As the world battle the corona-virus disease outbreak, I imagined many of us have not seen anything of this scope in our lifetime. Quite frankly I still can’t get my head around the whole pandemic. A couple of weeks ago as tension and fear arose across the global, I felt glad and thankful that only two cases of corona virus had been reported where I am at currently. However, when I knelt to give thanks and express my gratitude to God for the low statistics in my Country. This scripture came to me:
“Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape”
— Esther 4:13
My country commenced corona lock-down last Sunday and as at the time of writing this post the number of corona-virus cases have risen to 18.
Perhaps God wanted to bring to my understanding exactly what is at stake worldwide. The corona-virus is affecting everyone globally in such profound ways. He wants me to be mindful of the fact that we are all connected in this endeavour and perhaps this is the most important message of this horrid experience.
We’re praying to God for a miracle, a positive outcome. As we wait upon God’s intervention, I pray that as a world, a nation, a community, households and individuals, we will carry on through this crisis much kinder, stronger and more united! That will be the silver lining.
If, this crisis doesn’t change our “me” into “we” and our “them” into “us” then our sufferings will certainly be in vain!
In the meantime, we must seize each day as it comes. Let us focus on what is within our control and make something positive come from it.
More importantly let us stay connected, because when all is said and done, what have and need most, is one another.
Stay blessed and stay safe.
Jesus is STILL Lord!
