Smith Wigglesworth was a great man of God and a man of tremendous faith. He had a relationship with God that was non-stop. He said that he seldom prayed for more than 30 minutes but he never let 30 minutes go by without praying. He was filled with the Word of God and was always ready to minister. Some thought of him as being harsh in his ministry. It’s been recalled that in a healing line he once punched a man in the stomach. He went on to say that he wasn’t punching the man, but punching the devil who is behind all sickness and disease. The man was healed. You’d better know that you are hearing from God in a circumstance like that. And Smith did hear from God. Jesus Himself said that His words were not His own but the Father’s. People probably get pretty tired of hearing how important God’s Word is. But there is just no getting around it. God’s Word is our final authority. If God said it, then that settles it. That’s the way Smith Wigglesworth lived. And of course, Jesus too, seeing that He is God’s Word made flesh. If you struggle in life, in any area at all, God’s Word holds your answer. It will make you free!
28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I AM he. I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me. John 8:28 (NLT)
19 So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. John 5:19 (NLT)
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 (NIV)
30 As He spoke these words, many believed in Him. 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:30-32 (NKJV)
