GOD did not give us a spirit of fear. Psalms 91 is my go to, when I am afraid. It always seems to calm my anxieties, when this ugly thing called fear tries to creep in, and overwhelm me with “What If’s”. Our world is facing something that we have never experienced before. The Corona Virus or Covid 19 is taking hundreds of lives on a daily basis. We have every reason to be respectfully concerned, but please remember that the God we serve is even bigger than the deadliest of diseases. Ladies be prayerful always, use common sense, heed the warnings and be of good courage, God is still on the throne, and He is still in control. Our faith in Him is needed more than ever now, so that we don’t lose sight of the work, that He still has for us to I do. The enemy would love for us to become so gripped with fear, that we abandon our faith in the only one that has the power to protect us. During these times of so much uncertainty, we must keep our eyes on Jesus. The one and only thing that we can be certain of, is God’s love for us. He will never waiver. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and because of that, we can trust that we will be OK. Just trust in His power to cover and protect you and your family, because He is able!
I have given you a few scriptures that will give you hope, strength a have given you a few scriptures that will give you hope, strength courage as we move forward.
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
2nd Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
1st Corinthians 16:13
13 Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous.[a] Be strong.
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear,for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.
He is coming to save you.”
19 When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
9 This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him.
His salvation extends to the children’s children
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.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear; I will help you.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
