They took him back to the doctor at the regular time and the doctor made x-rays and came out looking very pale. He said, “Mr. Lacy, would you bring this boy back again in the next day or two.” When he brought him back there were nine doctors there. They x-rayed and checked him and took the cast off and finally they came out and said, “Mr. Lacy, we do not know what has happened, but your son has a brand new hip bone.”

Beloved I wish above all things that they mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (111 John: 2).
God has all the power now He ever has had. We need not wait for a time when He has more. God has always been a “now” God. We need to forget the past and every failure. This is a new day; the Lord is here and we can touch Him. We need to believe God is right here with all the power He ever had and He wants to give it to His people.
Just as it is not the will of God for us to have sin in our life, it is not the will of God for us to have sickness in our life. He wants all of his children well.
Pray this prayer recorded in Acts 4:29-31: “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, by stretching forth your hand to heal; and signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy Holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness.”
“Oh Lord, this is our prayer, heal the sick, set the captives free. We are looking at your stripes, Lord, that were put there for us. We want to thank you now that you are going to heal us. Amen.”
When the devil comes in and tries to talk to me, I tell him to shut up; I will do the talking. “You are nothing but a liar. You have never told the truth. I have no time for you, but if you will just sit here a minute I want to talk to you. There is a great big burning lake of fire and there is an angel up there polishing the chain to wrap around your neck.” He heads out the door. I call, “Wait a minute, I am not through with my sermon. I want to tell you where you are going.” He comes trotting’ in and I say, “Devil did you know your time is short. You haven’t much longer; you will be down there in those coals.”
That is the way I talk to him; he doesn’t mess around. If you let him do all the talking, he will have you running and will scare the living daylights out of you. It is time for us to scare the living daylights out of him in the name of Jesus.
The name of Jesus is above every name; every devil in hell is going to bow to it. The Name of Jesus is greater than any disease.
In one service someone brought a little four-year-old girl who was born cripple; she could not use her legs and arms. She could not hold her head up. Slobber ran out of her mouth. She was limber as a dishrag. The doctors said, “No hope, she will never get any better, only worse.” I prayed, “Oh, Jesus, there is power in Your name.” I took that little thing in my arms and squeezed her and said, “In the Name of Jesus Christ,” and the power of God shot through that child like lightning; her legs shot out, her arms shot out, her head came up. She was running and playing in the church the next night. Nothing is too hard for Jesus. We are the ones who block our healing. We can have faith for a miracle or faith against it.
