Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24)
My wife and I laid hands on Ruth. I could feel the life of God pouring out of me. My wife sensed it too.
We could both sense that life pouring out of us into her.
I said, "Ruth, there's your healing. There's your healing." You see, I could administer the healing power to her, but I couldn't accept it for her.
Spiritual things are just as real as material things are. Many people think that if you have something, you can just give it to another person. But, no, the other person must accept it.
If he doesn't, then he won't have it. The same thing is true in the Spirit. And you can know when people take hold and when they don't take hold.
My wife said, "There it is, Ruth." Ruth said, "All right, I accept it. I receive it."
Instantly, Ruth's body relaxed and straightened out. That's when I saw that her hands were bleeding because her nails had dug into them as she clenched her fists in pain.
She was instantly healed. And she never had another attack of appendicitis.
Every believer has the life of God abiding in him or her. It doesn't just belong to the preacher.
Now the reason you may feel the life of God pouring into another person's body is, the life of God is in you. But it makes no difference whether there is a tangible manifestation of power or not. Whether you sense anything pouring out of you or not, if you go ahead and believe the Word of God, the healing will come into manifestation.
Confession: Laying on of hands belongs to the whole Church. Laying on of hands belongs to me. I lay hands on the sick and they will recover whether I sense anything or not, because I believe the Word of God. The healing will come into manifestation.
