Symptoms Are “Lying Vanities!”
They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy (Jonah 2:8).
It would be unwise to think that because
you put God’s Word to work and experienced a miracle of healing in your body for instance, the symptoms may never return. However, whether or
not they do, makes no difference, because they’re lying vanities; a mirage!
Of course, Satan won’t be happy at
your miracle, and don’t expect him to congratulate you for the healing and say, “I‘ll never come back.” He’ll throw
symptoms at you to make your faith waiver so you can question the veracity of God’s Word. Don’t accede to his gimmicks. Stand your grounds
in faith; Remember Peter, sinking into the raging tempest when he shifted his gaze from the Master to the boisterous waves, and
became overwhelmed with fear.
Instead of musing over the symptoms of an
ailment that no longer exists in your body, focus on the Word; maintain your confession and keep declaring your health. It’s a fight of faith
where you must ward-off Satan’s deceptive schemes and lies with your faith-filled proclamations.
Like Jesus, learn to use the Word against Satan.
Right after God announced concerning Jesus: “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.” The Bible says,
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil” (Matthew 4:1). He said to Jesus, “If thou be the son of God, command these stones to be made bread (Matthew 4:3). Satan tempted Jesus
by questioning exactly what God had said.
Load your spirit with the Word, so that whether
the symptoms return or not, you’re unshakeable; you’ll perpetually remain victorious. As long as you have the Word in your spirit it
doesn’t matter what comes out against you, you’ll live triumphantly always.
Prayer Dear Father, thank you for
the glorious victory you wrought for me in Christ Jesus, placing me far above all the wiles and machinations of the enemy. I put my absolute trust in
your Word which is able to keep me in perpetual victory and I refuse to observe lying vanities, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
2 Corinthians 4:18
