'God Is Bigger Than the Coronavirus': America, It's Time to Pray!
The coronavirus pandemic is a disturbing and terrifying disease plaguing thousands of millions of people nationwide. Many are sick and tired, and various others have died, putting Americans in an absolute panic. I will never say there is no need to be disturbed by a severe crisis. Nor would I advise people to disregard the advice of the health experts. But to fear and panic are certainly not of God. When you allow fear to make to feel, you don’t have control, the truth is, you don’t know God. Because if you did, you would understand God is bigger than the coronavirus that is plaguing America, and it’s time to pray.
And those who are concerned about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and not sure what to be done, let me offer some advice, you need to turn your panic into prayer. The nation needs some help, and unless the situation changes real soon, many more will become ill and die nationwide. And the President, Mayor, or Congress can’t save us. No man nor leader will bring us out of this pandemic stage. Our country is so desperately in need of God more than ever today.
The President and the lawmakers in Washington will try to put together a force to deal with the epidemic spread of the coronavirus. They will do what they can, but the outcome is outside of their control, they can’t fix this; God is in charge. He has the final say. I pray that all those who fear being affected by the virus will awaken. Repent, and turn from their wicked ways to understand their only hope is God’s protection during these trouble times.
According to research, there are more than 121,000 cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) in 114 countries nationwide and approximately 4,373 people have died. And as the alarming spread of the coronavirus rises, panic, by confusing and frightening, I watch people empty the store shelves of needed items such as water, hand sanitizer, toilet tissue, sanitizer wipes, paper towels, face mask, and Lysol spray. I’m not quite sure why so many cleared the store shelves, but I do know this is a wake-up call from God. Do not enable this crisis to pull you away from God and the help He wants to give. You know that things are bad when the President called for a National Day of Prayer. That alone lets me know; it’s time to pray.
“COVID-19 is not just a medical challenge, but a spiritual challenge too. To defeat this humanity need to follow the path of self-purification and the path nonviolence, God and the Nature.”
― Amit Ray
As the coronavirus plague the nation, Many things have been canceled leaving so much pain. And people are asking, “Why” has God allowed such a terrible thing like the coronavirus (COVID-19) to pledge the nation. Some might even question. “Why didn’t God create a world where tragedy and suffering don’t Exist?” The answer to everything about God and what he allows can be read in the Bible.
If you are questioning what the Bible says about God permitting evil? You should consult the Bible, but let me share, God did not cause the world in the state in which it is today. He builds the world in his image, full of love. He created a man to praise Him, but sin came as a result of the selfishness of man. Although evil is present, don’t let it infect you. Evil can be defeated, but the only way possible to slay evil is tantamount to pray. It releases the power of God to work.
And as I sit in front of my TV watching live-streamed from Governor Abbott. He speaks of the death of several people in the state of Texas, and to hear him declare the State of Disaster. The nation needs to pray because the worst of this virus has yet to come. But allow me to point out this: God is bigger than the coronavirus. He is more powerful than any crisis in the state of Texas or any country may be facing right now.
So many of us preoccupied with the things of this world. We live as a slave to sin and forgot about God. We do not take the time to pray. His Word is still going forth, but because most of us are not willing to listen, we don't unite ourselves with God in prayer. Young underage girls are becoming mothers early and not available to defend their children. The husband and wife do not steal time for each other and that leads to divorce, and our life is so out of balance until God is angry with us.
The people who violate God’s law and accept sin in their lives have not taken the time to learn about God, nor has they perceive we don’t have to suffer alone. God is willing to accompany us in our time of need in the most intimate of ways. God’s love is great for his children and because he cares. We can go to him in prayer. And trust that he is available to hear us and he will deliver us.
Because people have not learned how to trust God, so many people are living in fear concerns the COVID-19 virus. They are watching live updates or reading the information the Internet feeds them on the coronavirus and fails to remember the Bible says, where two or three are gathered in my name. I am there among them. God is with us. There is a spiritual factor for every problem. And for the coronavirus, the solution is it’s time to pray.
There’s power in prayer when you feel a sense of isolation that compounds the fear, you must turn to God and request him in your time of need. The Bible teaches of how many men and women of God prayed and how their faith got a result, and we can pray and have faith as well. No matter how harsh the coronavirus gets, God is pleased to answer prayer today. We need to turn our panic into prayer and let me remind everybody. “With God. All is possible.”
The nation has never seen a pandemic do so much damage and kill more people in absolute numbers. But, allow me to point out. “God is bigger than the coronavirus that is plaguing America, and it’s time to pray.”
“A prayer of faith shall change any circumstance.”
― Lailah Gifty Akita
God is open to hearing his children's prayers. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) tells us, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
What can one do during the rife of the coronavirus, especially since prayer is needed for all Americans? Accordingly, as one nation, you come back to God, you unite yourself with Him in prayer, ask Him to protect and heal the many that are affected by the coronavirus pandemic. But, with so many losing their lives, sometimes it’s hard to affirm where to begin or know how to pray. Amidst, the loss of love one’s people have a deep ache in their hearts, so it’s time to cry out to God’s for mercy pray he heals the land.
In conclusion, no manifestations of evil, nor the COVID-19 disease can affect or destroy the purpose that God has for his children. When you believe in a God that you know is able and make Him your refuge. Nothing will affect the will he plan for your life. The coronavirus is a contagious disease, but there are ways to protect yourself to prevent spreading the disease to others; defend yourself by:
- Make sure you wash your hands on a regular, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a mask.
- When you cough or sneeze flex into the elbow, and not your hand.
- Avoid close contact, be at least 1 meter or 3 feet from the person who is ill.
- If you feel unwell, stay home and self-isolate from others.
God promised that if His children would obey Him, He would answer them in their time of need. And He is not a man that he should lie. These wise words share that, “God is bigger than the coronavirus that is plaguing America, and it’s time to pray.”
Do you agree, God is bigger than the coronavirus that is plaguing America, and it’s time to pray?
