Healed from Cancer - 1.1.22

Hi Pastor, I’d like to start by saying, you and Sister Elaine are a blessing to me and my family. I thank the Lord on how He uses your personality in delivering the Word to us. You are both wonderful examples of a Godly relationship. I’m just giving honor where honor is due. Thank you for being obedient to the call. The Word you preach has brought answers and deliverance to me in many different ways. But that’s a testimony for another season. Well, my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer about 3 years ago. We began to speak the Word every day. We thought all was well. He had no symptoms of any kind. Then one day his back started hurting. He is a truck driver, so we thought it was because of the job. The pain continued and became worse. Inside I thought cancer. I didn’t speak it, just rebuked it, and plead the blood of Jesus and encouraged my husband in the Word. He came to church in spite of the pain. The next day he couldn’t do his job, so they sent him to their clinic. I kept praying as he went in to be examined. He came out about an hour later with these words. “They said it had spread to the bone and that was the pain he was feeling.” At that moment, every horror story I had ever heard came rushing to my mind. I lost it in tears. I knew in my heart that God is almighty, and all things are possible with Him. This was hard and the devil was talking and sending pictures to my mind. I called my daughter because I needed words of encouragement. I knew I couldn’t stay in this place. It wouldn’t win the battle. I began to speak the Word to pull my soul out. I fought against my feelings, through tears and groaning. The more I spoke, the stronger and calmer I became till I came to a place of standing strong in the Lord and confronting the enemy with the Word. We decided not to tell family or friends. We didn’t want any doubt or unbelief and negative speaking. We decided not to speak the “C” word. Only once to declare victory over it at night when we spoke the Word together before bedtime. I did have one friend who is faithful to God and me to praise and speak the Word. My husband had one also. We felt so alone. We live in Slidell and have no friends or family here. I thank God we have our church family at WhiteDove. While at home, I immediately wrote down every scripture about healing to confess. Total dependency on God and His Word. Radiation was never our choice. We’ve seen conventional doctors and they spoke words of death. They were hunting us down through letters, texts, and phone calls. We just said it is a demonic script and we don’t receive it in Jesus’ name. In the material things seemed to be getting worse. My husband began to use a walker and a urinal next to his recliner. I was not excepting that. So I started speaking Isaiah 40:31 my husband will be hopping, skipping, and leaping, giving glory to God. He will rise and walk. In Jesus name. We started researching holistic doctors and found one that we believe the Lord was leading us to in Florida. (I believe this was how God got my husband what he needed). The Saturday before we left, there was a rainbow perfectly placed over our neighbor’s home, right in front of my home. It was strangely placed from end to end across the house. I knew it was God saying He was faithful to His promises. I just stood in awe and savored the moment. It didn’t fade away until I went in. We finally left August 29, 2021, a Sunday night. What was so wonderful was, 3 Sundays before we left, the Lord prepared us with the Word of healing. We were amazed. It was one of those Sundays even the offering exhortation was about healing. Me and my family sat in our seats and laughed because we saw God change the offering message and we knew it was for us. WOW! God confirmed He’s with us. At the end of the service, you spoke a word while we were standing to worship. I supernaturally wrote it down. It had to be to get all of this. I didn’t know why at the time. I just felt I needed to. The perfect Word overcomes the limitations of the natural. Keep speaking it so your heart won’t engage in natural circumstances. Come into agreement with the promises of God in defiance of natural circumstances. Out of the abundance of it, it will happen. Job 22:28 calling those things as though they were. Your words will direct your soul. You can live in the Spirit above your soul. You can live in the Spirit, not in the soul. Live in in heavenly places. You speak the Word, and He is able to give you a harvest. Circumstances will always contradict what you’re saying. It’s a war between your spirit and mind. Pull down strongholds. Trust God. We’ve got to get to where natural circumstances don’t bother us. The devil will challenge you on just how much you trust Jesus.

 

We were in Florida for two months and this word carried us every day. We actually were in Faith. We didn’t know how we were going to pay for things. We just knew we had to, and we expected God to provide and He did. Also knowing that we had the backing of our church encouraged us. The Sunday I came to the alter for prayer for my husband comforted me and my family and strengthened us as well. We stood on James 5:14-15 also. My husband’s treatments were $4,500 a week for 8 weeks, plus gas, food, and lodging. It all came through. My kids had savings and money that came in from unexpected places. We knew God was sending the money. When we arrived in Florida we felt so alone. We had no friends, family, or church, but the Lord showed me being alone was exactly where we needed to be. It allowed us to press into God and depend on Him more. We had to depend on God for every little thing. We had to hold on to God’s Word every minute of the day no matter how we felt or what it looked like. We had to constantly cast down thought, imagination, and fear all day, every day, throughout the day. The Word never left our lips - me, my husband, and daughter. There were times we praised and laughed when everything within our flesh was saying no. We had to look at God’s Word when doubt knocked on the door. And when we felt alone and needed the Body of Christ, we listened to the Word online to be encouraged, strengthened, and edified. We were desperate for God. I’ve been walking with the Lord for about 35 years. I’ve believed God for many things and saw them come to pass, I’ve seen man miracles and I thought I knew a lot, but I realized during this trial, I knew nothing. Nothing you can gain in this world is important. Nothing matters, but a relationship with Jesus, and a Christ like relationship with others. Everything we are and all we have is in Him. In Him we live and move and have our being. Every breath is in Him. Total dependency on Him. In this war were many battles. My husbands’ treatments were Monday through Friday but there was a trial every weekend. Right when we’d get over one, here came another. We had come to the point where we didn’t even put up a natural fight. We just held up our shield of faith and walked on realizing we have no strength but in God only. In the midst of all of this, God opened doors of ministry unto us. We prayed with a mechanic who had a brain tumor and my husband had everyone saying they’re getting better every day because that’s what he would say and encourage them to say it. We prayed with and encouraged the believers. God even surrounded us with strangers who were believers who helped us when our car broke down. Some agreed with us in prayer. We were sitting on the beach and a missions team walked up and asked to pray with us. God was taking care of us. Praise the Lord. Also, our car was in the shop for 3 weeks. We didn’t know how we were going to pay for it and out of nowhere, $1,500 was given to us. Enough to pay for the repairs and rental. During that time God sent another rainbow that hovered over the house across the street of the neighbor’s home just like He died when I was at home. The Lord provides. This reminded me of the Blood Covenant that we have in Him. We were in Florida for two months. At the end of our stay, the doctor did more tests, and the cancer is gone. Thank you, Jesus! Praise God! Praise God! As soon as we got home, in Slidell, the devil said it didn’t’ work and the Lord said to me Proverbs 2:8 the Lord preserves the way of the righteous. Know He maintains our victory. We are secure. He also gave me Psalms 121. We ask that you continue to agree in prayer with us for restoration in our finances and strength and peace in my husband muscles, a quick recovery and supernatural weight gain, no more weight loss. We really appreciate you, Sister Elaine, and Staff.

 

 

P.S. towards the end of our stay, we had enough money to get home. We needed food, the refrigerator wasn’t getting cold, and they had to replace it. They sent us $100 gift card to the supermarket for our inconvenience. That covered the food we needed. God is good.
