Many of us believe the Bible is the Word of God. And God’s Word promises us, that if we will trust in God, He will be with us during a time of trouble — even during a Coronavirus Crisis. We need to look to Him.
Psalm 27:5 says, “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in his pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.” Right now we cannot meet together in a tabernacle (church building), but this is a time to prove that the church is not limited by a building. The church is God’s people — wherever we may be. And we can help one another, encourage one another, and trust in God wherever we are — for we are always in His tabernacle (His presence). And God promises to set us upon a rock — the rock which has our faith in Christ as its foundation. Jesus said, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” He certainly is not going to dessert us in a time of trouble, such as Coronavirus.
Psalm 138:7 says, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand will save me.” Right now our enemy is the “pestilence” or “plague” of Coronavirus. Our world, including each of us, is certainly walking in the midst of trouble. But God has promised to reach out and save us. We can take great encouragement in the fact that God is greater than any pestilence, including Coronavirus.
Let’s trust the Lord and pray for one another. He will deliver us. The Coronavirus Crisis will soon be behind us, and we will be back in church together worshiping and serving the Lord!
