Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
I knew a woman years ago who became desperately sick. She couldn't do her housework; she couldn't get up and cook breakfast for her unsaved husband, or do much of anything, for that matter.
One night she said to me, "Brother Hagin, you may have wondered why I haven't been in the healing line."
I said, "I sure have."
"Well," she said, "you know I've suffered. I've been sick for nineteen years. I've finally decided that the Lord made me sick so my husband would get saved."
I said, "Dear Lord! Your husband would come closer to getting saved with a well wife than he would with a sick wife. That's not God. You're letting the devil rob you of your healing and cheat you out of your husband's salvation. For goodness' sake, don't tell him that God made you sick so he would get saved! What kind of impression would that leave on him concerning God? He would think that God stole his wife from him. No! It's the devil that's making you sick."
When she said, "Well, maybe I'm wrong about it," I said, "You sure are. You're definitely wrong about it."
But, thank God, this woman began studying the subject and got healed. When her husband found out that God had healed her, he was so grateful, he got saved!
Every good gift and every perfect gift comes from God. Because health and healing come from God, I receive my health and healing.Source: Health Food Devotions by Kenneth E. Hagin.
