MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall
not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
THE TWO CONFESSIONS
[part 1 of 11]
*____After having prayed for one the other morning, she was satisfied that she was perfectly healed, but now the symptoms have returned and her heart is disturbed. She wonders where the difficulty lies."
____I asked this party, "Did you tell your husband when you met him at night that you were healed?"
____"No, you see I wasn't sure
yet. I didn't want to say anything until I was positive."
____"But you had no pain? Was there any soreness?" I asked.
____"Oh, that all left; but you see I have to be careful. My husband is skeptical and I didn't want to tell him I was healed until I was sure."
____I can see where her difficulty lay. She did not believe the Word. Had she made her confession to her husband, the thing would never have come back. But she played into the hands of the Enemy, and he restored the same symptoms that she had had, and
brought back the pain and soreness. This happened because she invited him to do it.
____Had she dared to stand her ground on the Word, and hold fast to her confession
that she was healed, he [the Enemy] would have no ground of approach.
