... I [God] will take sickness away from the midst of thee.(Ex. 23:25)
In Proverbs 4:20, we find that in addition to attending to God's words, we are supposed to incline our ear unto His sayings. It's strange, but we often incline our ears to what everyone else is saying, rather than to what God is saying.
One time I was laying hands on the sick in a healing line. I came to a woman and asked, "What did you come for?"
She said, "I guess I came for healing."
"What's wrong with you?" I asked.
"The doctor said I have an incurable disease," she answered.
"Well," I said, "isn't it wonderful that you and I have inside information! We have information inside the Bible. Himself took your infirmities and bare your sickness. The Lord will heal you."
She said, "Yes, but the doctor said it was incurable. I don't think I'll get anything."
You see, she was not inclining her ear to what God said. She was inclining her ear to what the doctor said. She needed to listen to God's sayings, and He said, "...I will take sickness away from the midst of thee" (Ex. 23:25).
Confession I incline my ear to God's sayings. I listen to what He said. And He said that He would take sickness away from me.
