“The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!” Judges 7:20

“They are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.” Numbers 14:9

“But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went.” Numbers 14:24

Take care, O my soul, that there may also be another spirit with you, as there was with Joshua and Caleb — not to be discouraged on account of your weakness and the great number of your enemies, as if it were impossible to live holily and get the victory. Christ, a Leader infinitely superior to Joshua or Caleb, marches out before you, to make war Himself against your enemies; and who can conquer Him? He is unchangeable. His Spirit is as mighty now as ever, and His word as powerful. His strength shall be made perfect in your weakness; and with the sharp two-edged sword which He will teach you to wield, you shall destroy or put to flight all your adversaries. Afflictions and temptations may harass you from day to day — but your triumph shall soon be complete. You shall quit this sinful and perplexing world. Then shall you receive a crown from the Captain of salvation. And all that, like you, have conquered through His aid, shall unite their voices with yours, eternally in His praise. “Not unto us, Lord, not unto us — but to Your name be glory, for Your mercy and Your truth’s sake.”

Do not be anxious about anything.  (Phil 4:6)

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must rightly remember who is in control.  Our God is sovereign over all things, including COVID-19.  As Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) said, “The sovereignty of God is a soft pillow on which weary people lay their heads.” 

Remember also God’s gracious promise, and that it is true and He is faithful to keep it:  Hebrews 13:5 …”I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”  The next verse remind us of the power that comes in trusting God and how we can live:  Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man [or COVID-19] shall do to me.

God loves us, and in Christ we find confidence and calm in times of uncertainty and trouble.  When we trust in God, fear is replaced with faith, stress is replaced with strength, anxiety is gone and hope abounds, problems become opportunities, and we are able to receive the blessings God has for us in the midst of difficult circumstances. Turn to Jesus. He will lead you to the still waters and give rest for your troubled soul.  

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…Hebrews 6:19

****************************

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
