An Experience What is great about experiences we share is the information. Even a bad experience can be used as a learning tool for emotional growth and just taking heed to stay away from a bad deal. But the experience only goes so far and it stops. It is carried as far as the need for that experience is present.
An experience, good or bad, with a person, company, or event is static and can change over time. A testimony has power from God behind it and is dynamic. While the testimony of a person is in regards to a specific event(s), the power behind it does not return void and can alter other experiences.
My first encounter with the jezebel spirit and warfare was many years ago as a young person serving in the Air Force. Born into spiritual warfare, I did not recognize the warning voice of the Holy Spirit and had no clue how to take authority to defeat the spirit possessing someone I encountered. I ignored the voice and perished through lack of knowledge. However, God's plan would prevail. I should have been killed and labeled a suicide. God sent a woman to rush to my house with her young son and the neighbors kid to thwart the people trying to break in my house and make it look like a suicide. I should have been homeless and should have lived like a person completely wiped out by all swarming, crawling, consuming, and the cutting locust. I never went hungry one day, I never wore rags or hand me downs, I never was homeless, I never had trans-portation issues, I never went without. The finances may have changed, but oddly I always had nice clothes, perfume, jewelry, went to Creighton, had cool careers, and continued to move forward. I have never been destitute. God has had my back and was there when I didn't know Him. Even when I fell in the trap of believing He worked through a psychic because I witnessed water turn to blood and a wax head with a hair and bandage appear out of a smashed tomato, He was there. The deep wound from Jezebel from long ago and recently through an in law did not prevail.
So for those who wonder where and who God is, He is with you. Since we are made unique, as evidenced in a fingerprint, each person has a unique path and unique testimonies. I cannot explain why I have outlived some and do not know when my last day is, I do know He is with me.
Your testimony and not just experience can give hope and the power behind the testimony is a seed planted in your spirit. I have received healing from a testimony in a You Tube. I pray you, the reader, be healed and receive faith that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. If you fall into a subtle lie and trap from the devil, have heart-the truth will emerge and if you allow, let God/Jesus make it whole and turn it for His good.
