent cough, shortness of breath and wheezing. Once I knew the diagnosis (and this couldn’t be wrong because it was the Lord himself who had shown it), treating her was easy and within a few days, my grandmother was perfectly healed. To the question, “Is there a better physician than the Creator himself?” The answer is No, and that’s final. All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom. (Isaiah 28:29) 51. SICKNESS & HEALING My parents had been suffering from acute gastroenteritis and I had been taking care of them. It seemed to be a virulent infection with my mother and then my father getting infected in quick succession. As a doctor, I took the necessary precautions so as not to get the infection myself. But I had a fear that I would also get the infection because of close contact in helping my parents and checking their condition often. After a couple of days of my father getting the infection, he had to be admitted in the hospital because of repeated diarrhea & vomits. I was with him during the daytime and then went home in the evening. As I slept at home after the busy day, I saw a dream in which I am trying to escape the clutches of an evil presence. I keep evading it by running and hiding but suddenly the evil presence just grabs hold of my hand and pulls me away and I exclaim in the dream, "Finally it got hold of me." But sooner than said, in the dream I was shown to be in a healthy and hale condition chatting with my friends. The next day as I woke up, I experienced severe abdominal pain. Later on I had diarrhea; symptoms as like my parents experienced. But it did not last for long; as in the dream, the sickness was healed very soon. What the Lord showed me in the dream was that I too would suffer the sickness which I feared would come upon me, but it would go away soon. Of course, I had already prayed on waking up after seeing the dream and after the sickness started, my family and church also joined in the prayers. I had to take medicines but I believe that the Lord shortened the period of the sickness and I didn't have to miss Sunday worship and my ministering. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. (Psalm 16:7)
