I Believe with All My Heart
Vicki Jamison

I am reminded of a mother who brought her child to one of Kenneth Hagin's service for prayer. The child had paralysis, and her legs were in braces all the time. Without the braces her legs would dangle uncontrollably. As Brother Hagin laid hands on this child and prayed for her, he felt the anointing of God. Many times I too can feel this anointing in my hands. However, I don't depend on whether I feel it or not, I depend on God's Word. Anytime I begin to rely upon what I feel in my hands, I get into Satan's territory. God will sometimes allow us to feel this anointing in our hands, but we cannot go by what we feel, for then we are in the sense realm and that is not where we contact God. We touch God in the realm of our spirit (John 4:23-24).

Although Brother Hagin felt the anointing of God as he prayed for this paralyzed child, there was no apparent change in her condition. When the mother took the child home and got her ready for bed, she took her braces off and her legs dangles lifelessly, as they always had. The next morning when she got up, she saw that the child's legs were no different. She put her in the tub to bathe her, and as she looked at her lifeless legs she began to cry. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she said, "Oh, God, why didn't you heal my baby? Lord, don't you know what will happen to my child unless you heal her? Why didn't you heal her, Lord? I believed."

The only hope for the child, as far as man was concerned, was for her to have surgery. Surgeons would have to weld the bone from the hip down to the ankle. And still she would be stiff-legged and would have to walk with crutches all her life.

The Lord spoke to her spirit and said, "Do you believe that Brother Hagin is a liar? He told you according to the Word of God that the child was healed, by the stripes of Jesus. That child is healed. Brother Hagin felt my own anointing go from his hands into that child as he laid hands on her. Do you think Brother Hagin is a liar?"

She said, "No, I don't Lord." Then she began to understand what faith is. Faith didn't see those paralyzed legs. Faith said, I believe...I received last night. She began to thank God that by the stripes of Jesus her child was healed. She said, "I thank you Lord that it's done. I thank you that by the stripes of Jesus my child is well. I thank you that the Word says my child is healed. I thank you that the anointing of the Holy Spirit for healing that was operating through Brother Hagin has healed my child." Instantly the legs snapped into place and became straight.

That morning she took the child to Brother Hagin's morning service, and that child ran up and down the church aisles, completely healed!

This is what faith is: "...perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses." It wasn't the child's faith that healed her. Her mother had authority over her, just as you have over your children. You have authority over your family until they become accountable unto God and have as much knowledge of him as you do. You have authority over your child, and you can believe for that child's healing yourself. Your faith can operate for him. Faith can say, "I believe the Word of God, and by His stripes my child is healed."

That mother would never have known what healing was had she kept looking at the girl's paralyzed legs and believed what her senses told her, for everything she observed said that the child wasn't healed. But she listened to the voice of God. She believed, "perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses."

John 4:23-24 NLT – But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”



"This Mortal must put on immortality.....Death is swallowed up in victory" 1 Cor. 15:53-54
