I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens me [to fulfill His purpose – I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] Phil. 4:13 AMP
The world has been in troubled times for eons due to wars, famine, plagues and natural disasters. All these misfortunes have a single source – godlessness.
God created the earth to be a paradise, a love-filled, peace-filled place for His immortal subjects to enjoy, in communion with Him. Unfortunately, we know how that turned out: a fallen world filled with fallen people, because the First Parents rebelled against their Creator.
Thankfully, God already a plan of redemption in place – through the incarnation, death and resurrection of His Son. Those that connect with God’s plan are delivered from all things, even if the deliverance comes in unexpected ways.
Nevertheless, let us fortify ourselves:
Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go… Gn. 28:15 AMP
“…I will fulfill the number of your days.” Ex. 23:26 NKJV
…the LORD your God carried you, just as a man carries his son. Dt. 1:31 NASB
“…for nothing can hinder the LORD from saving by many or by few.” 1 Sam. 14:6 ESV
“Does not God see my ways and count all my steps?” Job 34:1 AMP
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Ps. 91:11 ESV
This fortification continues through Jesus:
“According to your faith [your trust and confidence in My power and My ability to heal] it shall be done to you.” Mt. 9:29 AMP
So, the world is wracked with anxiety over this latest plague, the much-ballyhooed Wuhan virus apocalypse, which is soon to peter out – putting mud on the face of the doomsayers. It doesn’t hold a candle to many of the outbreaks that have gone before.
Hold tight to your God, to your Jesus. You can handle anything with them. They have your back.
But, let’s say that you did succumb to this ‘disease,’ which would mean you’re are much older and / or have underlying health issues, (still only consisting of a very small percentage of those infected), God’s even got that handled. You are in His plan:
…God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, for He shall receive me. Ps. 49:15 NKJV
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life…” Jn. 5:24 NKJV
Be smart, but be fearless…
Goodnight and God bless.
