"There is that speaks like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health" (Prov. 12:18).
I first learned the secret of words "faith words" when I spent sixteen months on the bed of sickness, given up to die by five doctors.
But one August day in 1934, as I lay in that bed, I acted on Mark 11:23-24, and I said "I believe that I receive healing for the deformed heart. I believe I receive healing for the incurable blood disease.
I believe I receive healing for the paralysis. I believe I receive healing from the top of my head to the soles of my feet." Within the hour, I was standing on my feet beside the bed healed!
Now more than 65 years have come and gone, and I haven't even had a headache. And I won't have one. But if I did have one, which I haven't, I wouldn't say my head hurt. Because Jesus said, "He shall have whatsoever he saith" (Mark 11:23).
If someone were to ask me in such a case, "How are you feeling?" I'd reply, "I'm fine, thank you. You see, the Word of God says that by His stripes I am healed. So I believe that I am healed as the Word of God says." And I would speak the right words, for the tongue of the wise is health!
Confession: My tongue is health. It speaks words of life and health. I talk health. Therefore, I walk in health.
