The Never-Failing Remedy of God’s Word
. . . he shall have whatsoever he saith. — MARK 11:23
The next morning, Dr. Yeomans and her sister fed their patients breakfast. Then Dr. Yeomans asked this particular woman if she had been saying what she told her to say. She said, “Oh, it seemed like I didn’t sleep but ten minutes last night. I must have said it ten thousand times, but it doesn’t mean a thing in the world to me. I don’t understand it.”
Dr. Yeomans said, “That’s all right, honey. You just keep saying it over and over again, every waking moment.”
If people would work at receiving divine healing like they ought to, it would work for them. But so many times, they only do it half-heartedly and then go on thinking about something else. In that case, it won’t work for them. They have to get down to business.
Well, on the third day, Dr. Yeomans went to this woman’s room again and read scriptures on the subject of healing to her for a solid hour. Then Dr. Yeomans said, “Are you still saying what I told you to say?”
She said, “Oh, yes, but it still doesn’t mean a thing in the world to me. I’m not getting anything out of it.” Dr. Yeomans again told her to just keep saying it.
At about 11:00 a.m. that same day, Dr. Yeomans and her sister were downstairs washing the breakfast dishes when they heard somebody upstairs shouting. They heard running footsteps, so they rushed out into the hall. And there was the woman who had come in only two days before. She was rushing down the stairway, yelling, “Dr. Yeomans, did you know I no longer have TB?”
“Yes,” she said. “I’ve been trying to tell you that for three days.” You see, it got down in her spirit. That’s when God’s Word works for you. God’s Word never fails. That woman initiated healing for herself.
Confession: I can initiate healing for myself by putting my faith in the Word of God. God’s Word says that I have been redeemed from all manner of sickness and disease.
