Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in the heavens; he does whatever he pleases. Psalm 115:2-3
The Psalmist reminds us in this Lenten season, that our God is in the heavens and that he is in control of everything. As we are currently faced with the global threat of a virus (Corona Virus), which has the capacity to destroy a significant portion of his people; this psalm reminds us that we must not lose faith and ask "Where is our God now? (vs 2) Rather, that we must, in FAITH, remember that he created the heavens and the earth, man and all that is in it. We must remember that he will spare the earth for the righteous’ sake. Let us now more than ever exercise our faith and belief in our creator God while exercising good health practices and relationships which have been recommended by the resource persons, which he has prepared and provided to help us overcome this international trauma.
Let us remember that our God always has a saving strategy. We must not forget the flood and his saving strategy through Noah and his family. (Genesis 6-9) We are reminded in Isaiah 40:5 that "The glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it”.
Let us proclaim the glory, majesty, power and magnificence of our God in resolving this global pandemic for all the world to witness and proclaim.
Dear Lord we commit our health and that of your people throughout the world to your care and control. Amen.
