Psalm 91:4 says, “His faithful promises are your armour and protection.” This is a clear instruction on how to fight the battle. I must admit that Psalms 91 has become my solid rock, the Word I cling to, before and during the pandemic.
Battle with The Word
Everyday the battle is there, it is not yours, but God’s (2 Chronicles 20:17). However, you have an active part to play, that is to stand on the promises and Word of God. Additionally, this can be challenging during the pandemic, but I guess this can just be viewed as another storm. In this battle should you choose to fight the good fight of faith or should you give up, give in and just wither away? These are the fleeting thoughts that you may have. Paul reminds us about the things to meditate on, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8 NKJV).
The Next Step
The next step is to endure knowing that Jesus had to go through so much suffering and because of what He has done, His works, victory is ours. This Truth is what keeps us moving forward in faith everyday. It is Truth, the Word of God that never changes, never lies and never fails.
I know this season is difficult for many. But be encouraged, you are strong in the Lord. In the Lord is the safest place to be today and forever. He is our refuge, fortress, hedge of protection and He is Eternal. Look up today from that place of despair, depression, disappointment and feeling downtrodden.
This season of sadness, trial and tribulation will certainly end. God has promised that He will deliver us from from all our fears, troubles and anxieties. He never lies, He can be trusted and He never breaks His Promises. “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it” – (Psalms 118:24).
