A serious pandemic…panic….uncertainty….lockdown…..restrictions…unprecedented government action….workers salaries to be protected.
We may ask, Does God know or care? Why here? Why now? Why this way? Why me?
The Truth is God does care? Do we? Do we understand?
John 3:16 states “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Christ Jesus is the reason for the Faith that we have in Salvation. Its through Christ that we can come to God. John 14:6. 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Through our Faith in God, the very things which concern others including the current pandemic are brought into context and we end up having peace when others loose theirs.
We might think that God does not know or care.
Matthew 10: 29-31 “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.a] 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
We might think that God is distant or weak. Psalm 29 tells us to honour God for he is able to split the mighty cedars with his voice.
So God is both present, cares and knows what is going on. All we have to do is admit our weakness and humanity and God’s strength and ask Him. He is greater than the sum of all of the whole universe. He is certainly able to deal with this coronavirus.
