12. Help to get through a Pandemic

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

If you are like most people today tired of being told what to do, where you can go, and who you can see you’re not alone, even if you live alone. The Bible tells us that God is everywhere and in everything so why would we ever feel alone at any time? Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away? Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord. So if we do feel alone it is not because we are but because we choose to turn away from God or we have let something distract us from the Truth that we are never alone.

We can often look at our situations and think how can God let this happen to me, why am I going through this, or where is God during the rough times. If you have ever felt this way and got through it then you probably learned something, experienced something, or changed something in yourself or even in someone else. If you think back on past trials in your life and ask God for understanding you will begin to see how the hard times helped you to become who you are today. He will show you how He was there for and with you. Don’t let anything distract you from the Truth of Gods Love. Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Pandemic has brought a lot of things to light and people are beginning to wake up from the sleep that the Devil has put us in. All you have to do is read about how through all the turmoil throughout the year of people losing Loved ones, Jobs, and even Homes there are other that continue to help. Charities that receive less are still working other are able to do more. People are starting to help each other more because the need is more. Why did it take a Pandemic to get this started? Because a lot of us were asleep to what was going on around us. We were too worried about ourselves and those closest to us and we stopped looking out at the world around us. By doing this we couldn’t see that there has always been a great need and that what the Virus has brought to light was always here in the dark. So let us move forward in the light of God by Loving each other as we would Love God. Ephesians 5:8 For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
