It is all too easy for all of us to follow the example of some in our world, to panic buy, stock pile and look only to our own needs. But when we read God’s word, the Bible, we realise that God is with those who believe in His promises to them. We have a protector like no other and a very real hope of eternal life in the kingdom of God on earth.
Here are 5 messages from God that we can focus on every day – I hope that they will help and comfort you.
- God is in control
“Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.”
1 Chronicles 29:11-12
- God is with us and will not forsake us.
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.”
- We have each other.
“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now.”
- Jesus Christ has told us that he is coming back.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
Luke 21: 25-27
- We’re nearly there!
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
And finally, as frightening as these uncertain times may be, let us remember what God tells us,”Be anxious for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
