The Corona Virus
Lives have drastically changed since the advent of the corona virus. You only have to go to Walmart, Costco, or Sam’s Club to buy toilet paper, bottled water, cleaning supplies, etc. to witness the ramifications for our society. “Don’t leave your house and if you do, don’t touch surfaces outside your home.” The message potentially infuses fear in my heart. What if I or one of my loved ones catches the disease? Will I have enough to get by?
The Holy Spirit’s gentle voice reminds me—He will never allow me go without. Psalm 37:25 says “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” But who are his children? The Bible says this in John 1:12. “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” I can remember long ago when I called upon Jesus to be my Savior. That means I’m a child of God and anyone else who’s trusted Jesus as Savior.
The Lord knows the day we were born, but He also knows the day we will leave this earth. I need not fear death and I need not fear the Corona virus. I trust that He will provide for me—and you, too.
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 11Corinthians 9:8. For now, I can only praise and adore Him.
