“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
Ever since I got out the Military some years ago, I have had these attacks in my body from my service time. After I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior, the attacks did not stop but over time, they have increased; I have been suffering for years with issues in my body. I thought surly after accepting Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior, the pain and agony in my body would leave because the Word of God says that we are healed by Jesus’ stripes (Isaiah 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24)! So why am I still suffering in my body? Why have more issues developed in my body? Why am I in pain 24/7, 365 days a year? Why? Why? Why?
I have heard all kinds of answers; one in particular, “You need more faith!” NO! That is NOT true! Paul tells us in Romans 12:3, that God has given everyone a measure of faith. In the context of the verse, Paul is saying not to think of yourself more highly than you ought but it remains the same, God has given us a measure of faith. This is what Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 17:20, after they asked Him in verse 19, why they could not cast the devil out of a lunatic child (Matthew 17:14-18):
“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (biblegateway.com – KJV).
What Paul said in Romans 12:3 and what Jesus said in Matthew 17:20, are two of the reasons why I said we do not need more faith; we have faith and even if we have not grown in the faith God has given us, Jesus said even if our faith was the size of a mustard seed (which is a tiny seed), we could speak to the mountain and it WILL BE removed! Jesus said that with that mustard seed size faith, NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO US! Therefore, one of the reasons why we are not seeing our healing is unbelief; we are not believing God like we say we do – if we ask God “Why?” He will tell us. I am asking Him for ALL my reasons!
Therefore, we don’t need more faith but we need to kick unbelief out of our lives by learning who we are in God and learning who the Trinity is; THEN start using the faith God gave us! THEN we can speak to the mountains (sickness, disease, infirmities, lack, etc., etc., etc.) and command that they be removed and cast into the sea! Jesus has given us authority in Luke 10:19; this is what Jesus told the disciples and is telling us today: “Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on [a]serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you” (biblegateway.com – AMP).
I have been applying the Word of God from Isaiah 53:4-5 to my body and coming against the things attacking my body for some time but now, I am getting more aggressive as I learn how to fight with the Word of God! And I have kicked unbelief OUT by learning who I am and who the Trinity is! It was a hurting thing when I learned that I was not trusting God like I thought I was – it was a rude awakening!
I came across a teaching by Andrew Wommack called “You’ve Already God It!” and it helped me a lot, so I will put some quotes here of what he said; you can also study it for yourselves (click the title above) and ask Holy Spirit, to give you your interpretation. Andrew said he was praying for his son and was not seeing him healed. So he asked God what was wrong? This is what the Lord told him, “You’re fighting to get your son healed instead of fighting because he is healed.” Andrew said there is a big difference in the two; and the Lord gave him the difference. This is what Andrew said: “The Lord told me that instead of defending my son’s healing and just releasing what Jesus already provided, I was trying to get Him to do something.” In essences, we are not to fight to GET healed but fight because WE ARE healed; we are to fight to defend our healing and that it be released! Ask Holy Spirit to give YOU full revelation of what the Word means, “And by His strips (wounds) we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5. War with the Word! Don’t be moved by what you see; that is only temporary but what you can’t see is eternal!
May God bless you all and keep you all!
