Believers know Jesus has the power to instantaneously heal us of all physical, emotional and mental ailments and pain. But there are times when the deliverance and breakthrough come through a process of intimately walking with the Lord and clinging to Him moment by moment. Michael Lombardo's testimony is full of both types of manifestation from the hand of God.

But removing the negative mental effects of drug abuse took a process of walking it out with the Lord. Ecstasy was one of Michael's favorite drugs in his teens, and after abusing this substance for years, he developed a minor stutter, his thought processes became cloudy and his creative abilities were stunted.
