Listen to Your Spirit

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
A young admiral who was dying of liver cancer said to the Lord, “I know the doctor said that ninety percent of my liver is already eaten up with cancer and that I’m operating on ten percent of it. I know the doctor said that I’ll be dead in ten days. I’m not afraid to die now.
“But I just can’t believe that it is Your will for me to die at my age and leave my wife and two children. I can’t believe that. I know that You can do anything. I know that if I had a headache, You could heal a headache.
“I’m sure You have that much power. But it would be just as easy for You to heal cancer of the liver as it would be to heal a headache. I’m going to ask You to heal me, and believe that You’ll do it.”
Scriptures began to come back to him that he learned as a child in Sunday school. He began to quote them.
The next day, his wife came in and broke down in tears. She thought she was about to lose a husband.
He said to her, “Honey, don’t cry. I’ve been away from the Lord, but I’ve come back to Him. And I want you to know that I’m not going to die.”
She said, “Yes, but the doctor said you’re going to die.”
“I don’t care what the doctor said,” he replied.
Think about this. He had no teaching about faith and healing. But just by following his spirit, he knew that God would heal him.
He was so much improved the third day that the doctors ran some special tests and said, “We don’t understand it. Instead of your liver operating at ten percent, it’s operating at fifty percent.” A few days later, his liver was operating at one hundred percent.
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. The Greater One is in me. He is greater than sickness and disease. He is greater than pain. He is greater than distress. He is greater than the enemy. He is greater than any test, trial, or anything I face!
