Jesus Healed Me From Cancer

Tuesday, March 3, 2020 / TBN Staff

Dodie Osteen shares about her liver cancer diagnosis nearly 40 years ago.

 
After she was diagnosed, she and her husband John went home and prayed. Both were bold in their prayers and petitions to Jesus. They rebuked the devil and the demonic forces of cancer. John and Dodie were shepherding Lakewood Church and they realized that the cancer was an attack against their ministry. The Osteens put their faith in God and He delivered them from their difficult season.
 
We’re not out of commission until God says we are! Many times, illnesses and even death are a direct attack on the church. They stall us from being on our A-game. But even then, God can use us despite our weaknesses because His power is perfected in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). 
 
God used Dodie and brought her through her difficult season of physical weakness. He healed her from her cancer. As He worked through the Osteens' lives, He built their ministry in mighty ways. Today, Lakewood Church, which John and Dodie founded, is one of the largest and most influential churches in the world!
 
It’s important to note that not every prayer for physical healing will be answered by God as a yes. Sometimes He will answer them as a no to which we as believers say, “Amen.” Saying “amen” doesn’t take away from God’s love for you one bit. It may mean that there is more to be done for the Kingdom through your illness than through your healing.
