COVID-19 A Partial Prophetic View
The prophets see in part and hear in part – so here is a portion prophetically and I pray as you read it you find yourself encouraged.
This world has been rattled by the pandemic situation of Coronavirus, which has brought turmoil to the entire globe. There were situations earlier, where a particular part of the world went through the crisis due to a virus, and this is the first time the whole world is facing and trying its full potential to get over it.
Scientists and Medical experts are trying to find out medicine to cure the virus. On the other hand, thousands of people getting buried every day. It’s said that the virus originated in the bats and jumped the species barrier into the human population. From the day it was announced till now it has been an uncontrollable disease.
We are still uncertain whether the viruses were spread from the animals or it was an intentional spreader among people by humans.
But we need to see from God’s perspective in this highly intensive period.
Why did God allow such disease into the world? If God is good and all-powerful, then why doesn’t he stop bad things happening? It is essential to note down that God is expecting something from us.
There are many reasons why I believe it may make sense for God to allow us to go through a certain amount of suffering. After all, it’s not God’s job to keep us safe, secure and pain-free. God is concerned with bringing us into a relationship with him as fully human people, often shaped by both the joys and challenges of life.
Likewise, I don’t believe God causes suffering (on the contrary it’s our own free will that brings about much of the evil in the world), but I do believe that God is wise, powerful and loving enough to use the pain of our circumstances for his greater purposes.
Because God is good, he always works to bring about good in our lives.
The Bible says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
God can turn every evil situation for the good. It is time to self analyze ourselves in the presence of God.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
It is clear that God is expecting something from us during this pandemic situation. He is expecting us to come back to him from our wicked ways. He is expecting us to be holy and willing to do the will of God.
He has given His only Son for us, and He expects us to seek His face and come under his presence.
A very often neglected verse Psalm 2:12 says “Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.”
Let us repent and take refuge in him.
I encourage you to stay in faith and decree LIFE and healing over your life, and the world today!
