Believed It And I Received it by Richard Roberts

Praise the Lord. Cheryl, do you have a testimony? A great one. This lady called for prayer because she had a tumor on her body. And the prayer partner prayed with her. The tumor was gone. And she went to the doctor and the doctor verified that the tumor is gone. She called back to say, “Hey, it’s gone and the doctor said it’s gone.” (Applause)¬†That’s faith talk. How do you feel about that, Lindsay?

You know, it’s usually the very time you get something wrong with you, suddenly your fear begins to talk. The devil attacks your mind and the first thing that comes into your mind is, you’re never going to get well. This is the worst thing that could happen to you. You’re going to be sick. You’re this, you’re that. The first thing that we’ve got to learn to do when something comes against us is stop looking at the circumstance and let our faith talk.

I had that when the doctors told me I’d never walk again. I was laying in the hospital. My left leg was completely crushed. There wasn’t anything left in my left leg. And yet I kept thinking to myself, OK, do I accept this? I didn’t have any teaching either. No one taught me that I could believe. No one taught me that I could confess. But I said to my father, I first of all found out what God was like and I found out He wanted me whole. And then when I found out He wanted me whole, I said, “OK, I’m not going to look at the leg.

I’m not going to look at the circumstances. I look to God.” And even my Sunday school teachers and the nurses and the doctors and everybody would come in and say, “Honey, you’ve got to accept that you’re going to be a cripple the rest of your life.” And I would say, “No, because my God is like my father. The Word says my God is like my¬†earthly father.” And I watched my earthly father and he wanted me whole. And so I thought, all right, if he wants me whole, then God wants me whole. I was a little girl but I believed it and I received it.
