He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the traps of the enemy and from the perilous diseases.
Are you worrying about all of the stuff that is happening all around you? Do your worries paralyze you and keep you from leaving your house and enjoying the things that you once enjoyed? Or, have you developed the attitude that prevailed in the days of Noah; “Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die?” More to the point; do you fear Covid?
While involved in one of my daily activities (Channel surfing) yesterday I noticed that the football stadiums were filled to capacity and I didn’t see a single person wearing a mask. Somewhere along the way they must have laid aside their fears to support their favorite teams. Today it will be the same for professional sports. Do you think that all those people have been inoculated? Do you think that all those people are trusting in God to keep them safe? Just asking.
Do you believe God’s Word for yourself? Is he really your refuge and your strong fortress? If He is then what do you have to fear? What is there that God cannot protect us from? Do we think that He is not aware of our situations?
Friend, God knows and He will not fail you. Some good folks that we know have died and the cause of their death was attributed to Covid. Was their death out of the plan of God? Did God not protect them? Was He not their refuge and their fortress? Of course, He was and they are now in His presence forevermore, never to suffer pain and sickness again.
The end of this life is not the end of life but the beginning of life that will never end. So what do we do? Should we not continue to do the things that are holy and righteous and trust the Lord to be with us and care for us in all things. YES! Amen and amen.
