Fear and Life During the Corona Virus!
Updated: May 7, 2020
Fear has a way of being transferred very quickly from other people and even when we don’t want to fear, we find ourselves fearing. We start to shrink back because our view of God shrinks back becomes covered with the fear and this fear can grow and become a giant in our lives, family and community.
SO WHAT IS FEAR?
It is an emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm.
Or Is it ….
Corona Virus is on the rise. Are we are all going to die? What if clinics close and I do not get access to my meds. How are we all going to survive with everyone at home? Where will the food come from? Are we are going to starve? We have all these questions running through our minds as we stay at home.
BUT WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT FEAR?
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you Deuteronomy 31:6
“So, do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Father God, as Corona Virus creates problems worldwide for a lot of people, I must confess Lord I have also panicked and had fear grip me so hard but reading your word it says you will strengthen me and your right hand will uphold me. May I not shrink back but may I stay strong and my family too in this season in Jesus Name. Amen
