Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.(Matt. 9:29)
Sixteen years later, the woman who had polio and was paralyzed wrote me a letter, which read,"Brother Hagin, I just wanted you to know that I'm out of my wheelchair."
It took her many years to get out. No, it didn't take God that long; it took her that long. She couldn't believe that God wanted to heal her and that she could be healed as quickly as her daughter had been healed.
She continued to say, "A woman came to my house because I couldn't do any housework. I couldn't even use my hand to put a tape in the tape player, so she helped me. Every day, this woman came to my house, put a tape in the player, and I kept listening to tapes from your services.
"Over the course of several years, I received my healing. I'm out of my wheelchair, and I'm doing all my housework. It's so wonderful to get up in the morning and fix my husband's breakfast before he leaves for work."
Now why did she receive her healing gradually? Because she took hold of the truth gradually. Was that the highest will of God? No, it wasn't God's best, but it sure did beat spending the rest of her life in a wheelchair.
She could have been healed like her daughter was in that first meeting. But she just couldn't believe that she could receive healing that easily.
Confession I believe I receive healing from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. It is easy to receive healing.
