For I’m going to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Don’t you see it? I will make a road through the wilderness of the world for my people, and create rivers for them in the desert! Isaiah 43:19 I encourage you to watch Pastor Greg Fairrington of Destiny Christian Church speak on The New Normal.
Shelter-in-place continues for American’s across our country due to COVID-19. As Christians we work to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our strength depends. See Atlanta’s Creflo Dollar’s word here. Together let’s continue to fight the good fight in our hearts and minds, knowing that the fight itself is not against each other, but of an invisible, yet real enemy.
Ephesians 6:14-18 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
Romans 12:2 says – Let us not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform us into a new people by changing the way we think. (Watch here: Power Thinking by Joel Osteen) Then we will learn to know God’s will for each of us, which is good and pleasing and perfect to HIM. In Psalm 46:10 God’s word says to be still and know that HE is God! This doesn’t mean we don’t make effort to do our part during this crisis. We should continue to make effort to overcome and move past the coronavirus pandemic as a United States, a unified world, and a human race.
“You are sovereign LORD and still on the throne. Because you are timeless and never change, our faith, hope, and love remain in you. AMEN!”
