Let them [God's words] not depart from thine eyes.... (Prov. 4:21)
I shared with this dear old woman, "The doctors said I was dying. I lived and relived my death over and over in my mind. In my mind's eye, I saw the doctors turn my body over to the undertaker to prepare it for burial. I saw them take the casket and go to the church. I saw them roll the casket down the aisle and set it before the pulpit.
"I heard the people sing the last song and pray the last prayer. I saw them close the lid and roll the casket down the aisle. I saw the pallbearers put it into the hearse. I saw the funeral procession. I saw all of this many times in my mind.
"I watched as a graveside prayer was said. I saw everyone leave. I saw them put the casket into the ground. I saw the flowers on the fresh mound of dirt. I saw the flowers wither and die. I saw the hot sun of summer beat down on the grave. I saw myself dead.
"But I got hold of Proverbs 4:21 and began to see myself alive. I asked myself, 'What would I do if I were up?' I said, 'I'd preach.
That's what I'd do.' So I began to make sermon notes and get ready to preach."
I said to the woman, "See yourself well. See your huge stomach shrunk down to its normal size. See yourself preaching again. See yourself traveling and holding meetings. It doesn't matter if you are eighty-two years old. God doesn't want you to die like this. God wants to heal you."
Ten months later, I went back to that church, and that woman was perfectly healed! She was traveling and preaching. Instead of looking eighty-two years old, she didn't look a day over fifty-five.
She said to the pastor and me, "I'm sure glad you didn't let me die. I just came back from my first meeting since I received my healing. I'm going to preach all summer and the rest of the winter.
"I did what you said, Brother Hagin. I began to see myself well. I looked at my huge stomach and saw it flat." She had kept the Word of God before her eyes.
Confession I see myself well. I see every symptom leaving. I see myself living a normal and healthy life.
