Obey the Voice of the Lord
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. — DEUTERONOMY 28:2
After the man who had been burned was healed, I took the next one aside and dealt with him individually. I asked him what was wrong with him. Then I said to him, “The Lord said, ‘Run!’” He whirled around and started running. Eleven out of the twelve were instantly healed as they obeyed God.
When I got to the twelfth one, I said, “Are you ready to run?” I thought she would be just as thrilled as the rest of them were and take off running. Instead, she said, “Oh, Brother Hagin, I can’t run. I have arthritis.”
I said to her, “Didn’t you hear as I talked to the other people? In fact, a woman who couldn’t even walk down to the front by herself was healed. Three men had to hold her up. She had arthritis, too, but as she started to run, her body straightened out and was all right. Did you see her?”
She said, “Yes, but I know I can’t do it.”
I answered, “All I know to do is tell you what the Lord told me. And you saw that eleven people have already been healed.”
She turned around and made one or two feeble steps. I said, “You got down here by yourself. Some of the rest of them had canes and crutches. You don’t even need a cane or a crutch.”
Then, without thinking, I said to her, “Turn around and look at me. You don’t want to run, do you? Something on the inside of you rose up against it, didn’t it?”
She said, “Yes, it sure did.”
I said, “You just go sit down and do without it. You’re not going to get it as long as you’re thinking like that.”
Confession: I obey the voice of the Lord. I hearken unto His voice, and unto His Word, to do all of His commandments. Then I am blessed. Then I am healed.
