For more than two decades, Dalia was confined to a wheelchair. She couldn’t feel her legs and feet, and she couldn’t walk until she went to a revival conference that changed everything.
Paralyzed From Waist Down
In December of 1987, Dalia Knox was in a car accident with her sister and brother-in-law. A drunk driver hit them. It left Dalia paralyzed from her waist down. Doctors told her she would likely have to use a wheelchair for the rest of her life. It devastated Dalia, but she was determined to live her life.
As a gospel singer, she continued to work in music ministry. But she admitted that her life was hard. But despite the struggle, she firmly believed God would heal her. People constantly prayed for her. But after a decade had passed, and she found no change in her condition, she started to lose hope.
While attending a Christian conference, she met Bishop Levy Knox, who later on became her husband. He became a source of inspiration to Dalia. And he also believed God would heal her, encouraging her not to lose hope.
22 Years In A Wheelchair
Then in 2010, she and her husband attended a revival conference. At this time, it had been more than two decades that Dalia was in a wheelchair.
The evangelist walked up to her and started praying for her. While Pastor Nathan Morris was praying for her, she began to feel something happening in her legs.
“The heart of it was are you willing to risk your pride and take a step of faith even if you fall?” Dalia recalled.
She rose from the wheelchair but stumbled and sat back down, still fighting the doubts in her mind. Then the pastor declared over her, “let faith arise in this woman of God!”
Suddenly, righteous indignation rose up in Dalia, and she told everyone to just worship to drown out the doubts. They helped her back on her feet, and Dalia started walking around the church.
“It was like the awakening. This is really happening,” Dalia said while in tears.
On that day, God fulfilled His promise of healing to Dalia. And over the following weeks, God began to strengthen her legs. And three weeks later, she walked in front of her own congregation for the first time!
