Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you. (Jeremiah 32:17)
Sometimes we find ourselves in battles that seem unwinnable and like the kid who gets bullied by someone twice his size, thinks, “It’s no use, I (we) just can’t win!
Well, that is how it seems for some now in the battle against coronavirus. But things aren’t always as they “seem”. Our Country is fighting back. Big time. And things are happening. Good things. Prospective treatments for the corona virus. A flattening of the curve (who ever thought we would echo that phrase?). And more and more people and corporations are joining the fight.
But nevertheless, we are in the middle of an unprecedented situation. Although the Church of Jesus Christ has endured plaque, pestilence, persecution, and war for over two thousand years, in recent times we have been mostly shielded from them.
But God brought His Church through those times sometimes with a great show of power and other times by working behind the scene. Could it be . . . He is why things are improving. So, let’s keep praying like Jeremiah did and wait for the Lord’s response:
“The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?”
