Faith For Another
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him — 2 CHRONICLES 16:9
I was told I had an emergency telephone call. My sister, Oleta, was on the line, crying hysterically. She told me her daughter’s baby had been born dead. The doctor now said the baby was alive, but he couldn’t live, and he wouldn’t be normal if he did live, because of a lack of oxygen to his brain. The doctor told the family, “The baby’s face is deformed. It would be better if you didn’t see him. We’ll just dispose of the body when the baby does expire.”
Oleta cried, “Benny [the baby’s father] wants you to pray.”
I knew my family were just babies when it came to spiritual matters, and I thought about Mark 11:23, “Oleta, where is Benny?” I asked.
“Right outside the phone booth,” she replied.
“Now listen — the minute you hang up, turn to Benny and say, ‘Benny, Uncle Ken said the baby will live and not die. He will be all right.’”
“Do you think so?” Oleta asked.
“No, I don’t think so; I know so. I’ve got Jesus’ Word for it.”
Not ten minutes later, a nurse came running out and told them, “You can see the baby! He’s all right. While we were looking at him, his face filled out just like you’d blow up a balloon!”
You can’t shut God out, if you’ll believe Him.
Confession: I believe God. I believe He desires to show Himself strong on my behalf.
