This thought was driven home to me this past week. There is some real panic abut the new virus called coronavirus. I know it can be very serious and many people have died.
I was astounded at the number of people worldwide that die from the flu each year. (upwards of 60,000) Still, any time people die from diseases, it is troubling.
There is also fear-mongering that is happening. People are crying wolf once again. (this might be what takes humans out of this planet)
And this shakes the ordinary person. It shakes the worldwide stock markets and exchanges.
Please read the following verses,
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Friends, the Lord God has this under control. I realize that this could be serious. I will take the usual procedures of washing hands and trying to stay home when I am sick.
But we serve a God Who already knows how this is going to work out. And if I lose my earthly life to coronavirus, the Lord God already knew that would happen.
We have a God that knows all and specializes in problem-solving. Why not let Him do what He does best.
As for you, as for me; let the fear go. Let go of the problems and request some of His peace. You will be glad you did.
