My doctor has just told me that I have breast cancer. I want to believe
God for healing, but I don?t know how. I?m scared. Help!
"God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of
love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7
If God hasn?t given it to you, you don?t want it! Be strong. His
grace is sufficient. His Word promises that "He Himself took our
infirmities and bore our sicknesses." Matthew 8:17 So, if He took
your infirmity and bore your sickness, why should you take it back?
Several years ago the devil tried to tempt me into receiving breast
cancer. I had just begun studying about God?s divine healing power in
bible school. Fortunately, I had learned just enough to recognize that
this was a lie from the devil, and that I could stand against it and
refuse it if I chose to.
God so awesomely showed me this analogy: The Fed Ex man comes to your
door with a package for you. He holds out the clipboard for you to sign
your name, acknowledging that you have received the package. If you sign
it, he then gives you the package. BUT, if you don?t sign it?he is not
legally allowed to give you the package.
Here?s your word for the day: DON?T SIGN FOR IT!
I saw right away that this was a test, and I was determined to pass it.
"God", I said, "show me what to do now, so that you will
receive glory from this situation." The Lord then began to give me
His plan for the situation. "Go to the doctors and have this
documented." He said. So I did. The doctors (two of them) labeled it
Throughout the following two weeks, God instructed me to keep silent
about the situation and to tell no one. I did as He instructed, and
continued to speak His Word over the situation. "By His stripes, I am
healed". "He Himself took (my) infirmities and bore (my)
sickness", "No weapon formed against me will prosper".
God was building my faith during this time, to the point where I was
actually ENJOYING being a part of this battle. Why not? I already knew
what the outcome would be! I would be healed and the devil would lose
AGAIN! I CONTINUED TO REJOICE AND PRAISE GOD for His power over the
darkness. My faith was being increased daily.
The following week, God instructed me to let my pastor know about this
situation and to ask him to lay hands on me and pray for me. I did as He
instructed and so did my pastor. THREE DAYS LATER there was no sign of the
lump and I was completely healed?never to return.
