Believers, do not fear as the world does over this pandemic for He has promised “I will never leave you nor forsake you”
To build your faith I want to remind you that although plagues fell on Egypt the Hebrew children were protected who lived in an area known as Goshen.
Even during the plague of darkness when the Egyptians couldn’t even see each other,
There was still light in the land of Goshen!!! The Hebrews were protected even though they lived in Egypt just as we live in this world but we are not of this world.
He is still able to protect his children in the midst of a world in dark crisis.
May these few points help bring you peace:
1. OUR LIVES ARE HID IN HIM
Do not neglect a time to invest in our root structure in the True Vine as we spend time alone in His Presence where He will feed our faith.
2. DO NOT BE STRESSED/STAY POSITIVE
Philippians 4:6 In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
3. HOLD ONTO HOPE WHILE STILL BEING REALISTIC
John 16:37 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
4. DO ALL YOU CAN TO PROTECT YOURSELF
Take care of yourself or you will have nowhere to live!
Sanitize, keep active, eat healthy, get enough sleep.
1Corinthians 6:19-20 Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body.
5. THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH
Phil.4:4-5 Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. Let your forbearance be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
CHALLENGE: Saints stay encouraged and feed your faith on His Word:
Romans 8:37-39 In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
May we all use this opportunity to be a light in a dark world at this time.
Walk with the King and be a blessing!
