KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 6:25 KJV Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
We are living in times that many people are really worried about their life. COVID 19 has cast a big question to all mankind. People are wondering, would they be the next to be attacked? Others are in doubt about the safety of their children and relations. The Lord tells us not to be worried about our lives. Worry will not change anything, rather, it would complicate matters instead. Mat 6:27 KJV “Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?” People also get worried about other matters in life. The Lord said all these anxieties are because of lack of faith. Matt 6:30. In the absence of faith worry turn to become fear. Fear has torment (1 John 4:18). It is dangerous to get into these things. Fear will always make you vulnerable to the very thing you are afraid of. Job said the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me. Job 3:25.
Fearing for your life is very, very dangerous.
IF it is about the COVID-19, observe the protocols, yet build your faith in God. This is a more potent way to secure your life. The Lord Jesus established that all things are possible to him that believe in Him. Mark 9:23. You can’t trust in His word and be disappointed. It is not possible. Romans 10:11 KJV “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” This statement is binding on God to honour. God’s words are eternal laws established in heaven, ready to be fulfilled in the life of anyone who believes in it. (Psalm 119:89,90). All these anxieties and fears proceed from a lack of faith. Get your faith built up. Rom 10:17 shows us how to get faith.
Romans 10:17 KJV “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. “Feed on the word of God. Listen to faith building messages.
To really help yourself, stop watching and reading about all the negative things, and listen rather to faith building messages. You would hear about the mighty power of God that heals and protects. The following verse is one of the certain assurances God gives to us. Isa 43:2 KJV “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Feed your heart and mind on such undeniable assurances like this. He said His word will always accomplish what that word says, in the life of those who believe it. (Isaiah 55:11)
Thy word O God have I kept in my heart, that I would not be worried or afraid. My God is mighty and gracious. I have His assurance and I’m at peace.
Mark 9:23 KJV Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Isaiah 55:11 KJV” So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
