Episode Notes & Bible Verses
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. – 2 Timothy 1:7
In this verse I want to focus in on the “self-discipline” part of this verse. As Christians we have to do the spiritual part, pray and believe for Gods divine protection over us, however, we also can be self-disciplined and do the practical by washing our hands and using things like hand sanitizers.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
I believe that the main reason why this is in the news as much as it is, is because people are responding out of fear. Do not allow fear to cause you to make bad decisions. Know that God will uphold you with His right hand.
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9-11
The name of Jesus is higher than any other name in all the universe including Coronavirus. When praying for your family, friends and yourself declare that the coronavirus has to bow and submit to the name of Jesus our Lord.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. – Psalm 23:4
This verse give us comfort that as we go through our daily lives, we know that we have a saviour that is walking with us to comfort us and help us along the way. Pray this for yourself every morning and expect to feel Gods presence with you through every dark valley.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
With these words Jesus told his disciples to have courage in spite of the inevitable struggles they would face. Jesus does not abandon us in our struggles. We need to remind ourselves that the ultimate victory has already been won and we can claim the peace of Christ in the most troublesome times.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. – Isaiah 43:1-2 ESV
Going through rivers of difficulty will either cause you to drown or force you to grow stronger. If you go in your own strength, you are likely to drown. If you invite the lord to go with you, he will protect you.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:2-4
The point here is not to pretend to enjoy or feel happy when you go through pains or tough times, but to have a positive outlook on the situation. Tough times can teach us perseverance and cause us to mature in many areas of our lives.
Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. – Psalms 91:7-10
You may be hearing all the people that are getting sick because of Coronavirus, but what you can do is pray these verses and declare that God will watch over you. You may see thousands getting sick around you but declare that this plague will not come near your home.
