Enduring Faith for My Healing

Suani Guzman - 10/05/2008
(David's notes in red)

I want to bring praise and glory to our dear Savior Jesus for a wonderful work in our life. I have learned so much through a trial He has brought me through.

About the beginning of July, I started to seek the Lord in prayer and asked Him to do anything He wanted with me to bear fruit. I didn't know what I was getting into, although looking back I wouldn't change a thing because the benefits have been so great.

Around that time I started to feel some funny flips in my heart once in a while. I also had a dream where I was lying on the floor with a baby boy and a very ferocious wolf was trying to bite off the baby's head. (Satan would attempt to take away the thinking of the spiritual man that is Christ in you.)

With time, my heart started to act up more and more, until one day I felt a sharp pain in my chest that was very painful and I started to feel like I was going to pass out. We were at a meeting and just started to pray and recite 1 Peter 2:24 and Isaiah 53. After about five minutes I was OK. For the rest of the day I had a dull pain in my chest.

Through the next weeks it started to get worse and panic attacks came along with it. A sister in the Lord told me that the panic attacks are a symptom of heart problems. In this time of weakness my family in Christ was being strong for me and prayed very much. I thank God for the body of Christ. This was a major spiritual attack. Many nights I couldn't sleep. Sometimes I would call them in the middle of the night to pray with me.

Slowly, I learned to take authority over fear and got better. Then we had a trip to Mexico. The devil told me that I wouldn't make it and that I would die on the plane. I told him that he was a liar and God wasn't and I would be fine. I will admit it was a trial, especially on the way back. On the second to last plane, I felt that I couldn't breath and my chest was so tight and painful with a headache and nausea and loose bowls. After we got back the symptoms were worse but every day the Lord helped me to grow stronger and stronger in faith. God was teaching me endurance and patience. I had to continually cast down thoughts that were contrary to the Word. I am not strong in my flesh but God has been my strength through it all. Many nights I got through by entering the Sabbath Rest (that it was all taken care of), speaking the promises and listening to the Bible to get my thoughts under control. {2Co.10:3} For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh {4} (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), {5} casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Another great lesson was walking by faith and not by sight. Every day I've had to ignore how bad I felt and get up and do my duties. Sometimes when parts of my body were going numb the Lord gave me the boldness to shout the promises and the symptoms would leave. Another thing I learned was to not be double-minded. I had been telling everyone that the Lord healed me but admitted the symptoms, so somehow I was giving place to my sight. The good confession has to be complete. I have watched the symptoms go away and it's so wonderful to see how God is bringing so much fruit out of this. Even my friend and sister who didn't understand that we aren't under the curse are getting faith of their own. The inner man has to be transformed by the Word.

I asked God to bring my thoughts, words and actions in agreement with His Word. He is faithful. It is a daily walk with Jesus with my eyes on Him, casting down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against His Word. Satan would tell me that my lack of exercise and diet caused this, that I needed to change my diet. I cast that down and ate as always. The battle is the Lord's and He has taken all worry away, which is the Sabbath Rest. I thank the Lord for all the UBM Bible studies that taught me the truth that sets us free.

Just one more thing: On our trip to Mexico, my daughter got a very high fever for two days. My husband, who is an unbeliever right now, wanted to take her to the doctor. I told him that he should if he wanted to but to please not ask me to do it because I walked by faith and not by sight. He decided to wait. I was shy to tell everyone that I was believing God for her healing. On the second night I confessed my sin of double-mindedness and unbelief and went to sleep in the Sabbath Rest that it was done. The next morning the fever was gone and she slowly went back to eating. PTL! My husband was amazed! Noteworthy is that he was the only one who was sick, with stomach problems, most of our stay down there.

Thank you, Father of our dear Lord Jesus, for such a great salvation and for the trials that bring us into His image so that we encourage others in their faith.
