20 Mar Everything Will Work Out
When faced with uncertainty, we are often pushed to the limits of fear. Right now, with the Coronavirus, we are overwhelmed with thoughts concerning our own health and that of our friends’ and family. And while the current events are scary, it’s important to ask ourselves, do we cry out in fear or hit our knees in prayer asking God for protection?
It can be hard not to be consumed by fear when we are facing so many unknowns, but we can surrender our fears and questions of the unknown to an all-knowing God. Remember that He already knew that our world would be turned upside down and that this virus would cause chaos among men. He knew that we would be wreaked with panic and fear but, He also knows that everything will eventually work out according to His plan. He tells us that everything will be ok in life and that we don’t have to be afraid because God is always with us.
Some Bible verses that remind of to seek God and His peace include:
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”Deuteronomy 31:6
You don’t have to fear or dread anything because the Lord is with you at every step you take.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalm 27:14
“No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.” Psalm 91:10
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm”. Ephesians 6:10-13
Remember the armour of God is to be worn at all times and at any time you feel the enemy creeping up on you. You can even quote the scriptures to combat his schemes and to stand firm in your faith.
“I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.” Psalm 16:8
Even during hard times, remember that He is always with you and knows what is best for you. Keep Him in the forefront of your life and your life will prosper.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Even with the chaos of this world, God is still the one in control of every situation. You don’t have to worry about how this will affect your job, your children, your finances, etc. If you feel yourself starting to worry about these things, turn to the Lord for peace. He is the One who can take away all your worries and strife. It doesn’t have to stop us from spending time with our family and friends. Hold them close to you and enjoy their company. We will all be ok. This virus has stopped our world for the time being, but it doesn’t have to stop our faith. Stand strong in the One who can and will work out things for the good of those who love Him!
