In the midst of this chaos, i thank God for His Peace, peace that I know comes only from Him. Peace that doesn’t make sense because the world is a mess and we are expected to tremble and be afraid.
Am I worried? Am I anxious? Ofcourse I am! I am human after all. And I will not tell you to not worry because even I am worried. But let me tell you this: “Give up that worry, that fear, give it all to Jesus, tell Him, cry out to Him- ‘Lord! I am so afraid! I am so worried and stressed out, will you calm my anxious heart and my mind. I give it all to You Lord, I surrender everything to You and I acknowledge that You are in control. Help me to put my trust in You, i know You got me and You promised that those who hope in You will never be put to shame.” You see we don’t know what will happen to us, our families and loved ones, but one thing is certain- God is good no matter what, and all things work together for the good of those who love Him!
We don’t know if we will be spared from this virus or any illness or danger for that matter. But like the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3) when they were about to be thrown in the fiery furnace. They said that they know God is able to save them but EVEN IF He doesn’t- they will still only worship Him!
May we be like them, praise and thank God no matter what. God is speaking so loudly to us during this time! If you have been so busy with other things- He is telling you, slow down, let’s talk. You have been so far from Me, talk to me, I will forgive you if you ask Me. Turn away from the sins that has been holding you back and come back to Me.
If you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts. Praying for everyone reading this for the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
