I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” Jn:16:33
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Jn:14:27
When you hear the word Corona or Covid-19 what is your first reaction?Do you feel peaceful or do you panic?
First of its kind in our entire lifetime, we are facing such a serious and high scale pandemic. Every where we turn there is fear and panic. Fear of death, contamination, lack and lock down. Schools are closing down and hospitals are overflowing with patients. It chaos, chaos and more chaos everyday everywhere. People are scared to step out of their houses because of fear of this new virus. But as Children of GOD how do we react to corona?
Are we scared like the people of the world that we or our family or friends might be affected or are we secure in knowing that GOD is our protector?
Are we panicking listening to the news and reading articles of how many died because of this or do we have peace that surpasses all understanding?
Are we worried about our lives and worried about dying or are we praying for healing over others and protection over ourselves and everyone around us?
GOD has not given us a spirit of fear but of Power, of Love and of Sound mind.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Tim:2:17
As a Child of GOD you are by default under GOD’s protection and you are given authority by the Blood of JESUS to pray for healing and protection over others.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions(corona virus), and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Lk:10:19
There is nothing wrong in listening to the facts about corona but at the same time, remember as a Child of the King you have greater authority over it.
Here are few things you can actually do,
- Pray Psalms 91 over you, your family, friends and community.
- Pray for healing over those affected.
- Bind the virus along with its stings of death and fear.
- Claim the blood of JESUS.
- Pray for unity among Christians to unite and pray during these tough times.
- Pray for revival and Salvation of everyone in this world.
- Pray for opportunities to share the Gospel of CHRIST.
Finally remember these are the last days and JESUS is coming sooner than we could ever imagine.
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. Mt:24:7
So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Mt:24:33
I would say this with more assurance because just last week I had this dream, where I was standing in a place where it was dark and dirty and suddenly I saw JESUS coming so fast, riding on a horse. HE was dressed like a King and was riding in all HIS Glory. First thing that came to mind was we are living in a dark and ugly world and HIS return is imminent.
My friends be prepared and prepare others.
Live life to your fullest according to GOD’s will. Be assured that HE is holding you in the palms of HIS Hand.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Is:41:10
Have a blessed day! GOD bless!
