So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
(Rom. 10:17)
A denominational pastor I knew daily visited the home of a woman with terminal cancer to pray with her and read the Word to her. As this woman was bedfast, he would also bring her a different cassette tape every day to listen to.

He said to me, "I really didn't know or understand the leading of the Lord at the time. But something on the inside kept saying, 'So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing,' and it stopped right there [Rom. 10:17].

"That went on over and over inside of me for three days, and on the third day, I finally decided that God was trying to get something across to me. I decided that God was trying to tell me that this woman needed to hear one tape over and over again, instead of me changing the tape each day."

When he asked the Lord which tape he should play over and over, he felt impressed in his spirit to play my tape, "God's Medicine." So he took the tape to her, and told her that he was not going to bring any more tapes because he wanted her to listen to this one tape over and over again.

In the process of time, the woman was completely healed of terminal cancer. I saw her some time ago, and she said to me, "Brother Hagin, you know I was on my deathbed, and the doctors said that they had done all they could do. But as I listened over and over again to your tape, 'God's Medicine,' it built faith in my heart. And I was completely healed."

I am a doer of the Word. Faith is built in my heart by hearing and hearing and hearing the Word of God. Therefore, I hear the Word of God and then I act on the Word.
