Yesterday I watched a couple of Sunday morning news shows. Each one of them dealt with the Coronavirus and it’s impact on our nation. Several people were asked for their thoughts on how long this will last and for the most part, none were willing to speculate because, no one knows.
We are dealing with lots of uncertainty. We would like to have more facts…but we don’t know. So what do we do?
We trust the Lord. Psalms 66:9 says, “Our lives are in his hands,and he keeps our feet from stumbling.” That verse is similar to a verse in Psalms 31 which says, “My times are in Thy hands.
Today, we don’t know what the future holds. This will be over with eventually but we simply don’t know how long it will take. But, we KNOW this; as Christians, Our lives are in God’s hands and there isn’t a better place they could be.
There is an old song entitled, “Sheltered In The Arms Of God,” written by Dottie Rambo that goes;
“So let the storms rage high,
The dark clouds rise.
They don’t worry me.
Cause I’m sheltered safe within the arms of God.
He walks with me And naught of earth shall harm me.
Cause I’m sheltered safe within the arms of God.”
No one knows exactly how long this will last but we know that we can trust God.
