Healed of Cancer Paperback – December 1, 1986
A Miraculous Story of Healing From A Cancer Death Sentence
by Dodie Osteen (Author)
Quoted: “Today, She Is Healthy
“She has 5 children and 19 grandchildren, but in 1981, Dodie Osteen was diagnosed with metastatic cancer of the liver. She was told that with or without chemotherapy, she had weeks to live. All her life she had been the picture of health. In fact, she recounts that when someone would ask how she was, she would say “I am disgustingly healthy.” She does not say that anymore. Not because she is not healthy, but because she knows the power of our words and will never take her health for granted again.
“With no hope…
“from the medical community, her husband told the doctor that they believed in miracles and in the miracle worker (That would be Jesus) and they were going home to pray and seek God for what to do.
“She is the first to say, “do not necessarily do what she did.” You must seek God and do what brings peace to you. Peace is the barometer for what you need to do in any situation.
“So she began to live as if she were not sick.
“She felt so awful, that she knew if she stayed in bed it would only get worse. She forced herself to continue to operate as best she could. Not taking naps. Sleeping the normal number of hours at night. And she prayed fervently.
“A longer story short – she never died.
“In fact, she got healthier. Did she go back for tests to confirm her health? No. She knew she was healthy. She didn’t want hospital tests messing with her faith. Finally a few years later, she was impressed to see a doctor about another issue and they reported she was as healthy as a young woman. Her doctors, well known in medicine, say she was healed supernaturally and that is the only explanation.
“Later she says this:
God Did Not Give Me Cancer
Did God send this sickness on me?
No, of course not. Both my heart and my mind knew it was not God’s will for me or any of His children to be sick. If I had any doubt in my mind about it being God’s will for me to be well, I would never have gotten well. That is why we need to fight the lies of the devil. That is why we need to teach people God’s Word. Get it clearly established in your mind and heart that it IS God’s will for you to be well.
God did not put cancer on me. Jesus said it was “the thief,” Satan, who came to steal my health, kill me, and destroy me. Jesus said, I am come that [you] might have life, and that [you] might have it more abundantly (John 10:10, KJV). Notice, that verse says that you “might” have life. You have a choice. You do not have to have abundant life, but you CAN if you want to. I wanted to, so I pled my case with God.”
“God has given Dodie Osteen a mighty ministry of love and compassion. In every service, people are blessed, lifted and moved and she lovingly and courageously prays for the sick, casts out demons, and ministers with tears of compassion to hurting people. Many testify of healing and deliverance as a result of her anointed ministry.”
The scriptures are mentioned in her wonderful book about her healing – Healed of Cancer, by Dodie Osteen.
