Romans 10:17 "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
A denominational pastor visited the home of a woman with terminal cancer to pray with her and read the Word to her. As this woman was bedfast, he would also bring her a different cassette tape every day to listen to.
He said, "I really didn't know or understand the leading of the Lord at the time. But something on the inside kept saying, 'So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing,' and it stopped right there [Rom. 10:17]."
That went on over and over inside of him for three days, and on the third day, he finally decided that God was trying to get something across to him. He decided that God was trying to tell him that this woman needed to hear one tape over and over again, instead of him changing the tape each day.
When he asked the Lord which tape he should play over and over, he felt impressed in his spirit to play Kenneth Hagin's tape, "God's Medicine." So he took the tape to her, and told her that he was not going to bring any more tapes because he wanted her to listen to this one tape over and over again.
In the process of time, the woman was completely healed of terminal cancer. As she listened over and over again to the tape, 'God's Medicine,' it built faith in her heart. And she was completely healed.
If you need something from God, invest in a CD by Brother Hagin or someone that speaks on faith and listen to it over and over. Build your faith up, renew your mind. And watch the word come to pass in your life.
Confession: I am a doer of the Word. Faith is built in my heart by hearing and hearing and hearing the Word of God. Therefore, I hear the Word of God and then I act on the Word.
