Key Scripture- Romans 8:35
Luke 18:1- Men ought always to pray and not to faint.
This widow wearied the unjust judge with her supplication. The judge must have caused many sufferings and hard times yet this woman came persistently even though he did not fear God and man. Jesus said “if this unjust man can grant this woman her petition when she continued seeking, how much more God?”
What can stop you from following Jesus Christ? We in unprecedented times, when Jesus comes, will He find faith in you, will He find you serving God? What we as Christians doing at this time? Years ago, the Church would have been considered at the forefront of such a crisis. The world needs Jesus. At such a time as this where churches have been asked not to meet, prayers will be affected, pastoral visits will be on hold, and hospital visits too. However, this is the time we should come together to pray and continue in prayer and fasting (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Genesis 11:1- The Tower of Babel.
We are living in similar times as the Tower of Babel; the world is of one purpose and implementing the same strategy of social distancing. In Genesis 10, Nimrod, a mighty warrior in the land of Shinar, was mentioned. He was likely leading the charge in the Tower of Babel project in Genesis 11. At that time, the whole world was doing the same thing, which might not appear to be an issue. However, in Genesis 1:28, God told man to be “fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it” and at the Tower of Babel the people were going against this command. Also, we are made differently, Jesus said to some He gave 5 talents, some 2 and others 1. Ultimately, we should remember that things that look good can be a worldly mechanism for controlling man, and negate the will and plan of God.
To everyone that is called to be a worker in the house of God, continue and don’t stop. Don’t let the work of God suffer; mind what you say and listen to, keep to the rules and instructions of our Government, but never stop praying and waiting on God. This shall too pass, but let it be that when it does, you are stronger, better and resolved that nothing can separate you from the love of Christ.
