“I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.” [Jeremiah 29:11 GNB]
Have you ever doubted that scripture? Especially when you find yourself in disastrous situations? “The scripture says God has plans to bring me prosperity and not disaster, so why am I in this situation?”
Now, let’s look at this Coronavirus pandemic. It’s killing thousands of people daily and causing panic all over the world. A lot of people, including Christians have questions in their hearts. What exactly is God saying about this situation? With all honesty, I’ll tell you that I have questions too; a lot of questions for God, but the beautiful thing is, I’m not panicking.
Each time I’ve been in a disastrous situation, that scripture has been my comfort. I’m here, living my life, happy in Christ, but if we were to judge based on those situations, I wouldn’t be happy today.
So what message am I trying to pass today? I came out of those disastrous situations. Times when I felt down, depressed, failing and habouring a lot of questions, I still came out strong, because God had better plans for me, even when I couldn’t see them.
If you’re reading this, it means you’re still alive. The CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC has claimed the lives of many, BUT IT DIDN’T TAKE YOURS. It is a day to be grateful for life. Think about those scriptures where God assures us of life and let them be your comfort. Whether the devil likes it or not, we’re coming out of this stronger.
May your APRIL be FULL of SWEETNESS, JOY, RECOVERY, OBEDIENCE and TESTIMONIES.
Much love from my heart💓
