The current situation is stirring deep emotions across the whole world. As the shut-in wears on the emotions of people wear thin. As some countries face a second wave of Covid-19 we here in America are finding it hard to deal with our first wave. The “what to do” does not seem too readily present itself. In this present scenario of uncertainty, fear and mistrust are finding roots in the hearts of many. But we must never give in to the emotion of fear. Instead we must remember…
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18
In this time of great uncertainty it is important to remind ourselves not to be afraid.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” Frank Herbert, Dune
When we find ourselves fighting the power of fear in the world, here are some thought from God.
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
We are facing the creation of a new world. All of us know it somewhere deep inside of us. This time of worldwide plague and quarantine has marked us all in different ways, but make no mistake it has marked us. The old normal is not going to return. We are faced with having to create a new normal. This should not scare us. God is in the business of ushering in new when the old falls apart. He did not do this to us. He is with us through it and as we trust Him He will bring us into a new time of strength and blessing. We have a longer road ahead of us. Let’s not freeze in fear in the middle of this unknown path. Let’s walk it together in hope of better days.
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
