As believers, we have committed to Christ that our lives and times are in His hands; our dream is that our days might bring Him eternal glory.
The reality of God’s comfort and power to deliver us to eternal life is what gives us the spiritual deliverance from being dominated by pandemic in these days.
The promises of God – of life to come and of His divine purposes in this life – shade, shelter, and satisfy us.
When fears of the coronavirus and its impacts surround us, how much fierce is the security of an infinite God!
