So when I had settled my heart to trust God, and not be in fear over the discouraging news of the lumps in my breast, I went before God, and asked Him what I should do.
I do believe that God heals people supernaturally today. I do not know why everyone does not get healed. But I have seen it happen so many times before with my own eyes, and in my own body and family as well, that it would be foolish of me not to believe it. I did ask God to just supernaturally heal me, and I continue to believe in and for His healing.
However, when I went before God, I had also in mind to ask Him for a course of action, believing there was something I could do to reverse this disease state in my body. My mother died of cancer. She had the best doctors in the country treating her for her type of cancer (which was a rare form). She had several stays at the Mayo Clinic for tests and treatments. One of her doctors told me once, that the medical community does not yet understand cancer so as to be able to cure it. But I do know Someone who does understand it and who is able to cure it, and who knows my particular case inside and out. 🙂
I did not tell my husband or anyone else at first. I did not google cancer cures or research books. I determined to hear the Lord for my specific situation, and not involve myself with other people’s unbelief.
This is the benefit of training ourselves now in waiting before the Lord in silence, daily and consistently; of learning His word backward and forward, and of asking for help, practice, and confirmation in listening. I do believe the Lord will speak to each one of us for our individual lives.
God will speak
the importance of the plumb line
learning to listen
journaling with God: tuning in our ears to hear
If the habit and practice of listening to the Lord God is built into our relationship with God in a time of peace, we will have the comfort and ability of hearing His voice when we really need to hear it, in a time of trial or desperation.
