So, how exactly do you keep the devil from stealing from you?  What does that look like?  I can speak from experience in regards to healing and two practical ways it has taken place for me.  These are definitely not the only two ways to receive your healing, I am just giving you two examples so this does not turn into a 300 page book. One way was, I simply acted upon the Word that had become revelation knowledge to me.  The Holy Spirit divinely revealed 1 Peter 2:24 to me, and showed me I was ALREADY HEALED, I didn't have to do anything to get healed except believe!  The Holy Spirit revealed to me that the devil was trying to steal what Christ already purchased for me.  Once He showed me that knowledge, faith sprang forth in my heart, and I commanded the enemy to release my body in the Name of Jesus.  For the full testimony and revelation, read the devotional posted April 10, 2016.  Since then, the enemy has tried to attack my body again, for the Word of God reveals to us that he will try to return, but I simply acted on the knowledge the Holy Spirit gave me, and time and time again any symptoms of sickness departed immediately.  A different time, it seemed that bronchitis or pneumonia was trying to take root in my body.  Again, I acted on the revelation I had previously received by demanding the enemy to take his hands off of my body because I was the purchased possession of the Lord, and once I finished speaking that, the Holy Spirit prompted me to go for a run outside.  I knew it was Him but a thought came immediately to steal, "I probably shouldn't go for a run with what I have going on in my chest.  That probably wouldn't be wisdom."  Sometimes we allow our mind to usurp God's wisdom and we miss out on the blessing that has already been provided because of a refusal to act, that is called doubt and unbelief.  For 3 days I pondered what the Holy Spirit told me to do, all the while the symptoms continued to get worse.  Finally, (sometimes I am a little slow to catch on, BUT I always do catch on), I went for my run IN FAITH.  It wasn't a "I  am going to try this", NO, it was with FAITH IN MY HEART. I went running and by the next day, all symptoms had departed, Glory to God!  That was my faith springing into action by obeying the Holy Spirit.  Sometimes your faith may look like you speaking the Word, and sometimes it may be an actual act of obedience in response to a prompting of the Holy Spirit.  Either way, when you are in faith, people will SEE IT and KNOW IT.  That's why James said, I will show you my faith by my works.  He was telling us, because of the abundance of faith in my heart, it causes me to act. I must act because it is bursting forth out of my heart, and I cannot contain what is on the inside of me any longer, that which is working in me must come out of me!  This is true and genuine heart faith, and true heart faith ALWAYS produces Godly results!  1 Timothy 4:8 (HCSB): for the training of the body has a limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and also that life which is to come!
