In May 2023, I was diagnosed with cancer, but today, by God’s amazing power and grace, I am fully healed.  Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! The journey I went through, from despair to hope and joy, has taught me three things that I would like to share: 1) DEFERENCE to God; 2) DEPENDENCE on God; and 3) DELIVERANCE by God.


After several tests and scans, doctors found two cancer tumours, one on my liver and the other on my kidney. Imagine my shock when I was told that I had not one but two cancer tumours!! My immediate emotions were that of denial, fear, and anxiety. It was a situation where I felt I had no control over it. I felt totally helpless and there is nothing I can do, except to turn to Jesus. As the song goes:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace”

John 14:27 says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

When I turned my eyes to Jesus, a sense of peace that surpasses all understanding came over me. I knew then that I am in good hands!  As we DEFER our situation to God, He gives us hope when we are out of options. Psalm 46:1 says “God is our refuge and strength; an ever-present help in time of need.” Our loving God is our source of help! We can run to Him and not be afraid.


I learnt that healing begins when we do something, when we reach out and take a step of faith. We simply need to pray and trust in the Lord.  We can depend on the Lord for He is a God who never fails!

During this period, the song Trust In God by Elevation Worship has greatly encouraged me:

“Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

He’s been my fourth man in the fire time after time

Perfect submission, all is at rest

I know the Author of tomorrow has ordered my steps

I trust in God, my Saviour

The One who will never fail

He will never fail”

There were many people who prayed for my healing; my family, cell group, the Worship & Music ministry members and my colleagues. My cell group even took turns to pray for me for every hour I spent in surgery. My colleagues would pray for me every day during our daily office morning devotions. Knowing that my family and friends are praying for me gave me strength and encouragement through those challenging moments, and I am thankful for each and everyone of them. On one occasion, at my friend’s house, as I was being prayed over by a healing ministry pastor, I was asked if I felt any heat on my hands. I said no, but instead, white particles began to form on my hands! I cannot explain how the particles appear but I believe that God is saying to me “I am real, I have heard you, I will heal.”  What a divine encounter I had with God!

I am reminded of the story in Mark 2:3-12 where Jesus healed the paralyzed man. Because Jesus saw the faith of his friends, He healed the man. I believe that God will do the same for me. We can DEPEND on God for He is a faithful God, a way-maker and a promise-keeper! As we seek the Lord in prayer, He hears and He will answer!


The surgery to remove the two cancer tumours took place in June 2023. After spending a total of almost twelve hours in the operating theatre, doctors declared the surgery a success and four days after surgery, I was discharged from hospital!  Not only did the doctors successfully remove the tumours, but the histopathology also indicates that there was a “complete spontaneous necrosis of the liver tumour”. The liver tumour had completely died on its own!! The doctor even asked if I had sought other medical treatment from another hospital (which I did not) to try and explain the necrosis of the tumour. It can only be God’s mighty hand that caused the tumour to die. Furthermore, post-surgery, there is no need for medication nor any therapy at all.

I am healed in Jesus name! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Jeremiah 30:17 says, “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord.” What a promise by our Jehovah Rapha! We prayed, He heard, and He answered!  He has DELIVERED me from my affliction! Praise the Lord!

I would like to encourage anyone of us who is going through a difficult situation; 1) DEFER your situation to God, turn your eyes towards God and look to Him for help; 2) DEPEND on God, pray for His healing and restoration, and 3) wait for God to DELIVER you from your situation, trust in Him and praise Him for His deliverance!

I give thanks and praise to our amazing God for His healing grace and love. He deserves all the glory, praise, and honour. Our God heals and He still heals today.
