What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?
He who did not spare His own Son, but gave him up for us allRomans 8:31
how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
In 15 days, maybe less in some countries, there was a complete blockage of people, food, services, entertainment. Everything stopped because of Corona virus.
Who thought it would be possible?
How the people behave towards each other?
It seems to me that these days we were witnesses of anger, nervousness, haste, panic, fear … especially fear. Fear have crept into people very quickly. Fear began to manifest in people.
Fear led to anger, crowds in shops, anger in the traffic. Fear led to panic as well. I see people in awe with no way out. Like birds caught in a cage.
Why is fear so quickly spread everywhere around us?
People have separated from each other and dedicated only to themselves, some in self-isolation, some of them in quarantine. Having now the opportunity to think it through, analyze their fears and realize what are their true values.
Where is God?
Why have we turned our back from God?
Why a man removed God from his life?
Hand of God is knocking on each door, including the Christians and all believers, reminding us, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you.” It is up to us to take a step closer to God or to stay still. Good offers salvation to everyone under his free will.
Therefore, this is an opportunity for you, including myself, to ask ourselves in solitude and silence of our homes: “Where is my true home? Whom do I belong to? ”And to understand, even though we are so small and powerless, God is the only One who loves us as we are.
If we belong to God, there is no need for fear or fight. It is enough just to ask God for help or to thank Him as if we had already received it: “Thank you, God, for making me healthy and strong and for being always there for me.”
We should now pray to God more than ever, for He is the One who guards us and saves us from all evil. Evil is exactly what is manifesting in the world right now: as sickness, fear, alienation from people, disbelief.
But if we believe in God and trust Him, He becomes the One who guards and cares for us. Evil then disappears and has no power over us.
Psalm 91: 5 testifies to this:
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side,
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge,
even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him,
and shew him my salvation.
This is His word which guards us and heals us in the times like this!
