1 Peter 2:24
HEALED OF CANCER
Healed of Cancer
Malignancy the sentence of death.
The doctor said, “Pastor, your wife has metastatic cancer of the liver. With or without chemotherapy, she has only a few weeks to live. We can treat her, but it will only slightly prolong her life. We cannot find the primary tumor,” he said. “We don’t know where it is. In fact, it has us really baffled. Usually a primary tumor signifies the beginning of cancer and then it spreads to the liver or kidneys or someplace else. But we cannot find one.”
MY faith had to take over now.While I was in the hospital, I was so weak, and my senses were so dulled by medication, that I depended heavily on other peoples prayers and faith.
Most of all I depended on my husband. I was married 44 years to a great teacher of the word of God, and he constantly encouraged me and spoke the word to me. I also relied on the people of Lakewood church who were also praying in fasting for me. Other peoples prayers had to carry me during this time.
After I came home I realized that FAITH for my healing was a personal matter between me and Jesus.
One night, in the early hours of the morning, God spoke to my heart: “It is not your husband‘s faith; it’s not oral Roberts faith; it is not Kenneth Hagin‘s faith; it is your faith that you must go on now“ I knew it was between me and Jesus from that time on.

This particular section deals with the subject of fear. Many times in seeking healing, we need to deal more with fear than even the disease. Once you get through fear it’s easy Peezy.
How I fought fear.
People off and asked me if I struggled with fear. Oh, how I battled with fear! When I was strong in my body, I never felt fear, but when I was weak and sick, fear would overwhelm me.
I want to be honest with you. I am the wife of a pastor and Faith teacher, but first of all, I am a human being. I have thoughts and feelings, just like anyone else. I had to cast down imaginations. I laughed at symptoms.
I am a registered nurse. I understand how my body was supposed to function, and I understood that I wasn’t functioning properly. Certain things the doctors doctors had said now brought fear to my heart. I had to fight against those thoughts, and I still have to resist them sometimes. Satan would torment me with the Doctors, “you only have a few weeks to live… Few weeks to live… Few weeks to live…!“ the devil would use pain, and then say, “You’re going to die. Have your family bury you in that pretty dress. You look good in it.”
But I would replace those thoughts with God‘s word, and say, “with long life, will he satisfy me, and show me his salvation“ (see Psalm 91:16)
The Devil bombarded my mind with every kind of fear imaginable, especially when everyone was asleep, and I lay awake hurting. Pain – intense, unbearable, pain – came against my body, most of it demonic just to try my faith. I thought so hard in the middle of the night! This is when the devils thought would play on my mind. Many nights I would lay awake, and pray, continually and rebuke the spirit of fear. I felt like I had a battle fatigue, but I kept on pushing and fighting.
In order to keep my mind from drifting to the negative, I would walk around, saying, with every step, “by the stripes of Jesus, I Am Healed… By the stripes of Jesus, I am healed“ (see 1 Peter 2:24)I would meditate on scriptures like, it is God, who works in me both to willing to do for his good pleasure (Philippians 2:13).
The Word of God would always encourage me and make me feel better, but the devil
challenged me every step of faith I took. Each time I quoted scripture, he would say, “it hasn’t done you one bit of good to confess the word of God has it?“ He would question every promise of God.
I quoted scripture after scripture. Daily, as I use God‘s word, I became stronger and stronger.
Is tormenting fear normal for a Christian?
I was once asked, “Is fear and what you’re going through a normal thing for a spiritual Christian?”
I do not know what you consider normal. I’m just telling you what I went through. Don’t be critical of people unless you walk in their shoes. If you don’t think they have as much faith as you do, don’t be critical of them. Try to realize what they’re going through. No matter how much you know, you still do not know all they are facing. I have been critical of others in the past. I am ashamed, because now I know what I went through.
Don’t sit around and feel sorry for yourself when you are fighting the battle for your healing. Pity never wins! I overcame my pity parties by speaking to my body, and commanding it to come in line, with the word of God. And it did!
Two years later, we went to see Dr. Cherry!!
The test results confirmed that God had performed a miracle! The blood work was normal. And seven liver function test were completely normal. No cancer! Glory to God!
* Please note that we have heard that Reverend Dodie still gets up at 4 AM and confesses her scriptures! We also heard that she’s so vibrant. She actually signs a card for everyone that sends an offering into the ministry. Truly, they just live by Faith. She’s living by Faith and you can too!
