God's Will To Heal - page 249

Chapter 24: He Has Promised Us Long Life
God’s will is long life, not short life. Are you excited about that? You might ask, “Why do you
keep talking about whether I’m excited or not? What does it matter?” Oh, it matters.
When I was a first-year RHEMA student, I always sat on the front row at Healing School. A
friend and I were there every day at Healing School, and we had gone to a Mexican restaurant
for lunch and had ordered “the special,” a big one. It was in the wintertime, so it was cold
outside, and when we came in, it was warm, and we were full of Mexican food. And Brother
Hagin was teaching that day.
He wasn’t preaching, and there was no fast organ music. He was teaching line upon line, and the
next thing I knew, my eyes were about half-mast. Now, I’m sure you’ve never done anything
like this before. But he was on the platform, at least the last time I noticed him.
The next thing I knew, he was right in front of me, close to me, and he shouted, “Get excited
boys!” Oh, man, we jumped! “Get excited boys!” He said, “It’s when you get excited about the
Word of God that it works for you.”
And you know, it’s true. If you’re really believing it, you get excited every time. If you can hear
it and just say, “Ho hum, yeah, I’ve heard all that,” then you’re not believing; it’s just mental
assent. It’s not real to you. That is why I keep repeating it, and I believe that as we get into this
Word, you’re going to get excited about what God has given to us in this area, and that you have
a right to a long, happy, satisfying, fruitful, victorious life in the Lord.
Psalm 91:16 says, “With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation,” with long life.
Young’s Literal Translation says, “With length of days I satisfy him, And I cause him to look on
My salvation.”
The Easy to Read Version says, “I will give My followers a long life and show them My power
to save.” I like that, don’t you?
The New Century Version says, “I’ll give them a long full life, and they’ll see how I can save.”
God’s Word Translation says, “I will satisfy you with a long life. I will show you how I will save
The Contemporary English Version says, “You will live a long life and see My saving power.”
Say this out loud:
“I will live long, and I will see how He can save.”
We are sure it is God’s will for all to be healed today because He has promised us long life.
