A Settled Fact
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. — MARK 5:34
While on the bed of sickness as a sixteen-year-old boy, I struggled with the subject of miracles. And every time I would have a good scripture about healing, the devil would come to my mind and say, “Healing is not for us today.” And sometimes he would say, “Now that’s not for the Church; that’s just for the Jews.” Well, I’d listen to those words and put the light out. What little light I had on the subject of healing would be gone.
I didn’t know how to follow my spirit. I didn’t know that I could follow my spirit. I now know that it was my spirit that knew about healing and miracles, because my spirit received the life and nature of God in it when I got born again. And my spirit was picking up things from God and trying to pass them on to my mind. My spirit told me that there was help for me.
I had been bedfast for six months. As I was reading one day from the Gospel of Mark, I read about the woman with the issue of blood. I heard these words on the inside of me, in my spirit, “Did you notice that the woman’s faith made her whole?” I said out loud, “No, I didn’t notice that.”
Then I heard on the inside of me, “Did you ever hear anyone say that faith has been done away with?” You see, her faith made her whole. After thinking a little bit, I said, “No, I never heard a preacher say that.” Then I heard that inward voice say, “No, and you never will. For if faith has been done away with, then there are no Christians and there’s no Church. Ephesians 2:8 says, ‘For by grace are ye saved through faith. . . .’”
Finally, I heard these words, “If faith hasn’t been done away with and her faith made her whole, then your faith can make you whole.” From that moment on, no one could talk me out of the fact that healing is for us today!
Confession: Faith hasn’t been done away with. If faith made the woman with the issue of blood whole, then MY faith can make ME whole!
