Get vaccinated with a dose of Faith.
Read Psalm 91 aloud (below), and let the power of His words melt away your anxiety and fear. As you read the psalm, you can turn it into a powerful prayer to the Lord in behalf of you and your loved ones. God is greater than the hardships we face, and no problem is too great for God…not even COVID-19!
While He has us in a world-wide Holy Time-Out, you can replace panic with peace by spending time feasting on the soul food of His Good News, not the constant social feed of bad news.
God is teaching us to trust in HIM — Not the economy, not the stock market, not your job or your bank account.
Put your faith in the One who has overcome the world and rest in the shadow of His wings.
Choose Faith over Fear!
Psalm 91 ~
Whoever rests in the shadow of the Most High God
will be kept safe by the Mighty One.
I will say about the Lord,
“He is my place of safety.
He is like a fort to me.
He is my God. I trust in him.”
He will certainly save you from hidden traps
and from deadly sickness.
He will cover you with his wings.
Under the feathers of his wings you will find safety.
He is faithful. He will keep you safe like a shield or a tower.
You won’t have to be afraid of the terrors that come during the night.
You won’t have to fear the arrows that come at you during the day.
You won’t have to be afraid of the sickness that attacks in the darkness.
You won’t have to fear the plague that destroys at noon.
A thousand may fall dead at your side.
Ten thousand may fall near your right hand.
But no harm will come to you.
You will see with your own eyes
how God punishes sinful people.
Suppose you say, “The Lord is the one who keeps me safe.”
Suppose you let the Most High God be like a home to you.
Then no harm will come to you.
No terrible plague will come near your tent.
The Lord will command his angels
to take good care of you.
They will lift you up in their hands.
Then you won’t trip over a stone.
You will walk on lions and cobras.
You will crush mighty lions and poisonous snakes.
The Lord says, “I will save the one who loves me.
I will keep him safe, because he trusts in me.
He will call out to me, and I will answer him.
I will be with him in times of trouble.
I will save him and honor him.
I will give him a long and full life.
I will save him.”
“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;”
I will help you.
My Precious Child,
No matter what you are facing, don’t be afraid or intimidated. Don’t be discouraged or dismayed. As you walk through the “wilderness” of the world, there’s no need to fear because I’m your God, your Heavenly Father, and I’m always watching over you. Don’t panic.
I’m the Friend who will never leave you alone or forget about you. I’m right here by your side. When you feel too weak to go on, I will give you the strength you need to endure. I will help you through this. I will hold you up and support you. I won’t let you fall. I will hold your hand with My firm grip. I’m not letting go!
Believe in My promises to you. You have nothing to fear.
Love, your Heavenly Father
Trust that God is big enough to supply anything you need: comfort when you’re in pain or grieving, healing when you are sick, safety when you face danger, compassion when are heart-broken, friendship when you are lonely, support when you are weak, courage when you are fearful, provision when you are in need, and never-ending, limitless love and grace to all.
Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27 (NIV1984)
Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles;
It takes away today’s peace.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV1984)
The Lord is the light of my salvation-
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life-
Of whom shall I be afraid?
Though an army besiege me,
My heart will not fear,
Though war break out against me,
Even then will I be confident.
Psalm 27: 1, 3
God does not lack the power to bring order to a chaotic world…or a chaotic life. You may not be engaged in a physical war, but you may feel besieged by a battle you are facing in your personal life. Your struggle could be a medical crisis, a relational rift, a financial stress or an internal trial. Regardless of which type of war is breaking out against you, you can find the strength to endure by placing your trust in the One who is the light of your salvation and the stronghold of your life. With God by your side, you can face any situation with courage and confidence…and without fear.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…” Hebrews 6:19
Do you ever feel as though life’s circumstances are engulfing you like a powerful rip tide, pulling you into a tumultuous sea of despair? You are powerless to the force of the current, and the more you fight against the flow of events, the weaker you become. When life is seemingly out of your control or when events take a sharp, unexpected turn, remember that by placing your hope in our Heavenly Father, He will be the immovable anchor for your soul. His promises are unchanging and true. His love is unfailing. His strength is limitless. Regardless of what you are going through, you will be secure in His grasp. Just as a ship anchor holds firmly to the seabed, our hope is firm and secure when our souls are anchored in God.
When the World says “Give Up,”
Hope whispers, “Give it One More Try.”
“We have this Hope as an
Anchor for the soul,
Firm and secure… ”
Hebrews 6:19 (New International Version, ©2010)
“But You Yourself (God) have seen trouble and grief,
observing it in order to take the matter into Your Hands.
The helpless entrusts himself to You;
You are (our) Helper…”
Psalm 10:14 (Holman)
God is watching over you
God is observing each minute of your life. He sees everything you are going through. Nothing is too difficult for Him to handle. He wants to take your trouble and grief into His hands. Entrust your life to Him and seek His Heavenly Help.
