At this time in my life, this is a very difficult subject for me to address. My daughter, age 42, just passed away 6 months ago with stage 4 breast cancer. We stood with her and her family in faith against this attack for almost three years.
I know Father is sovereign, but on this side of the veil we are in the middle of a war between the two kingdoms for the souls (minds, wills and emotions) of all of us. Thank goodness that when our body dies, our souls and spirits pass thru the veil safely into the realm of eternity. “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” The scripture tells us about the killing of our body.
(Luk 12:4 "I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do.
Luk 12:5 "But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!)
I know good and well that cancer is not from Father.
Years ago, as an Elder in church, I used to have mixed results when praying for physical healing. I have learned that there is a direct link between a person’s thinking, and their physical health. Perhaps the best resource I could recommend is a book by Henry Wright entitled “A More Excellent Way”. He addresses this subject head on. I read his book twice and completely agree with his findings.
I am still left with some significant questions. Are we in the time spoken of in the bible that we have a form of Godliness but deny the power? And I do not understand the power of people’s agreement in unbelief. Christ, being the Son of God, could do little miracles in His home town because of unbelief.
There are many scriptures on physical healing in the bible, and I would encourage you to research them. We walk by faith, not by sight.
