II Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke unto you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden in light.”
Coronavirus panic has impacted the world’s population. Humanity is on edge. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised fears to a fevered pitch (with no pun intended). People are rightfully uneasy and concerned in the absence of a clear way forward while facing unprecedented global uncertainty about their health and well-being. Policy makers across the globe are scrambling to calm the masses and create safety, while stores are running out of stock and patience is running low.
People are fearful and heavy laden. They are looking for rest in their spirits and peace in their souls.
Christians don’t have the vaccine to the virus, but we do have a counter to the concern and an antidote to the anxiety. We have the means to prevent the panic, soothe the spooked, and calm the chaos.
Christ wants to bear our weighty burdens. He offers rest unto our souls. He looks to replace fear with power, love and sound minds.
As we represent Him in a world characterized by the heaviest of burdens, may we be extra sensitive to those who are looking for peace-providing answers. May we live through His power, exude His love, and exhibit sound minds. These characteristics will stand in sharp contrast to a world that is feeling weak, abandoned, and frantic.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SAFETY OF HUMANITY AND THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS CHRIST’S PEACE TO A PANICKED POPULATION. The Lord desires to give rest to a heavy laden humanity.
