Matthew 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”
Often, when news comes of tumors and cancer and the diagnosis is given, we begin searching for hope. Hope that may come in the form of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. We long to hear the words, “cancer-free” or “in remission”, but that is not always the case for all who hear they have cancer.
My son’s mother-in-law has been diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma brain cancer that has proven to be very aggressive. Most patients diagnosed with this form of cancer are given six months to live – she is still alive after eleven.
However, we just received news that her tumor has grown back to its original size and wrapped itself around the brain stem and one of the main arteries of the brain. Needless to say, it was not the best news to receive. But as her husband mentioned from the pulpit of Heritage Baptist church in Wallingford, CT, neither was the news that Lazarus was dead.
As there are thousands that read this blog, I would like to beg an indulgence to covet to pray for Katrina Bish, wife of Pastor Tom Bish. Many who follow us on Facebook have read the updates, but this goes out to all to pray for a miracle that God would truly get all the glory for healing her of this cancer. This week, they received news that she now has but 2-3 months left before the cancer will take her life.
They have used this opportunity in their life to be a witness to God’s goodness amidst a storm of epic proportions. The family has been quick to mention that God is good – All the time. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been given and much if not all their bills have been paid. New treatments, therapies and options have presented themselves at times when it looked the bleakest. God truly has been good.
Doctors can only do with what science we have available to us. But we who name the name of Jesus and stand with the Bish family know:
Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
God is no respecter of persons. He loved Lazarus – He loves Katrina. The man born of four to Jesus was healed because of the faith of the four – not the one in the bed. We continue to pray for a miracle. Please covenant with s to pray to that end.
I ask that you like this post if you are joining with us to pray for her miracle. We will let the family know that wherever you are around the world, you are joining with us to see God perform a miracle!
