My dear Friends,
I know it can feel like we are starring in the face of disaster. If you know the Lord your God, stay close to Him, and then check on the unbeliever, those that don’t.
This way, others will see how you conduct yourselves, in all things giving praise to the only One that can save while living unafraid no matter what is going on in the world around you.
The Kingdom of God is near, and people need to know Jesus now. They are hungry for Him now, not when this is over.
With churches closed and pastors not as conveniently reachable, now is time that each of us knows how important it is we become an active church by reaching through text, or on an Nextdoor app encouraging others, instead of sitting passive.
Reach your known and unknown neighbors, and see what their needs are, pray for them. Yes, we must take measures to be safe while we lead and love those around us that are afraid of this unknown.
“This I declare, that He alone is my refuge, my place of safety, He is my God, and I am trusting Him. For He rescues you from every trap and protects you from every fatal plague. He will shield you with His wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor. Now you don’t have to be afraid of the dark anymore, nor fear the dangers of the day, nor dread the plagues of darkness, nor disasters in the morning.
Though a thousand fall at my side, though ten thousand are dying around me, the evil will not touch me. I will see how the wicked are punished, but I will not share it. For Jehovah, is my refuge!
