With the world in a panic about the Corona Virus and it’s rapid spreading, we must take a moment and think. Where did this virus come from? Why is it spreading so fast? What do we need to do to stop it? Do we really need to hoard the supplies from everyone to survive?
Why would God allow such a thing harm us? Did he bring this virus here because he wants to punish us?
Since the beginning of time there has been many plagues and diseases such as the Bubonic plague, Septicemic plague, Black death, Cancer, Tuberculosis, Influenza, and many more that are killing people every day.
Covid-19 happens to have a lot in common with Influenza and is effecting the world in a bad way. We are going crazy with buying all the food, toilet paper and sanitizer.
Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with Thanksgiving, continue to make your request known to God.
There’s no need to panic God is in control. What God says is true and we need to have faith that it is. Having fear is not trusting in God.
Psalms 56: 3
When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You.
Psalms 34: 4
I sought the Lord and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
We are all in fear right now and need to stop.
Isaiah 44: 10
Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take Hold of you with My righteous right hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation.
Why Is Covid-19 Here?
As we read our bibles we learn that sickness and death was brought a pond the world when God was not pleased with us. They say if we do not learn history we are doomed to repeat it. With all that is going on in this world I’m sure God is not pleased at all. Sin is growing every day. The world is excepting things that God says is ungodly and sinful and not allowed.
Its quite possible that The Lord has brought this virus to us to open our eyes. We are not doing what we are supposed to. He did not put us here to sin. We are doing drugs, having sex with same genders, animals and whatever we want. We lie and worship money, singers, actors, even the elements of the earth, Satan, demons. We are waging war against each other, killing and stealing from each other. We are not loving one another as God said we should. We don’t even have any respect for each other. It’s to the point that its not safe to go in public because the new generations of kids don’t have the respect for others to be kind and not rob, steal and kill others.
Job 21: 30
That evil men are now reserved for the day of disaster and destruction, They will be led away on the day of God’s wrath.
Romans 12: 15
For the Law results in wrath, but where there is no law, there is no violation.
Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live on it suffer the punishment of their guilt. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few people are left.
Fear Brings Death
Since the Covid-19 virus has come there has been panic and all the stores have been struggling to keep the shelves stocked. Mass amounts of toilet paper, sanitizer, food, cleaning products have been bought by people in a panic. Fear has caused people to go out and buy all these things, yet what about the people who don’t have the money to go and get these things or the ones who go and everything is gone. How do they survive.
The elderly can’t stock up on anything, some can barely make it to the stores let alone make it there in time to even get anything. I myself went to many stores trying to find odds and ends with not much luck. Forced to order toilet paper online and paying too much just to make sure we had some.
If the world lives in fear and panic we are not thinking of others who need to survive as well. We are taking away from others not giving them a chance and only looking out for ourselves. We are sentencing them to death. Kids, the poor, people without transportation are all doomed to death over every ones fear to survive.
Joshua 1: 9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Matthew 6: 25
“Therefore I tell you, stop being worried or anxious about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, as to what you will wear. Is life not more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Matthew 6: 26
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?
In theses times through the sickness and death and destruction we should be hopeful we should be content that God is in control. None of these things going on in this world should be a surprise. The bible has told us that these things shall come to pass. God has also told us not to fear or worry but to keep your trust, faith and our eyes on Him.
Jeremiah 29: 11
For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you; says the Lord; ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
1 Peter 5: 10
After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Hebrews 4: 16
Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Never give up hope for God loves us. He is the reason for us being here. Without him we would be nothing.
It is quite possible that God has brought this Covid-19 here but if you think hard enough about it, we brought it here because of all the sin we continue to immerse ourselves in. When will we stop being so selfish and glorifying the things that are not of God and start glorifying God who has made all things possible. It’s very simple, God is love so Let’s love Him and each other as He has commanded us to and then there would be no reason to fear anything. This world could be such a beautiful place if we all just listen to God and follow directions.
We can save the world by letting God save us and obeying Him. So the way to get rid of this Covid-19 is to pray for forgiveness and start doing what God has commanded us to do.
God Bless you all. I have faith that we can come together in Jesus name and show the Lord we can change.
