Consciously choosing pain over deliverance hinders you from living a full life. Choosing deliverance seems like an easy choice, but our inner struggles cause conflict that makes the choice seem harder than it is. The struggles from within our heart and mind can cause us to focus on the pain instead of the healing. After we are wounded, it is natural to give the wound attention. The wound needs attention. At some point, after we nurse our pain, we must refocus our attention from the wound to the healing. When we change our focus, the healing begins.
