"Don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God."
These are stressful and worrisome times! There's a lot to be concerned about. I can't imagine the impact this pandemic has had on everyone. Many, have been affected by it in one way or the other.
One thing for sure is this, we cannot afford to get spooked by every news media outlet and their take on the subject of the Covid-19. It's imperative that you and I understand the facts, take the necessary precautions, stay home, and keep the faith. Once you do everything you can, you leave the results to God. He is Omnipotent (all powerful), Omnipresent (everywhere at all times), Omniscient (all knowing), and He is God all by Himself.
We, as a nation, have never traveled this road before, and the powers that be (on the earth) don't have all the answers. They just don't know a lot about this virus but, God knows everything about it and how it will affect each person's body. He's the one we should be consulting!
If you have loved ones who are sick with the Corona Virus, pray for them earnestly, and fervently. If you are also in the throws of the virus, pray to God and tell Him what you need. He's listening, and He is here for you, right now, in the present. Place your trust in the one who has all the answers. He will give you peace that is beyond understanding.
I am reminded of the one who spoke the world into being by saying, "Let there be", I am encouraged. There is nothing too hard for God. All He has to do is say the word and poof, it'll all be gone! Remember the woman with the issue of blood? She said, if only I could touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole. She really believed that! (Matt. 9:20-22; Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-48) What are you believing Him for today? Remember when Peter's mother in law was sick with fever and she was seriously ill, Jesus came to her and ordered her sickness to depart and just like that, it left her and she got up and started serving them. (Luke 4:38-40)
God is in charge, not the president or the powers that be on this earth. Make your appeal to Him, first and foremost!
I don't know what you're going through right now, maybe it isn't the Corona Virus, perhaps it's something else bothering you, whatever it is, Jesus is on the mainline, tell Him what you want, call Him up and tell Him what you want! He is faithful, He loves and cares for you, and He can be trusted!
Don't give up, don't give in, keep the faith!
As a writer, I enjoy giving you the honest side of truth! As an artist, I create what doesn't exist. Each day I look for new and creative ways to use every ability God has so graciously given me.
