Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
During this crisis of the coronavirus pandemic, I am trying to provide encouraging words that will uplift our spirits and refocus our minds for just a moment.
Many of us are living through a time in our lives that we never imagine would happen. There are three points I want to highlight, and they are: (a) God is still in control. He knew these days were coming before the beginning of time. Nothing takes God by surprise. (b) This crisis will either bring us closer to God and we recognize Him for who He is and His sovereign powers, or it will drive away those who are already lost. (c) I truly feel that God is using this pandemic to clean house of the ungodliness and wickedness that is destroying our nation and world. Our country was built on Christian principles, and sin is presenting itself to give the appearances that overall, this country has walked away from its first love-God. The majority of us still believe and trust God. He is going to bring us through this crisis, because verse 1 of Psalm states, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. What we must do is trust God and our godly leaders who have our health and safety at heart. While it troubles me to see the many demonstrations against the very ones who are trying to protect us.
Why this troubles me so is that it shows the magnitude of evilness and corruption that exists today. God has revealed the corruption that is smothering our country. Ephesians 6:11-12 comes to mind, which states; Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Allow me to leave these words with you; Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Do not be alarmed by the evilness and this crisis, because God got us.
