Smith Wigglesworth Testimony: Faith in what the Word Declares!
I was taken to see a beautiful nine-year-old boy who was lying on a bed.
The mother and father were distracted because he had been lying there
for months. They had to lift and feed him; he was like a statue with
flashing eyes. As soon as I entered the place the Lord revealed to me the
cause of the trouble, so I said to the mother, “The Lord shows me there
is something wrong with his stomach.” She said, “Oh no, we have had
two physicians and they say it is paralysis of the mind.” I said, “God
reveals to me it is his stomach.” “Oh, no, it isn’t. These physicians
ought to know, they have x-rayed him.”
The gentleman who brought me there said to the mother, “You have sent for
this man, you have been the means of his coming, now don’t you stand out
against him. This an knows what he has got to do.” But Dr. Jesus knows more
than that. He knows everything. You have no need to ring the bell for doctors.
All you have to do is ring your bell for Jesus and He will come
down. You should never turn to human things, because divine things
are so much better and just at your call. Who shall interfere with the
divine mind of the Spirit which has all revelation, who understands the
whole condition of life?
For the Word of God declares He knoweth all things, is well acquainted
with the manifestation of thy body, for everything is naked and open before
Him with whom we have to do. Having the mind of the Spirit we understand
what is the will of God. I prayed over this boy and laid my hands on his stomach. He became sick and vomited a worm thirteen inches long and was perfectly restored.
Who knows? God knows. When shall we come into the knowledge of God!
When we cease from our own mind and allow ourselves to become
clothed with the mind and authority of the mighty God.
The Spirit of God would have us understand there is nothing that can
interfere with our coming into perfect blessing except unbelief. Unbelief
is a terrible hindrance. As soon as we are willing to allow the Holy
Ghost to have His way, we will find great things will happen all the time.
But oh, how much of our own human reason we have to get rid of, how
much human planning we have to become divorced from. What would
happen right now if everybody believed God? I love the thought that
God the Holy Ghost wants to emphasize the truth that if we will only
yield ourselves to the divine plan, He is right there to bring forth the
mystery of truth.
