The following excerpt is taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Jennie Lake’s Healing

Two years after John G. Lake married, his wife, Jennie, was diagnosed with tuberculosis and heart disease. She was given increasingly stronger doses of medication but her condition continued to worsen and in 1898, the doctors told him there was nothing more that could be done for her.

When Jeannie’s final hours seemed to be approaching, a fellow minister encouraged Lake to resolve himself to God’s will and to accept Jennie’s death. In utter hopelessness, Lake threw his Bible against the fireplace mantle and it fell to the floor and opened to Acts chapter 10. As he walked over to pick it up, his eyes drifted to verse 38: “…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power; who went about doing good, and healing all that were pressed by the devil; for God was with him.”

Those powerful words ripped through his thoughts, “oppressed by the devil!” That meant that God was not the author of Jennie’s sickness, or any sickness. And if Lake was a son of God through Jesus Christ, then God was with him, just as He was with Jesus. Now he was convinced it was the devil that had caused Jennie’s illness. It was the devil who was trying to steal the mother of his children. It was the devil who was trying to destroy his life.

Then Lake turned to Luke 13:16 and read: “So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” Lake realized that not only was Satan the author of sickness and death, but that Jesus Christ—through him—could bring healing and deliverance to the afflicted! Through using him, Jesus Christ could conquer the throes of death! There was no doubt in his mind that Jesus died for the healing of his wife, just as He died for her sins. And he determined that absolutely nothing would rob Jennie of that gift.

In boldness that only the Holy Spirit could have produced, Lake decided to let God, not Satan, have the last say. He marched into the bedroom and declared to the seen and unseen that his wife would be healed at exactly 9:30 a.m.! When 9:30 arrived, Lake knelt at his wife’s side and called on the living God. When he did, the power of God came upon Jennie and permeated her body from head to foot and she was instantly healed. Soon the story of Jennie’s healing became national news inspiring many to travel great distances to visit the Lake’s home.
