They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
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 on 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” (Matthew 4:17), the Bible says, “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil” (Matthew 4:1). Satan said to Jesus, “If thou be the son of God, command these stones to be made bread” (Matthew 4:3). He tempted Jesus by questioning Him on what exactly 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.
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.
