Cast Not Away Your Confidence!
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. — HEBREWS 10:35
After I said that to Margene’s mother, my wife would say, “I wonder what happened to Margene’s mother?”
I would always answer, “I’ll tell you exactly what happened to her. She was healed. Her mind was restored.”
She would say, “Well, we haven’t heard anything.”
I would say, “I don’t have to hear anything. I spoke it. That’s it. That’s all I need.”
About a month after I spoke with Margene and her mother, my wife received a letter from Margene. It read, “Brother and Sister Hagin, I would like to come down and have you all pray with me about something, if that’s all right with you.” So my wife wrote back and told her to come.
Margene didn’t say anything about her mother in the letter. When she drove up in front of the parsonage, we went out there to greet her. My wife and I both said at the same time, “What ever happened to your mother?”
She said, “Brother and Sister Hagin, let me tell you. I took her home, and the next day she wasn’t any better. The third day at 3:00 p.m., we were in the living room in my house, and, all of a sudden, her mind was all right. It happened in an instant! She got down on her knees and wanted me to pray with her. The Lord saved her and filled her with the Holy Ghost!
“Then, my dad, who also lives with us, got saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. He had claimed that he was an infidel, but when he saw what God had done for Mama, he got down on his knees and said to me, ‘Put your hand on my head and pray.’ God saved Dad and filled him with the Holy Ghost too!”
Later, Margene’s mom and dad lived in their own house. Her mama began doing all the housework and the cooking. Years later, they were both in good health. They were in church every Sunday morning and every Sunday night. They paid their tithes and supported the house of God.
Confession: I cast not away my confidence, for it hath great recompense of reward!
