Even if we have a vaccine for Covid 19 and other deadly diseases, what about other things where therapeutics and vaccines don’t work? What about natural disasters, mass shootings, terrorist attacks, etc? We need the protection of Almighty God all the time but it only comes through faith. We need to inoculate ourselves with the Word of God.
Many people don’t think they need God’s help because they have the medical profession and scientists to help them but we all know that they don’t have all the answers and can be caught off-guard as we have seen during this current crisis of Covid 19. And as long as people can live without the power of God in their lives, they will. It’s really all up to us.
As I have been saying all along, the promises of God are always yes and He has already provided everything we’ll ever need to be successful, protected, prosperous, and totally victorious on planet earth. However, as you know God’s promises are not automatic. They just don’t fall on us like ripe cherries off a tree.
Heb. 11:6 tells us that without faith it’s impossible to please God. Everything we receive from God must be received by faith because God is a faith God and we are created in His image. He has already done His part and now we have our part to do. And that, dear folks, is where the problem lies.
If you wait ’til there’s a crisis to get your faith going in the right direction, you’ve waited too long. Any crisis will expose what you really believe. If you’re all talk and no substance, you’ll fall apart like a two-dollar suitcase. But if your faith is built on God’s Word, you’ll be like the man who built his house on the rock. When the storms of life came against him and everyone else, his house was still standing when the dust settled!
Brothers and sisters, just shooting up a prayer in desperation and hoping it sticks doesn’t work or get results. Fear and anxiety don’t work either. Scared prayers don’t work. Faith is what works because that’s how we access the power of God.
God did not cause this current crisis but it certainly is a wake-up call to show people where they really are. The devil is behind the whole crisis but as we read in Gen. 50:20, what the devil meant for evil, God can turn around for good. Let’s expect a Holy Ghost revival of God’s Word to come forth from this crisis.
We have to buckle down and get serious about following Jesus and commit to God and His Word as never before. There is a plethora of good sound Biblical teaching available for free so there’s no excuse for remaining ignorant of God’s Word. [Websites listed below.]
Gen. 1:26 and Luke 10:19 show us that God gave man the dominion mandate. We are to take our rightful place of authority and take dominion over the evil works of the enemy and be the victorious people of God we’re called to be.
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Luke 10:19 (KJV) 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Matthew 7:24-27 (KJV) 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Psalm 8:6 (KJV) 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Genesis 50:20 (KJV) 20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Isaiah 54:17 (KJV) 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Psalm 91 (KJV)
