Faith Food Devotional
AnyMay 12, 2021
"Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him" (James 5:14-15).
Is any sick among you? Among whom? The Church!
Then it must be God's will to heal "any" of the sick in the Church!
And it can't be God's will for "any" in the Church to be sick!
"But, Brother Hagin, you've forgotten," one person said.
"The Bible says that if we suffer with Him, we'll reign with Him."
"No, I haven't forgotten," I explained. "Let's read it again...if we suffer with Him" (Rom. 8:17). Suffer what? Pneumonia? Cancer? Tuberculosis? No! Jesus didn't suffer from any of these things.
What did Jesus suffer? Persecution. And you will, too, if you live right. Especially if you preach divine healing, the gifts of the Spirit, and faith. I've suffered persecution for more than sixty-five years, but I haven't suffered sickness and disease.
Confession: It is God's will for the Church, His Body, to walk in divine health. It is God's will for me to be well!
