Whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.(Phil. 4:8)
I remember a woman who was bedfast at the age of thirty-six. She had terminal cancer and was living with her mother so that her mother could take care of her.
She was brought up in the Pentecostal church so she knew about divine healing. People all over the country were praying for her. She was on her deathbed, and doctors said she could die just any minute.
She was brought to one of my meetings. She listened to my healing testimony, and I laid hands on her.
The very next day, this woman was perfectly all right! Instead of an ambulance coming to take her body away, her husband came to her mother’s and took her back home. She was able to do housework and tend to her two small children.
This is what she did. She said to her mother, “Well, that man who gave his testimony didn’t lie. He’s a preacher, but God is no respecter of persons. What He did for him, He will do for me. I’m healed now. I won’t need any more medicine. Just throw it away.”
She never had any more pain, and all of her symptoms left. She had been on pain medicine for so long that she should have had withdrawal symptoms. But she didn’t; she was perfectly fine.
I would never advise anyone to throw medicine away, but my testimony inspired her faith. A good testimony inspires faith. The Word of God gives faith, but sometimes a testimony inspires a person to use his or her faith.
Confession: The Word of God gives me faith, and a good testimony will inspire my faith.
