Do not fear for we are not alone. Let’s check out the following passage of Scripture from the prophet Isaiah.
Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I don’t know about you, but this passage brings me great comfort during these difficult days. The COVID-19 virus has dramatically impacted many lives.
It’s in these moments that leaning into Almighty God is the best thing we can do as believers. I can’t imagine my life without the safety and provisions of the Lord. I remember the days of trying to live without him. It was a trainwreck. And I can say today that I am so thankful I chose to change my life around. If I had to face this COVID-19 without feeling the presence of the Lord, it would be even more difficult. I am not saying every day is easy, but it is easier to trust in the Lord, and please my hope in him than to not and go this life alone. And if one thing is clear from this virus, the isolation is deafening, especially to those who are perishing – all alone without family and friends nearby holding their hand.
Oh my Lord, give us strength you promise your children in the Scriptures!
As we get up and face each day, let’s remind ourselves that we do not need to fear because God is near.
