If you’ve received the medical diagnosis of cancer, you are not alone. Over 1.6 million Americans received a similar diagnosis this year and nearly 12 million American have received that same diagnosis in the past. Thankfully, the number of these diagnoses is dropping each year, and survival rates continue to improve. If you have received a diagnosis of cancer, there is hope. Here is your guide to receiving your healing from cancer.
Step 1: To Get Healed from Cancer, Understand that Jesus Already Paid the Price
When Jesus gave His life on the cross, He paid the price for your healing. He paid the bill so you can be whole—spirit, soul and body. Isaiah 53:4-5 says:
Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole (The Amplified Bible).
The last line of that verse says, “We are healed and made whole.” It doesn’t say that one day you will be healed and made whole. It doesn’t say that possibly, if it’s the will of the Lord, you might be healed and made whole. It says you already are!
Step 2: To Get Healed from Cancer, Dig Into the Word
“The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38). Scripture clearly states that we fulfill the will of God in our lives by faith (Hebrews 11:6). If you’re sick, you receive healing by faith. You receive anything and everything that you need from God…by faith! Faith is simply believing what God says in His Word. It means trusting what He says more than your diagnosis.
Romans 10:17 tells you how to get faith: “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” If you want your faith to grow so you can get healed from cancer, then dig into the Word. Read it, think about it, pray it and memorize it as often as you can. Click here to get explore our Real Help Healing section. [https://www.kcm.org/real-help/healing]
Step 3: To Get Healed from Cancer, Learn from Trusted Ministers
As you begin to dig into God’s Word for yourself, also take time to learn from trusted ministers. Many of these ministers have themselves experienced supernatural healing. They know what you are going through and will teach you how to stand against your symptoms and for your complete healing. Watch the Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcast. Visit one of Gloria Copeland’s Healing Schools. Let these ministers encourage you so you can stand spiritually, emotionally and physically strong.
Step 4: To Get Healed from Cancer, Speak the Truth
Once you begin to meditate on the Word and build your faith, then speaking God’s truth—the truth that by the stripes of Jesus you are healed and whole—becomes natural. Even if you are still dealing with symptoms and pain and side effects, you can proclaim that you are healed. And continue to proclaim that until you those symptoms subside.
Step 5: To Get Healed from Cancer, Take Care of Your Body
God has already given you an amazing gift—the human body. Within it, He designed systems that allow it to heal itself. Learn how you can strengthen your body through diet, exercise and supplements. Begin eliminating bad habits like smoking, poor eating and inactivity. You are in a fight for your health, and now is not the time for you to be lax. If you need help, then find a naturopathic doctor in your area who can work with your medical doctors to create a healthy plan.
Step 6: To Get Healed from Cancer, Pray!
Only the Holy Spirit can give you clear direction for what you need to do for your treatment (John 14:26). While the Holy Spirit may lead one person to follow a traditional, Western treatment, He may lead another to rely on a holistic approach and yet another to solely press into to Lord in faith. Only He can direct you, so commit yourself to prayer and follow the Holy Spirit’s leading.
If you are unsure about what the Holy Spirit is telling you to do, then ask your pastor or trusted, Christian friend to stand with you in prayer. And if you don’t have a person like that, then call KCM’s prayer line at 1-817-852-6000. One of our Prayer Ministers would love to pray with you.
Step 7: To Get Healed of Cancer, Reflect God’s Love
In Mark 11:24-25 Jesus said, “I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” As you commit to improving your spiritual, emotional and physical health, be sure to forgive anyone who has wronged you. Just as you need to rid your life of toxic habits and food (see Step 5), you also want to remove any toxic emotions. Let go of anger and offense and commit to walking in forgiveness and mercy with others.
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” (3 John 1:2). Begin putting these steps into practice today!
