This week Bro. Leo leads us on another study of the Biblical perspective of the Coronavirus crisis that we are facing at this time.
Psalm 121 tells us that even in a crisis our help comes from our Creator God and that He will sustain and protect us.
During a crisis Satan will attempt to isolate us or at least lead us to believe we are alone, like he did with Eve in the garden. When we feel isolated or alone we must remember that God is faithful to not let us go through an unbearable circumstance, He is always with us and always has a path of deliverance set forth for us (1Cor.10:13, Job 42:12).
There are two directions we can take during a crisis: 1) we can turn away from God and rely upon ourselves and those around us or 2) we can turn to God, seek God with all or heart and depend upon Him for our path to deliverance (Jer.29:10-13).
God uses our bad circumstances to draw us closer to Him, to strengthen us, correct our errors and settle us (1Peter 5:6-11). If we seek God with all our hearts, pray to Him for guidance and follow His guidance through this coronavirus crisis, we will come through it stronger and better than we were when it started.
