I was praying and asking God for some encouragement and felt the following for everyone:
It is a difficult time in our country and the world, so many things that have everyone worried and heavy-hearted.
Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me. all who labor and are heavy laden, and i will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Let us bring all the things that have our minds labouring and weighing us down to the Lord, let us find rest in Him.
Job 1:1-3
Job had 7 sons, 3 daughters, 7000 sheep, 3000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys and many servants.
He was the greatest of all the people in the east.
When satan tested him all of that was taken away from him, all his property and children, even his health was attacked.
Sounds like a crazy time in his life, similar to what many of us are facing at the moment.
Uncertainty with regards to work, finances and the wellbeing of ourselves, family and friends.
In Job 42 Gods restores all that was lost back to Job because Job did not let go of his Faith in God.
Joel 2:25-26
A promise to us from God that he will restore what the locust(Covid19) has eaten.
Romans 8:32
God did not withhold His own Son for our sake.
He will not withhold the things we need and will take care of us.
In Exodus 14 the Israelites faced an impossible situation.
They had the Egyptians behind them and the red sea in front of them.
We are all facing situations that are impossible for us.
But God is faithful and nothing is impossible for Him.
He brought the Israelites to safety. He has not changed, He will bring us through these tough times.
We need not worry, because the God we serve can do the impossible, restore what has been lost and no matter how crazy it may seem to us, He is still in control.
Stay safe and be blessed.
