Ruby Lambert Wagner lost three brothers and her father to cancer. Yet, when this woman of great faith was warned by God of her own diagnosis, she didn’t give up.
In November 2015, doctors found cancer cells in her esophagus, lymph nodes, and her left lung. The medical community predicted she’d be dead in three months.
God whispered peace. He said she would live. Ruby clung to this promise through six weeks of Chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
She rebuked those that warned of great sickness. She claimed her hair in the name of Jesus. Unsurprisingly, the small bouts of nauseated-discomfort were minor. Miraculously, her hair experienced no loss. When family members said private goodbyes, she reassured them that she wouldn’t die.
But she didn’t do these things alone. Amidst a topsy-turvy surge of emotions, God’s presence reassured Ruby that she wasn’t forsaken. He was with her during every treatment. He would heal her.
Five months later, she was pronounced cancer-free. As a precaution, a surgeon removed her clean lymph nodes and a lingering shadow from her lower left lung.
Ruby believes the heart-shaped remnant is God’s reminder of His love.
A year later, she’s sharing her testimony to encourage others to hold on to their promise from God. “People can talk, but God has the last say.”
Child of God, if you’ve been diagnosed with any cancer or disease, please remember that you aren’t alone. God is with you. He is for you. And there is healing power in Christ Jesus.
