The world has always trusted in Military Might; each day trying to invent a better weapon and testing nuclear weapons. The world has trusted in science, fame and money. Major sports games have been cancelled; bars locked down. This is a time when all these gods that our society has worshipped cannot help people. They cannot give people hope.
As believers,we have hope. In the midst of hard times, He is with us.
We know that God is above this situation and will get us through it.
The second lesson, we are learning is to live by faith. One day at a time. No one can tell what the future will be, but as believers we trust in a God that holds our future and we can trust in Him.
For parents, working at home, this has given us an opportunity to spend time with our kids. I enjoyed leading Sunday service with my family and preaching to them a message of hope.
This is a time for us to spend more time in prayer and the word, as we grow in the Lord.
I encourage you to limit the time you spend watching the news and spending time on social media; most information will create fear and anxiety in your heart, but rather listen to the Word of God and let God speak to you. The word of God gives us hope in the midst of storms of life. I slept listening to Psalms 91 on my phone, and I was encouraged.
God will protect and watch over us in this season.
Philippians 4:6-7 Tells us not to be anxious about anything but in every situation pray and give thanks.
Pray for the medical workers in Italy.
Pray for the hundreds of people that are dying, so that they know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Amen, brother Wilfred! We are with you in prayer, in focusing on God rather than the world, and being sensitive to how God can use us even in physical isolation to bring hope and light to others. Jane
Brother Wilfred thank you for reaction others for Christ through your ministry.
Lifting my voice to praise, worship and intercede for your needs.
Brother Wilfred thank you for reaching out to others for Christ. I will lift your ministry to the Lord. May His protection. peace and wisdom continue to be evident to you.
Amen pastor! Indeed at this time looking at the news is like adding salt to a wound. I have personally decided to limit the time I watch the news because it kills me seeing dead bodies lined up everyday. It’s time for us believers to take our refuge in Christ. Psalms 46
