Once you receive a victory such as a healing, one thing to be aware of is the enemy will many times come back and try and put the same symptoms on you. This testimony is a continuation from my last one I posted, so you may need to go back and read it if you haven’t already, or reread it if you have.

After my healing manifested from an attack I had on my body for almost 6 months, about a month later the same symptoms reappeared. We have all probably heard the saying that your mind is a playground for the enemy. He will bombard your mind with all kinds of things and if you let those thoughts into your heart, they will take seed and produce – just not what you’re looking for! That’s why it says in Prov. 4:23 to guard your heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life.

So when these same symptoms reappeared, I was once again angry, to the point I was ‘being tempted’ to maybe go and have it checked out. But then I would immediately think, “Well, if I go have it checked out and they find something, I know it’s a lie because God’s Word says that by the stripes of Jesus I AM HEALED.” Well, this went on for maybe 3-4 weeks where I was in a battle between my flesh and my Spirit man (Gal. 5). They were definitely in a war one against the other!

One Sunday afternoon, after getting home from church, a friend and I had decided to meet up and go on a walk. As we were out walking and I was telling her what was going on once again, she stopped me in my tracks and said, “Lisa, where is your focus? You need to get your focus back on the Word of God and not on what is going on in your body.” When she said that, I knew without a doubt this was the Spirit of God speaking out of her mouth to me. There was an instant change that took place on the inside of me. And by the way, this is not something I didn’t know.

I know that what you focus on will be magnified (good or bad) and what you starve or neglect (good or bad) will die. I have taught on this, I have experienced this many times in my life. But somehow this particular thing going on with my body got my focus off what it should have been on. There was something in my body that would take place and when it did, I would get so angry but really that anger was fear. So from that point forward after she spoke that to me that day, when this particular thing would take place in my body, I just gave it NO attention – NONE – NADA. I would just start worshipping and praising God and thanking Him for HIS goodness and that’s where I would keep my focus — not on what I saw with my eyes or what was going on in my body. After a few days, do you know that I was completely healed and made whole! No problem since then — the door was closed on the enemy that day. I overcame and victory was mine.

There are many things in our lives that we have and will walk through. I know I have, and I know I always get the victory – always!! Why some battles are harder than others, I’m not quite sure because the answer is the same for all of them. But if you will stand and believe the power of God, you will see victory every time.

You might have days, even months, you will be tempted to cave in and go the ways of the world (and God meets every person where they are at that particular time). But one thing I know, I want God’s best because I know that Jesus has already won every battle we will ever face and the victory is ours, if we don’t quit!! Remember – what we focus on will be magnified; what we starve will die! It doesn’t matter what it is. This is a law that applies spiritually as well as in the natural.
