Praying to the Father, Jesus said, “.. .thy word is truth.” There are two kinds of truth: truth based on what God’s Word says and sense-knowledge truth based on what our physical senses tell us. It is all right to walk by sense-knowledge truth as long as it does not contradict Bible truth. But living in the natural as we do, we get so accustomed to believing what the outward man tells us that it is difficult to switch over and walk by the truth given in God’s Word.
Years ago I prayed for an elderly man who had suffered from rheumatism for many years. After I laid hands on him and prayed, the Lord healed him. About eight months later, as I was walking to town, I happened to see him as he was staking his cow out on a vacant lot.
