“We need to stock up on food and bathroom products!!”.
What?! What is this all about?! Even a few people that I know who are Christians are scared. What happened to our faith? Why are you scared that God will not provide? Do you remember what the Bible says about fear?!
Isaiah 41:10 says, “Fear NOT, for I am with you. Be NOT dismayed, for I am your God. I WILL strengthen you and help you. I WILL uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Psalms 56:3, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.”
Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be Strong and Courageous. Do NOT be frightened, and do NOT be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you WHEREVER you go.”
So, should we be afraid of this “Kung flu” as I’ve heard it said? No! God will provide if He wants you to be healthy and safe! Sure, if God were to want you to get the coronavirus you’ll get it. If it is not His will then you will be fine!
Luke 17:6, “And the Lord said, “If you had faith like the grain of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”
Faith! That’s all we need! Besides, most people that have died from the virus are elderly or people with health issues. And there is no way to prevent yourself from this virus. Only people that have the coronavirus can prevent people that don’t(have the virus) from having it. So far, everyone that has it is isolated in a hospital. And there are other viruses that have killed people that no one seems worried about! Sure, it won’t hurt to wash your hands after being in public or if you wanna clean your house more often just in case. But there really isn’t much to worry about as long as you have Christ and faith in Him.
Leave with these thoughts,
Do you think that you need to take things into your own hands? (You do not need to ever)
Are you really strong enough to protect yourself from all that comes your way? (No. Only God is)
Is it better to put your faith in Christ to do His work? (Yes! Please, put ALL your faith in Christ.)
*I am not telling you to not do anything about any of this. I just want you to be aware that God holds everything in His hands. I am also not saying that you should not pray for those who have the virus. It is important to pray for everyone who is sick.
