There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue ofthe wise is health. — PROVERBS 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 and 24, and I said . . . ! Words were spoken!
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 sixty-five 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. Why? 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. And 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.
