Hebrews 13:6 “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear…” Whatever you hear about this coronavirus pandemic, please don’t allow the calamity to attack your mental or spiritual wellbeing. Stay strong. We will get through this with God’s help.
I’ve been meditating on Psalm 103 (read it). The Lord our God, El Shaddai, is the Creator. He is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and eternal. Our God is enthroned in the highest and Christ, our Lord and Saviour, is enthroned at his right hand, crowned King of Kings. The name of Jesus is higher than any name. The Scripture tells us that at his name every knee will bow. I will bless the Lord with all that is within me. No matter what calamity I go through Jesus is still on the throne.
Alive With Christ
Christian, if you acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Saviour then God has made you alive together with Christ and raised you up with Him and seated you with Him in heavenly places. You are in Christ Jesus. If Jesus is King of Kings and you are seated with Him then – in Christ – you are enthroned above all power, dominion, illnesses, and pandemics. You are under His crown. Psalm 103 tells us that the Lord has crowned you with steadfast love and mercy.
COVID-19 is a coronavirus. That is, it is a virus surrounded by small protein extensions that resemble the corona of the sun. It is these extensions that react with our cells and cause the virus to infect us. The word “corona” comes from the Latin word meaning crown. COVID-19 is a virus with a crown and its dominion is destruction. And we know who the Destroyer is (Satan). So, let us withdraw from under the monarchy of the Destroyer and decrown the “crown-virus” for we are seated under the authority of the King of Kings. The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules overall.
Christ Reigns Above This Calamity
Psalm 103 calls us to praise the Lord our God:
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy; who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Together we stand and praise the King of Kings who reigns supreme.
