The dreaded C-word. It used to be cancer. Now it’s COVID. A five-letter acronym has taken the entire world by storm. It’s confounded the wise. COVID has redefined the understanding of what personnel is truly essential. A health crisis that the dollars of the wealthy can’t buy a cure for.
With a reach from first world countries to indigenous populations COVID-19 has reminded mankind that we are all one. COVID cares not what the color of your skin is, your gender or sexual orientation. It infects and often kills without taking an inventory of your assets or degrees. COVID the ultimate level setter.
During this time of uncertainty, I am certain of one thing. This too shall pass. How, when and where are not for me to know. My role as a believer is to wait upon the Lord and be of good courage.
Last Friday believers around the world celebrated one of the weightiest events in history. The death of Christ in all its gore and brutality. A price paid to cover the sins of the world. When I think of that event as it relates to the current climate of the world, I am reminded of one of the final sayings of Christ on the cross. “It is finished.”
As we continue this journey, I pray we find comfort in knowing it is finished. My eyes tell me there is no end in sight. His word tells me, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 My eyes tell me there is no toilet paper or disinfectant on the shelves. His word tells me he is Jehovah Jireh, the Lord that provides all my needs according to His riches in glory. As we look left and right, we must remember that though we have not seen the manifestation of the promise. We know, …better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof. Ecclesiastes 7:8
My prayer is that we would display the fruit of the spirit that is patience. That we would be obedient to our leadership. I also pray we would use wisdom. That we would, forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Proverbs 4:6
