When dealing with stage 4 cancer in 1992, I chose to use the Word of God as medicine. I wrote out and diligently spoke every healing scripture over myself several times a day. I was persistent and I prefaced each citation with, “It is written.” When I was too weak to speak all the scriptures, I simply said, “It is written.” I posted this phrase all over the house so I would see it throughout the day.
I walked through this season alone with God without any support in the natural. My prognosis in the natural was death. My firm belief was found in Psalm 118:17: “I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord.” At that time, I purchased a stone from Jerusalem engraved with this scripture. To this day I have that very stone on my desk where I read it every morning.
“It is written.” It is with these words that Jesus dismissed the devil’s torments in the wilderness. Jesus set a pattern right here for you. Whatever wilderness experience you are in today, know that He is right there with you empowering you to press through. Whatever storm you are in the midst of, know that He will never leave you or forsake you.
This is why I use, “It is written,” in my writings. It is powerful. It is life giving. It is a weapon of warfare that Jesus Himself gave to each of us. Use it!
I am cancer free today. To God and only God be the glory. Truly, the Word works if you know it and you work it!
For it is written:
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
