A FEW THOUGHTS ON THE CHRISTIAN & THE FEAR OF COVID

 

The Greatest Companion of Covid is Fear. It’s a Supernatural Thing from the Enemy. Fear is there Before, During & After Exposure, as well as, Infection. Fear of Death, Fear of Loss & Fear of the Unknown. Fear is a Natural Human Response of the Flesh. YET WE, AS CHRISTIANS, MUST Remember what the Lord, The Creator of Heaven & Earth tells us From His Everlasting Word: “Fear Not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

 

CHRISTIAN, God has NOT given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind! There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. If we seek the Lord, He will hear us, and delivered us from all our fears. The fear of Covid brings a snare, a trap, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord our God is with us wherever we go. Whenever we are afraid,Trust in the Lord. In God (we will praise His Word), In God we must put our trust; we will not fear.

 

What can Covid do to us as a Child of God? Let’s be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let our requests be made known to God. Bless the Lord, Believers; and all that is within us, bless His holy name! Forget not all His benefits: who forgives all our iniquities, who heals all our diseases, who redeems our life from destruction, who crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies our mouths with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.

 

He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever.He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For Heknows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His commandments to do them. The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.
