Dear family in Christ
For the past 6 months, the world has been grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic. Many governments, companies, businesses, hotels, airlines and hospitals have experienced such a severe shaking. Thousands of families have been affected in various ways and facing the future with uncertainty and insecurity.
During such tumultuous times, we look to the Lord for His strength and grace as God’s beloved children. The Bible has many examples of God’s people experiencing pain, difficulties and struggles and how they find strength in the Lord. I share some portions of Scripture for our meditation to receive encouragement and peace from Abba Father.
“I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.” Psalm 16:8
“The Lord is near to the broken-hearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear…” Psalm 46:1-2
“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.” Psalm 62:5-6
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2
“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2
You need not walk alone in your pain and struggle. If you need prayer or someone to talk to, the pastoral staff, cell leaders and myself are available to come alongside to journey with you as we look to the Lord together.
