How do you know when you struck a nerve with Satan?

August 1, 2015

How about when you publish something and wake up the next day to discover he's thrown lymphoma at you?

While I was working on posts​ for and blogspot, one day my tongue was horribly ​painful​ while eating. Felt like a cross between a charlie horse in my tongue, and the muscle fibers being ripped apart at the root of my tongue. Next day same thing. It hurt so badly I was almost unable to swallow my second bite of sandwich, which therefore became my last bit​e​ for that meal​.

Next day, I was washing my face at the sink and, eyes closed, rubbed/rinsed with the washcloth - and surprisingly hurt my neck a lot when my fingertips passed down over my jaw. Eyes bolted open - what was that?! -
why did that hurt?! - my neck shouldn't be there! - that should be air space!!

Two (or more) of my lymph nodes were so swollen, there was barely any depression in my skin under my jaw line. I felt them. They did not feel like swollen glands when you're sick,
rather soft and squishy. They felt like the lymphoma I'd felt on someone else before, slightly malleable, but basically quite firm​. (God healed him, Praise the Lord!!!) I tried turning my head side to side and could feel some pulling there as everything was stretched so tight. I tried dropping my chin to my chest and only ​made it about halfway.

So it was pretty easy to put two and two together.

​Satan was trying to scare me off, or incapacitate me so I could not write or talk further. ​
I told Satan and his minions off - I am a daughter of God and they have no authority over me! - I cast out the growths in Jesus' name, and released the Holy Spirit as the healing balm of Gilead! I also prayed in the spirit.

God is so faithful! By early that afternoon, the next time I looked in the mirror, the growths were down about 75%.
A friend saw me at this point, and she immediately noticed how badly swollen my neck (still) looked.​

Next morning, they were larger again - maybe back up to 50%.
Apparently he was hoping I would think my authority had failed and I would succumb the second time around. ​So I repeated my prayer
​(like the first time, both in the spirit and in the natural) ​
and declaration over myself. Once again, the healing power of God showed up. Within 30 minutes they were
​visibly ​
shrinking away again.
​ I'm sure they began shrinking immediately, but I didn't look in the mirror for the first half hour.​

As I write now [it was then evening of August 1], it is hard to detect the growths at all. I'd guess less than 10%. I'll hit them with another prayer booster shot before going to bed in a few minutes.

I just kind of got a chuckle out of it, and thought I'd share.
​ Good proof of the Scripture, "But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, 'God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.' Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James4:6-7, emphasis added.)

All thanksgiving, praise, honor, and glory to God!!!


  1. Debra,

    That was a wonderful testimony.
    I think the Body of Christ needs to be more aware of satan and his tactics, as well as their authority in Jesus Christ.

  2. You are so right, Peggy! Most of us have no awareness of the power the Father has given us in Christ. So many suffer and even die needlessly! And the evil one just keeps plugging away, devouring us like someone eating an elephant, one bite at a time. Jesus won back our dominion over evil on the cross. But Lucifer keeps trying to trick us into giving it up again. It's truly sad how often he succeeds. It is time we put on the Armor and Stand!
