When your eyes are upon your symptoms and your mind is
occupied with them more than with God’s Word, you have in the ground the wrong kind of seed for the harvest that you desire.
You have in the ground seeds of doubt. You are trying to raise one kind of crop from another kind of seed. It is impossible to sow tares and reap wheat. Your symptoms may point you to death, but God’s Word points you to life, and you cannot look in these opposite directions at the same time.
