Is The News Scaring You? Read This

Encourage those who are afraid. Tell them, “Be strong, fear not, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.”

(Isaiah 35:4, TLB)

We live in the days where when you turn on News channel, there is real time information about people dying in your country. Authorities instituted lockdown to help curb the spread, bringing (some) hope that at least not moving out is better. Then WHO came out again that staying home also has risk because the spread remains at household level, thereby suggesting that testing should be done at homes and infected persons removed to isolated facilities.

Life, we have grown to experience, is about spending quality time with family and friends, especially during events like Easter, birthdays, wedding, christening, etc. But who are you to dare organize an event (now). In some countries, soldiers (and police) will whip you for flouting the rules.

This development raises lots of questions on people’s mind, and breeds fear. Someone said to me that “any reasonable person would be afraid because no one seems to have solution“. Others are hoping that someday, a vaccine would be the answer. Until then, where do you stand?
Do you hear FEAR knocking? Or Your ANCHOR is fastened to the Mighty Rock?

This is the Word of the Lord if you are afraid; Be strong, fear not, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you. There will be supernatural intervention for you and your household. This isn’t time to cower to fear of what may or may not happen. You are a soldier in God’s mighty army. Remember your old hymn: Onward Christian Soldiers. It’s time to STAY STRONG and WATCH YOUR GOD DO WHAT HE DOES BEST.

Onward Christian soldiers!
  Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
  Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
  Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
  See, His banners go!
 Onward, Christian soldiers!
  Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus,
    Going on before.
At the name of Jesus
  Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
  On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
  At the shout of praise:
Brothers, lift your voices,
  Loud your anthems raise!
Like a mighty army
  Moves the Church of God:
Brothers, we are treading
  Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided,
  All one Body we—
One in faith and Spirit,
  One eternally.
Crowns and thrones may perish,
  Kingdoms rise and wane;
But the Church of Jesus
  Constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never
  ’Gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise,
  Which can never fail.
Onward, then, ye people!
  Join our happy throng;
Blend with ours your voices
  In the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honor
  Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
  Men and angels sing.
Hymn: Onward Christian Soldiers
