In Nigeria, the stats are rising and so is fear and anxiety. Prices of goods and services have skyrocketed and people are losing hope. You can literally see people wear fear like they do clothes.
I wonder, Is this all? Is this what the devil is trying to do, fill us with fear and take our eyes away from God and His power? Have we suddenly esteemed the power of COVID-19 above the power of the Creator of the heavens and earth? Would this be the end of the faith of many? Is this what will finally break us?
In Numbers 11:23 God asked Moses: “Is the Lord’s hand shortened? Now you will see whether my word to you will come true or not!”
I believe that is the question God is asking His children today: Is my arm too short to save you and yours? Are the statistics suddenly more potent and more powerful than my Word?
What has God said concerning your life? Now is the time to believe Him. Now is the time to spend time in His Word dwelling on His promises. Now is the time to spread the faithfulness and love of God, not doom and fear. Now is the time of distinction; now is the time for the children of God to let the world know Whose they are and in Whom they believe.
May our faith not fail us. In Jesus name, amen.
