We are living in the midst of the greatest crises our generation has ever experienced. Not since the dark days of World War II has our nation been so suddenly shaken by an invisible enemy whose footprints cover the earth.
But we must remember this truth—we serve the One who created heaven and earth, who calls the stars by name and holds the seven seas in the palm of His hand. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who parted the Red Sea for Moses and provided fresh manna from heaven. He is the One who gives streams in the desert and makes a way where there seems to be no way.
This same God has not “given us a spirit of fear” — of panic or stress — “but a spirit of power and love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). Like Joshua, we are to be“determined and confident” in our calling despite the obstacles that come our way (Joshua 1:9).
I ask that you do not doubt in the dark what you knew in the light—the Almighty richly blesses those who bless His people, Israel (Genesis 12:3). God is a God who sees, and He has looked upon our present hardship and taken note. God has promised to provide for our needs, and it is our responsibility to be faithful in all He has called us to do and be.
