Many Christians put God in a tiny box and limit his power to what they can see and understand. But how many people love to say God is a healer but when we are in the situation think the worst. My dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer, and in the midst of it all me and my family feel complete peace safe in the knowledge that he will be healed totally and completely. Why do I believe that? why am I so certain? I can answer that, the reason is I know that my god is a miracle worker, way maker, and a healer. In my eyes I visualise it, manifest it and I know he is healed, he will be a living testimony of what putting your trust in Jesus Christ can do. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever more. He is the God that knows our bodies, he made man out of the dust of the earth and breathed life into him. He parted the red sea so that the children of Israel could escape pharaoh, he blessed Sarah with a child in her old age, he raised the dead, healed the blind, fed the 5000 all by faith. There is nothing, I repeat there is nothing too hard for Jesus. Cancer will shrivel up and die in the name of Jesus. Total healing will overtake his body. I speak life over him health and strength in the name of Jesus. Satan meant it for evil but my god meant it for good just sit back and witness the power of the true and the living God.
From the moment he became ill God was in the picture he went before us, let me share this journey of how amazing and faithful my God Jesus Christ is. So, when my dad became clearly unwell we went to the NHS A&E at Kings College Hospital 2 times, and on each occasion, he was misdiagnosed and sent home even though he was fully displaying the signs of someone suffering from cancer some of his symptoms were vomiting, unable to pass stools or gas, rapid weight loss (lost 1 stone in less than 2 weeks), loss of appetite, fatigue and bloated stomach. At that point he had not eaten for 7 days.
When I look back I see that God does everything for a reason, and when we were turned away by that hospital on both occasions it was because God had already gone before us, and the people that he wanted to treat my dad were not in that hospital. During that time although the doctors misdiagnosed him God kept placing on my heart that something was not right so I stayed up all night praying, I fasted that his condition was something that could be removed, and I began looking for a private hospital. I managed to find one and God let me relax in the knowledge that my dad would be looked after there.
We had the most amazing doctor named doctor Wong. The level of care, concern, efficiency, and attention he gave to my dad I know only God could have gone before us and placed Doctor Wong in our lives, God blessed our family with good hearted people, so every scan and visit we had the costs were split between us. On day one of seeing doctor Wong he told my dad that he had bowel obstruction, and that an immediate CT scan needed to be done. The next day the results came in and we were called back into Doctor Wongs office and there we were told he indeed had Bowel cancer, we were then told that the cancer could be removed which is what I was praying for.
The day after he went for a colonoscopy where they performed a biopsy to confirm for 100% that the Tumour was cancerous which it was. Having been so badly neglected by the NHS and knowing that God himself placed us in that hospital to be treated by these doctors we were going to pay for him to have the surgery privately whist would have cost us over £40,000 plus all the aftercare. We did not have that kind of money. Doctor Wong said even though we want to go privately the costs are very high he kept on reminding us of that, with great concern he gave us the option to go to my dad’s GP and give them the photos from the colonoscopy and the reports, letting them know it’s urgent and he must be given surgery immediately. This was to get the ball rolling on both sides just in case we could not afford the surgery privately.
I called my bank to see if I could get a loan out to pay my part of the cost, the bank refused me the loan I was gutted. Me and my sister were speaking and saying God will make a way he did not bring us this far to leave us.
We went to speak to the surgeon that doctor Wong had recommended named Doctor Mukhtar the following day. He greeted us warmly and knew everything about my dad. He also mentioned that we do not live in North London and usually he would send us back to a more local hospital mentioning Kings College hospital as we lived in South London, but instead he gave us a choice to be treated there or locally. We said we were happy to stay up there because we trust those are the best doctors for my dad.
I began whispering to my sister how much is it let’s ask for the price, he then said he will perform the surgery on the NHS for us and we would not have to be placed on a waiting list and this would be done the next day. We were ecstatic. As we were leaving mum said before we left home she wrote a note saying, “paid in full” and placed it in her bible and indeed it was paid in full. Straight away I know why God did not allow my application for the loan to go through he had already known he was going to sort out the costs.
As he was promised, the surgery was performed and prior to the surgery Dr Mukhtar mentioned that he had a possibility of receiving a permanent stoma bag he really did not want that.
As they wheeled my dad down to the operating theatre we prayed behind in the holy spirit and charged the atmosphere and prayed and worshipped God whist he was in the theatre being operated on. We commanded angles to watch over him and be in every corner of the room, for the spirit of God to fill that room, and that God would work through the hands of everyone. Indeed, Gods hand performed that surgery he worked through every person in the operating theatre and the major surgery was a success and he did not receive the stoma bag which was a miracle.
When we saw him in recovery his face glowed and he did not look like a face of someone that was just under such major surgery, he was able to speak and never once pressed for morphine for pain. The day after he was walking a week later he was home and looked better than ever. When he went back 2 weeks after to remove the staples he had healed very well, and a week after that doctor Mukhtar and the nurses were shock at how mobile he was and said we only perform the surgery 3 weeks ago and he is recovering very fast. He said that he managed to remove all the cancer and there is a 60% chance that the cancer won’t come back. However, if he has chemo therapy it will increase by 13% giving him a 73% chance it won’t come back. He then referred us to speak to a chemo therapy doctor named Doctor Lenard the following week, who would explain better how chemo therapy works, by the time we had spoken to her my dad had already decided not to go for the chemo therapy, we all agreed and know that god has taken us this far and he will not leave us. Chemo is a poison and no good for the body, it destroys everything it touches. So now is the time to exercise faith and trust in God. I know, he knows, and we all know that my dad is healed, when God starts any work he completes it he does not heal you to give you back the disease God is the great physician when the doctors say no God says yes! I put complete faith and trust in Jesus Christ my saviour, the healer. The bible says by his stripes we are healed. Therefore, we are healed already we just need faith to believe he can do it, and trust to know that he will do it and it will be done. The next time I come to speak about my dad it will be another testimony that god can do exceeding and abundantly above all we could ever ask, think, or imagine. That is the God I serve and you should serve him today because through him alone is the impossible possible just trust him and try him today. GOD IS AMAZING AND ALL MY PRAISE AND GLORY IS TO HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE AND WILL DO IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!
