Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

A Life Lived Wholly Unto God - Chapter 10: Carrollton

A Testament of the Grace of God on His Servant
 by Kathryn Currier with Doyle Davidson

Doyle left Argyle in June 1976 and moved to Carrolton, living there for eleven months. The following is a testimony of overcoming physical affliction:

“My grandfather, Frank Miller started walking with a cane when he was forty years old, because of pain in his knees. The devil told me for years, ‘When you turn forty you are going to have knee problems like your grandfather.’ I had been under tremendous pressure in Argyle from religious spirits with Baptists ministers who had been after me because I wouldn’t submit to their church. It brought great affliction to my body and my knees were very sore, making it hard for me to mow my yard with a push mower.

I purposed one day in June, I was going to overcome this, I WAS going to mow my yard with a push mower, and I walked for two miles on a concrete sidewalk, in great pain, speaking Isaiah 53:

4) Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem his stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

The next day, I could barely walk. I said, ‘Devil, I’m going two more miles’ and after about a mile and a half walking on the sidewalk speaking Isaiah 53:4-5, the power of God broke through and healed my knees and they have never hurt since. I have jogged on asphalt, concrete, grass, wherever I’ve been, and today thirty-six years later, there is not a pain in either knee.

One thing I have learned, any place there is a weakness in a person’s body or soul, when they come under pressure from the devil, the weakness will manifest with pain or some kind of sickness. When I started walking with God, I had toothaches like I had never had because of the afflictions that came, I just learned to never stop believing and overcame them.”

During that same time in Carrolton, Doyle and Patti had neighbors that lived across the alley behind them who often communicated by CB radios. However Doyle and Patti were privy to what their neighbors’ thought were private conversations, coming through the speakers in their television and stereo. I appreciate how God moved on Doyle’s behalf when he prayed, but I also appreciate Doyle’s humor as he took advantage of the opportunity to mention “Tycoon and Foxy Lady’s” conversations he had been picking up.

“We had moved to Carrolton from Argyle in June of 1976. In the fall of that same year almost every evening we would hear over our television’s speakers, ‘This is Tycoon calling Foxy Lady! I am leaving Dallas. Have dinner ready when I get there…’ Every time he would talk to her or she would talk to him on their CB’s we would hear it through our television or stereo speakers. It became such a nuisance! I made a decision to call the FCC, but just before I made the phone call, an article appeared in the Dallas Morning News stating there were so many violations with CB radios being reported that the FCC was one year behind in their investigations. I thought I cannot wait a year…so I prayed. Soon after, a great windstorm blew his antenna down and it remained down for five months because he couldn’t get parts to make the repairs. The antenna he had was actually illegal."
