For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.(Ps. 119:89)
I was preaching at a convention in St. Louis on one occasion. After the service was over, a gentleman stopped me in the lobby of the hotel to speak with me.
He said, "I want you to meet my wife and three children. Last year when you were in Syracuse, New York, teaching on faith, we came to hear you. We're from Boston, Massachusetts, and it was the first Full Gospel meeting we had ever been to.
At that time, my boy was thirteen and a half years old, and doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. They encouraged me to take him to some specialists in New York City, so I did."
The gentleman continued, "The specialists said that he had an incurable disease and there was nothing they could do for him. In fact, the doctors said that they only knew of three people on the North American continent who had ever had this disease.
They told us that he would be dead by the time he turned fifteen. But somebody told us about God's healing power, and we went to the convention in Syracuse seeking help."
At the meeting in Syracuse, I taught the people to let their heart agree with the Word they speak out of their mouth. God's Word doesn't change, and since He said, "Jesus took your infirmities and bare your sicknesses" (Matt. 8:17), you can settle on that!
Confession: According to the Word of God, I am healed. I believe it in my heart, and I say it with my mouth.
