For we walk by faith, not by sight.
(2 Cor. 5:7)
In 1971, I was preaching at the First Assembly of God Church in Pasadena, Texas. I had known the pastor of that church, Rev. R.V. Kemp, and his wife for a number of years.
His wife had been operated on twice for cancer at a well-known cancer hospital in Houston, Texas. When the cancer came back a third time, the doctors said that it had spread to every gland in her body, and gave her three months to live.
Brother Kemp brought his wife to one of the services. When my wife and I saw her, we almost wept; she looked like the picture of death.
She came forward, and I laid hands on her. The power of God fell on her and she said, "This is it. This is it. I know according to the Word of God I'm healed."
Yet she still had all the symptoms. She was still helpless. Her husband had to get her out of bed and dress her. He had to prepare her meals, then pick her up in his arms, and sit her down in a chair at the table.
I know according to the Word of God that I'm healed. I choose to walk by faith in God's Word, rather than by sight.Source: Health Food Devotions by Kenneth E. Hagin.
