When I received a diagnosis and went to make a note of it in my calendar, a scripture came to mind ever so quietly, "Why sit we here till we die?" (Story about the lepers in 2 Kings 7).
The 1st Matrix provides another awesome visual. Once Neo realizes that while in the realm others consider to be reality, the only way he could physically die was in his mind - As a man thinks in his heart, so he becomes (Proverbs 23:7). Neo got up off the ground, turned and looked at the enemy he was fighting and gave them the hand sign to "bring it!" The enemy started shooting and he put one hand behind his back and the other he raised to stop the bullets from hitting him. Instead, an invisible wall stopped the bullets and he plucked one, looked at it and let go of it, causing the other bullets to fall to the ground - which represent the fiery darts of the enemy (Ephesians 6:16). Those bullets could NOT touch him!
I hope this makes sense to you...I said all of this to challenge you. Do NOT allow your faith to rest in the wisdom of man. Instead, put ALL faith in the Power of God! (1 Corinthians 2:5). He IS faithful to complete that which HE started! (Philippians 1:6)
STAY encouraged! Surround yourself with the Word of God all over your house with sticky notes. I call it get you some "You saids". The way Jesus defeated the enemy after His 40 day fast was with, "It is written..." You said's present God's promises back to Him. NOT to remind Him of His own Word...It is to remind US of what belongs to and is rightfully our inheritance as Children of THE Most High God, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
