Dear Brothers and Sisters,
When the whole world is not only preoccupied with but worried about the COVIC-19 pandemic, I desire that our attention be riveted upon our sovereign God and His infallible Word.
Psalm 115:3 “Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.” (ESV)
Throughout history and in the Scriptural evidence that God has graciously recorded for us, it is seen that the sovereign purpose of God must prevail, it never fails. God works all things after the counsel of His own will (Ephesians 1:11) and His will is good and acceptable and perfect (Romans 12:2). As believers, we have this strong assurance that all things really are in the hands of our God and therefore we need not be afraid. We know that God works all things together for good to them that love Him (Romans 8:28) and so whatever betide us, we can, by God's grace, thankfully submit to His will. For as long as we belong to God, we shall continue on earth until the time that He has planned to take us home comes. Let us then be careful to obey Him and to live our present time for His glory.
Romans 14:7-9 “For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.” For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living." (ESV)
