“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). Many of us have experienced how difficult it is to hear in a lot of commotion, in big crowds, in an uproar. In light of the spreading of the coronavirus, we’re seeing this today around the world. Many are in extreme anxious mode right now from fear: fear of the unknown, fear of infection, fear of lack, and fear of death. What is the answer? How can we get everyone to do what they need to do, and to remain calm__ including ourselves? Well, here it is. Jesus is the answer. Seek Him in His Word and you will find what to do to calm yourself down. So get away from the panicky crowds, get quiet, and listen to God for revelation. He’s speaking right now. In His Word, He promised never to leave or forsake us.
In quietness of reading and meditating on God’s Word, I pray we hear that God is all we need. He has all the water, for He is the Living Water. He has all the food, for He is the Bread of Life. He has all what we need, for He owns cattle on a thousand hills. Can you hear Him say, ”’I Am” the Living Water.”‘ “‘I Am” the Bread of Life.”’ “‘I Am” the Comforter.”’ With these affirmations and so many more, let us calm down, trust that God is in control, working all things according to His divine purpose, and knowing He has all of us in His righteous right hand.
“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you” (Isaiah 41:13).
I will keep on thanking God for a calm spirit in the mists of alarm. Dear Lord, I thank you for being in control of this situation and calming all my fears, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington/ keeponthanking.com
