If we have diagnose ourselves with this cancer then let me tell you the remedy from the word of God. Rev 3:20 says Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.
First, you have to Look – stop looking at yourself, the world and it things but ‘Look’ to Him who is calling and speaking to you today.
Second, you have to hear the Word– It means you must have RECEPTIVE ears. Ears that are willing to hear and heart that is willing to follow what you have received
Third, you have to recognize His voice– This need INTIMACY …We cannot recognize the voice of God in one day that’s a routine process, we must disciple our lives for that.
Fourth, do your job – Your job is to open the door of your heart after you hear and recognize the voice of God.
Fifth, Constant fellowship – After getting into the INTIMACY with Jesus Christ we must CONTINUE Sitting with the Lord, walking with Him, talking to Him, receiving from Him.
Hope you have received your inner man’s HEALTH report…read it , understand it and apply it …let Him hear who has a ear.
God bless you/Blessen Daniel
