I recently watched a friend, a beautiful 47 year old lady who LOVED her husband and son, lose her battle with cancer.
In the last couple of months of her life, we tried to meet frequently for prayer and encouragement. This sweet lady FOUGHT! She went to healing services and tried everything she could think of in the natural realm.
She and I were acquaintances for years because our children attended the same daycare when they were itty bitties. As the years passed, God continually had our paths cross. I should have known that He was up to something. Thanks to social media, she and I stayed connected and she reached out to me when she needed prayer.
I guess I was one of her connections to the truth that we are SPIRIT — not just flesh. My mind naturally wonders in the supernatural realm and she knew it. I believe God’s Word more than I believe what I see with my own eyes. She needed to feel this truth in her heart and that is why she reached out to me. When we prayed together, we felt supernatural things manifest in the natural. We KNEW what and who was behind the cancer, but yet — it didn’t leave. I was perplexed and a bit angry with God when I saw her just hours before she crossed into heaven. It took a couple of weeks for me to work through all of my pain with the Lord. Her sweet baby boy who was days away from his 12th birthday was so brave as he watched me say goodbye to his mom. She couldn’t communicate, but I knew she could hear me.
I knew where she was going, but I wept for her family, I wept for her friends, I wept for her loss because SHE WANTED TO RAISE HER SON. I wept bitter tears of anger because I had done everything I could do.
I knew satan wanted nothing more than to shake my belief since my heart’s desire is to see the sick healed in the Name of Jesus. I knew satan wanted me to give up and never believe for healing again.
Yes, it took me weeks to work through the pain and anger with the Lord. He is my Daddy God and He knew my struggles. If nothing else, I knew my friend was ready to cross over through that very thin veil into heaven. She had forgiven offenses and had received the truth that the CANCER WAS NOT FROM GOD! He loves His kids and DOES NOT GIVE SICKNESS. In the end, she KNEW the cancer was not from Him.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I saw my parents die of cancer and now three friends. However, I KNOW THAT I KNOW that the day is coming when I am going to lay hands and see CANCER FLEE just as easily as I see headaches, backaches, and other sicknesses heal and flee!
God is NOT a man that He would lie to me.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
No matter what we see in the natural, continue to do as Jesus instructed. The truth will manifest.
My sweet sister is now with Jesus and her family is now learning how to cope through the grief and loss.
Please pray they will feel God’s love surrounding them.
