In Walk: It is a fact that in times of crises such as this current worldwide pandemic, we are forced to think of who we truly are and what we find important in life. It exposes many things about us: discernment (or lack thereof), lies we believe, our values, theology, and insecurities. As you are quarantined in your home, how do you distinguish the truth from lies, like fake news or those who twist/misuse Scripture? How about your spiritual values? If you can’t find time for spiritual matters with the time in your hands now, then something must be wrong in your priorities. What does this crisis tell you about what you believe about God? Are you secure in your standing with God and His unconditional love? Our lives and attitudes should be aligned with what God says in His Word.
In Prayer: Heavenly Father, as I continue to live in an environment that deals with Covid-19--no one could have predicted or warned people about this, but may I continue to trust You for who You are: You are sovereign, omnipotent, loving, and allows things to happen for a purpose. May you give me the ability to discern what I should believe from the many things I hear or read about everyday. I pray, Lord, that this crisis will bring out the best of who I am, my values, and my faith in You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
