His son lay dead in the hospital morgue. But Bible teacher Andrew Wommack and his wife had something he says made all the difference: confidence in God.
"I've got a confidence in the Lord that is way beyond me and my performance," Andrew Womack of Andrew Wommack Ministries tells Dr. Steve Greene on a popular episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network.
That confidence, Wommack says, must be tied to a firm foundation of faith: "Without faith, it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Heb. 11:6).
"My son died in 2001, on March 4, and he was dead for between four and five hours," Wommack says. "And he was in a hospital; they had stripped him naked, put a toe tag on him, put him in the morgue on a slab. And then they called me to tell me what happened."
"And my wife and I just spoke our faith and agreed," he says. "And we had such confidence that my son, who had been dead for over four hours, just sat up and started talking, and has no brain damage today.
"I believe that that is a part of confidence," Wommack says. "There are a lot of people who believe God can do those things. But they just kind of ask, 'God, will You do this?' And then they wait to see how things work out to discern whether God's going to answer or not.
"But I knew that God was answering that prayer," Wommack says. "And that's confidence. And so this has literally transformed my life and the lives of many, many other people."
