As much as I try to distance myself from the virus mania, and the disruptions man’s reaction to it have brought around the world, I have to admit that God is allowing it. He is Sovereign over everything. We must look at ourselves and see that if God is allowing a plague to be all over the world, we have sinned against Almighty God. We must repent of our lack of showing God the proper whole-hearted love, respect and devotion He deserves. We obviously are NOT trusting in Him, but eating from the table of the world’s news stations, instead of eating from the Truths in God’s Word.
We must spend some serious time in prayer repenting for our sins and the sins of our nations. Asking God to reveal our sins, and how we are to pray for them. I do not believe we have spent the time in Prayer for this crisis as we should! I encourage you to gather with fellow believers and seek the Voice of the Lord.
Ephesians 5:14-17 For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Usually when God sends judgment it is to awaken the people to their need to repent. A great awakening and turning to the Lord Jesus Christ is coming to the world. We must be like Daniel and offer up repentance on behalf of the people and pray for true repentance to come to their hearts today. We must pray and continue to pray until God says “it is done”!
Romans 13:11-12 Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
