I want to address an issue that I deal with a lot in helping people that encounter long term pain or illness. The pattern I see many people take is to keep rebuking the pain or illness over and over with this warfare mentality. Mark 11:23 says to speak to the mountain and command it to be removed and BELIEVE in your heart that what you say will come to pass. OK. I commanded(rebuked) the pain or illness. Now what? Did you believe that what you said will come to pass? Then why keep rebuking or fighting and wear yourself out instead of praising and thanking Father God, Jesus, for the victory. One focuses on the problem. the other focuses on the answer. One is self effort. The other is "it is finished", grace , Holy Spirit effort.
