In times of fear, such as the Coronavirus pandemic, we can find our peace in the presence of God. He is the only one who can effectively prevent the contagious epidemic of fear.
We live in a fallen world that keeps us fearfully treading from one crisis to the next. It seems like every day we wake up to a new peril: virus pandemics, new flu strains, Sars, Ebola, recessions, earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, floods, fires, or other natural disaster and even the threat of other countries attacking us.
Then there are financial, physical, relationship, health, and personal crises that often catch us by surprise and strike terror into our hearts. We feel helpless as events spin out of our control.
The coronavirus pandemic is a wake-up call to us all that we are not in control of our lives and, in the blink of an eye; your life can be, dramatically changed.
Fear is one of the most powerful human emotion that can cause us to respond inappropriately or motivate us to take affirmative action. Or fear can paralyse us from taking any action.
If we cling to God and heed the words of Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Here are five Bible verses that will strengthen your faith during this chaotic time:
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Here you tell me where you say internal peace is as simple as casting all my fear, anxiety and worries on you because you care for me.
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
We will have trials and tribulation in this world but holding on to God trusting him in all our undertakings. You are going to beat this virus because the living God is on your side
