The past couple of weeks we have been looking at the world and feeling like we are watching a movie – the deaths, the lock-downs, the uncertainty, the fear. For me, this has given me time to reflect and question the purpose of life. I mean one day life is normal, the next day we are working from home and at first it feels so unreal – the more news we receive the harder reality hits, and it is no longer interesting but worrying and scary.
The world is at a standstill, and for the first time (at least as per my memory) we all understand each other’s struggles as we are all facing the same thing to some extent.
I have watched so many interviews, from experts – both qualified and self-proclaimed and appreciated what acts of service means as shown by medical professionals globally. They are giving their all to fight this virus and I pray for their strength, wisdom and peace of mind.
Last week, someone in a group I am in questioned why churches are closing their doors, and I just realized that church is not a building. We have to pray where we are, because God is not restricted to the walls of our churches – we meet to fellowship and worship communally but God is not stationed in church – He is omnipresent. We need to set an example and follow and obey our leaders, Romans 13: 1-7:
Verse 1 “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
Let us pray for those in the front line, ask God to give them what they need to help us in this situation.
Pray with wisdom, but above all pray with faith.
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
