During these challenging times across the globe, it is important to remember that we serve a loving God and he is still in control. Panic and fear are far more dangerous AND contagious than any virus.
It’s important to also remember that we serve a God of love and compassion. NOT a god of confusion and fear. Pray, have faith in the Lord, and wash your hands. We will all get through this challenging time. Check-in on those who may be lonely or need help. Look for ways to help those most vulnerable and in need. May this prayer and meditation bring you peace, comfort and a renewed focus on the Lord.
Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your word and will into our lives for your glory. Please give us peace and comfort in these difficult times. We ask that you heal and help those in need and who are ill. In Jesus’ name…
