I guess that’s a funny question to ask but I have a point to make. What is it that you need but find elusive to receive – healing, deliverance, finances . . .? Maybe all three and more!
What I’m going to share is applicable to any situation but I’m going to use money as an example but then show you how it applies to healing.
Let’s say you are in a situation where you’re being held up and the perpetrator demands you turn over your money. If you listen to him, you’ll let fear get in and turn over everything to him. Why? Because you’re afraid and when you let fear rule, faith goes out the door. Fear will negate you faith. But if you stand your ground on the Word of God, you’ll not only be able to resist the robbery, but you’ll still be in charge.
Now, let me elaborate. You are the one with the authority and power to operate in the earth. Satan has no authority except what he can get you to turn over to him. The only authority he has is what he steals from you. He is an outlaw spirit with no authority to operate in the earth. That’s why he has to deceive people into turning over their authority so he can beat their spiritual brains out!
So, you ask, just how does he do that? Simply by getting you to believe his lies instead of God’s Word. In order to disbelieve God, you have to believe the lies of the devil. But, believing God’s Word will get the promises to manifest in your life.
Jesus came to destroy the works of Satan and we are now required to enforce that defeat. Remember, Satan has no authority except what he wrenches out of your hands. When you get an evil report, do you automatically agree with it? Or do you stand your ground on God’s Word and say, “No way!” If you agree with the evil report, you are agreeing with the lies of the enemy and turning over your authority to him.
But, on the other hand, if you stand on God’s Word saying, “No evil shall befall me nor shall and plague come near me”, then you’re standing your ground and using your authority to whip the devil at his own game.
Remember, you’re the one in charge. You have the healing that Jesus bought for you and the devil is trying to steal it. Don’t let him. He tries to dupe you with symptoms and if you agree with the symptoms, then he can put the sickness/disease on you.
Here are some vital scriptures to study:
