Good morning. I hope you are doing well. I think I am moving from the state of surprise about the Coronavirus Pandemic to a state of acceptance. If everyone stays home and self quarantines, this too shall pass. Will everyone follow the advice? Probably not.
The Lord has been after us since he created us. God gave us the bible to show us how to live. God gave us laws for our good. All we had to do was walk according to his laws. Instead, we have followed our hearts and done as we pleased. We have embraced the ways of the world, instead of God’s ways. We have worshiped idols, instead of God. We are all so busy. We spend our time on everything but God.
And the Lord said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them,”
–Jeremiah 9:13-14 (NKJV)
God is still there waiting for us to return to him. During these scary, uncertain times, do you want to feel God’s peace in your heart?
God is with us, waiting to give our hearts peace.
If we search for God with all our hearts, we will find him. The Lord will bring us back from captivity. God will free our hearts from anxiety and fear and give our hearts peace.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity
–Jeremiah 29:13-14 (NKJV)
