...God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
(Rom. 4:17)
When I was a Baptist minister, I had an interesting experience that will help you in your own faith. I went to bed one Sunday night after church feeling fine.

But I woke up on Monday morning, and the right side of my face was paralyzed. It was numb. I could reach up there and pinch it without feeling a thing. I tried to wrinkle up my forehead, but the right side wouldn't wrinkle. The right side of my mouth wouldn't move, either.

I said to myself, I know what I'll do. I'll go down to the Full Gospel Tabernacle on Wednesday night and have the pastor anoint me with oil. He can lay hands on me and I'll be healed.

So on Wednesday night, I went down to the Full Gospel Tabernacle. They weren't having a healing service, but when the service was over, I stood up in the back and said, "Pastor, I want you to pray for my healing before we go."

Now when I opened my mouth to say that, the left side of my mouth sort of ran all the way around to my ear, but the right side of my mouth didn't move!

The pastor told me to come down to the front and he would pray for me. I walked right down the aisle, stood in front of the pulpit, and he anointed me with oil on my forehead. He laid his hand on my head and prayed.

I don't remember one word he said. I didn't pay any attention. I was waiting to hear him say, "Amen." That's when I turned my faith loose. In other words, that's when I started calling those things that be not as though they were.

I turn my faith loose. I call those things in my body that be not as though they were. I call myself well. I call myself healed. I speak to every part of my body to function as it was designed to function.
