How to Keep Your Healing
Kenneth E. Hagin
“In a Full Gospel church in one of our western states there was a man who had been born with a deformed foot and a leg that was about four inches shorter than the other. He couldn’t walk without crutches due to his crippled condition.
His deformed leg was not as big as the other one; it had not grown right. But in one of my healing meetings in the church, he got healed.
His crippled leg grew out to the same length as the other, and his deformed foot straightened out.
At 37 years of age, this man was able to wear the first matching pair of shoes he had ever worn in his life.
Six weeks after my meeting was over, the pastor was taking prayer requests on a Wednesday night.
A woman got up and said, “Pastor, I was healed during Brother Hagin’s meeting, and for six weeks I’ve been all right. But all my symptoms have come back on me, and I’m worse than ever. I want you all to pray for me.”
Without thinking, the pastor agreed.
Then this fellow who had been healed of the crippled foot and short leg stood up and said, “Pastor, may I say a word? I think it will help this sister.
“You all know me. I was born crippled, and I’ve been saved and filled with the Holy Spirit for several years now. I, too, was healed in Brother Hagin’s meeting. You know I’m perfectly healed.
Just this past week I was walking on Main Street when suddenly a pain hit me in the ankle, and that foot that had been healed turned in.
I almost fell. In fact, I would have fallen if I hadn’t reached my hand out and leaned against a store building.
That foot turned in with such pain I could hardly stand it.
I just slid down the wall and sat on the sidewalk.
I don’t know what people thought, because I picked up my ankle and foot in my hands and yelled out loud, ‘No, you don’t, Mr. Devil! You don’t put that back on me! God’s healed me.’ And every symptom left. I’ve been all right ever since.”
He maintained his healing. Although the church prayed, the woman lost hers.
Why? Under those conditions prayer won’t work, because she already had denied what God had done.
Many times you lose by praying! You lose by turning in prayer requests!
That may startle you, but what you’re doing is confessing, “I don’t have it.”
He looked around. Finally she came and told Him all that had happened.
JESUS TOLD HER THAT HER FAITH MADE HER WHOLE!!
IF HER FAITH CAN SOLICIT A MIRACLE – HER FAITH CAN HOLD ONTO THAT MIRACLE!
HER MEASURE OF FAITH WORKS AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR OTHER HEALINGS!
HER FAITH WILL CATALYZE FINANCES AND ANSWERS!
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH!!
THIS LIFE OF FAITH IS AVAILABLE FOR WHOSOEVER WISHES TO PARTICIPATE!!
