Despite the many repeated, boastful pronouncements by government ministers, the ‘demise’ of Covid-19 is NOT about to happen.
Instead, if we carefully read ‘between the lines’ we will find there that there is something very ‘supernatural about this plague!
I believe, with many other Christians, that it is a judgment sent of God upon nations that have openly defied and departed from His truth. As such, no measure taken by men will overcome it!
The Egyptians may have found some measure of comfort by the ‘power’ displayed by the magicians during the first judgment God sent upon Egypt (Exodus 7:22) but that comfort was short lived as God’s judgment intensified.
There has been no addressing or acknowledging of the anger of God toward our land because of its sin. Therefore the plague must inevitably continue.
Evidence of its continuance and ‘man-defying’ increase is seen in this report.
In the midst of it all we, like Israel of old, may seek safety and shelter in our ‘Goshen’ Exodus 8:22.
The name means ‘drawing near’. By drawing near unto the Lord Jesus and seeking the covering of His grace and power, we will be kept safe in the darkening days that are coming upon the world. Nothing can happen to the child of God but that permitted by our Heavenly Father.
When the storms of life are raging,
Tempests wild on sea and land,
I will seek a place of refuge
In the shadow of God’s hand.
Refrain: He will hide me, He will hide me,
Where no harm can e’er betide me;
He will hide me, safely hide me,
In the shadow of His hand.
Though He may send some affliction,
’Twill but make me long for home;
For in love and not in anger,
All His chastenings will come.
Enemies may strive to injure,
Satan all his arts employ;
He will turn what seems to harm me
Into everlasting joy.
So while here the cross I’m bearing,
Meeting storms and billows wild,
Jesus for my soul is caring,
Naught can harm His Father’s child.
Let us follow David’s example in prayer:
“Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be overpast,” Psalm 57:1.
Sincerely in Christ,
