Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. – John 14:1
How are people feeling about #covid-19 these days? Are you staying safe and obeying the rules about social distancing and wearing a mask or are you getting outside and hoping that the country opens back up?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
The country seems divided on how people are feeling about covid-19 these days. Demonstrators who want the country to open up feel that their rights have been violated and that the government has no right to impose control on The People over the virus.
Times continue to change the world quickly but do not be dismayed. Isn’t is strange how we don’t have investigative journalism that truthfully examines world events? trangely missing when it is needed most in this change of our times.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13
A common sentiment found on Twitter is that there is more to the coronavirus than it being a very contagious virus due to a virus shutting the country down and stalled our economy. A recent article reports that a researcher who was going to make an important finding about the coronavirus was shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide where the perp killed himself after shooting the researcher.
I hope you are keeping yourselves and your families and the world in your prayers as you reach out to the Lord Jesus Christ during these challenging times. He is at work and you know that he well knows what we are going through. Stand fast in your faith and call out to him. This is a great time of sharing the Good News of the gospels when people are afraid, in distress and have nowhere to turn.
Man is not the right person to turn to when it gets tough especially. I pray that as you read these words that you think about Christ our Savior and deliverer from the demonic and from sin.
We have a Great Priest to follow and obey. Cling to him and he will strengthen you at all times. He is real and is your best bet in finding ways to endure all things.
This may be an era of a true test of our faith when all is upside-down and doesn’t make sense.
That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe. – 1 Timothy 4:10
Surely we can overcome a virus that was let loose on the earth? Do we not know how to take care of ourselves when we come down with a sickness? Is this virus being so terrifying that we can’t wash our hands and cover our mouths when we cough? Why the fear?
The bible says,
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
