FACING THE ENEMY

A dark shadow has fallen over the world. Within a few weeks, the coronavirus moved from one country to another, from one state to another, from one person to another. An insidious, invisible enemy has taken the lives of thousands and left many imprisoned by fear.

In the midst of this “war,” our government leaders have given us a protocol to help us protect ourselves and our loved ones. We should follow those recommendations. They make sense. But, is it enough? There is one more resource many of us have neglected for far too long. That is the One True God who is able to sustain us through this difficult time.

In his daily devotional book, God’s Way, Charles Stanley wrote this message: “The Spirit-filled life is not a life without responsibility or pressure. It is, however, a life in which God is seen as a faithful provider that we are free to do what we know to do while trusting Him with those things that are beyond our control.”

Remember these words of the prophet Nahum: The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him.Nahum 1:7
