With this Pandemic causing much pain and fear, we need to know that God is here for us.
The power of prayer comes to mind when I read that first sentence. We need to put out a plea to God to calm our spirit and help us keep strong.
My prayer last night was short, but very powerful:
“Thank you God, that you are good. Thank you for being with me during this chaos.”
This brings to mind about Biblical events where God was with someone and saw them through a storm.
Paul had every bad thing possible happen to him. Snake bites, ship wrecks, and of course he was put into prison. Did he curse God and become angry? No he didn’t. While in prison he converted several guards, and refused to have a pity party.
He knew God was with him and that he would do many great things in his paths ahead.
Did he have down times? Of course! Did he wish he could be freed to continue his mission? Yes. However, was he afraid? No. He knew God would take care of him, and see him through this storm.
Fear is a huge mean demon that over takes us far too often. It is said that 99% of what we worry about never happens, and we should turn the rest over to God. Make sense doesn’t it? God has huge shoulder, and will calm the storm.
What about this Pandemic in our lives right now?
Fear is rampant in the world today. People are hunkering down in their own homes, with no relief in sight. Some are becoming angry and wanting to be allowed to go back to work. They fear they will lose their homes and never recover.
Jesus said, “Fear not!” Only two words, but the most powerful two words in the Bible. He also said, ” I will be with you , and you will be with me.”
One thing we need to remember is to trust. Trust in God during this Pandemic makes the fear fade away.
