Short Story by Smith Wigglesworth
In Switzerland in a house meeting Smith and his
friends prayed for people and had seen their healings
manifested. After they left the house someone told him
a blind man was there and heard everything that was
said, but he was not prayed for. The man said he
would not leave the house until he was prayed for. He was born blind. Smith thought that was unique and he
turned around and went back to the house.
Smith anointed him, then laid hands on his eyes,
prayed for him, and immediately God gave this man his
The man counted all the lights in the room, then
took his watch out of his pocket that had raised hands
on it so he could tell the time. Now he only had to look
at it. The ecstatic pleasure that man experienced
because he had received his eyesight!
Smith and the others with joy, wept and danced
and shouted. Then the man realized he had never seen
his mother or father. He ran out of the house to go
home. That night the man was the first one back to the
house meeting. Everyone knew him as the “blind
man.” He shared his story of his sight.
Beloved, I wonder how much you want to take
away today. You could not carry it if it were an actual
substance. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE
GRACE AND THE POWER AND THE BLESSINGS OF GOD
THAT CAN CARRIED, NO MATTER HOW BIG THEY ARE!
OH, WHAT A SAVIOR! What a place we are in by grace,
that He may come in and commune with us.
HE is willing to say to every heart, “peace be still”
(Mark 4:39), and to every weak body, “be strong.”
Are you going halfway, or are you going right
to the end? Do not be deceived today by Satan,
but BELIEVE GOD.
